There’s a first for everything and for us it was the standing ovation that Perth audiences gave for the Empire Rose runway show at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. Designer Kathryn Cizeika’s dramatic offering brought the enthralled audience to their feet. #Notseenatafashionfestivalanywhere
We’re talking huge white wigs, jewel encrusted face nets, dry-ice smoking from accessories, a pumping sound track and a back tattoo that would hold its own in the Louvre. Then there were the designs. Think couture street fashion. Combine edgy street wear with romance, metalics, sequins and leather, or bomber jackets with active-wear inspired leather pants. It’s no wonder the trendiest of Perth’s fashion set and VIP’s were in attendance. And more than a few were wearing Empire Rose designs, as they have been doing each day of the fashion festival.
