#Perth Fashion Festival Closing Night Finale
This is how to pull off a spectacular fashion festival finale. Combine a 12 piece orchestra, live opera, brilliant make-up artistry, spectacular millinery, the latest creations of over 20 of Australia’s and Western Australia’s stand-out designers and and set it in a venue that is equal parts architectural masterpiece, cultural jewel, with intimate feels but able to hold a large and hard-to-impress crowd. With all this, the organisers of the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival 2016 delivered an extraordinary closing act. #WowFactor!
Designers on show included Aurelio Costarella, Steph Audino, Jonte, One Fell Swoop, Sheree Dornan, Megan Salmon, Empire Rose, Mischka Aoki, Monster Alphabets, Elle Campbell, Zhivago, Morrison and Garth Cook.
The Art of Fashion event celebrated fashion off the runway, as much as it did on, with Perth’s fashion loving audience glamorously wearing their favourite designers. With as many Perth celebrities, socialites, designers and creatives attending as there were sequins on gowns, we can’t begin to start naming them. Can we just say The Bachelor’s Richie and Alex obliged the crowd with heaps of selfies?
Here’s what we saw of the closing night finale.
