TPFF 2016 Launch…
The Glam Whisperer aka JoAnn Goh was excited to attend the launch of the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival (2016) last Tuesday on our behalf with photographer Alain Quah. Rocking up to the Art Gallery of Western Australia with fellow bloggers and fashion industry insiders, our crew saw Telstra Perth Fashion Festival’s exciting programme unveiled by Festival Director Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan.

So, Who was at the TPFF 2016 Launch?
Fellow bloggers attending included States of Style, Inspiring Wit, Running in Chanel, Fashion Addicted Panda and Dynamique to name just a few. Industry insiders included designers from Empire Rose, House of Skye and Betts. Stylist Zoe Van Zanten and writer Daniele Foti-Cuzzola from weekly Perth glossy STM Perth were also in attendance. Every hard working fashionista needs their coffee #goeswithoutsaying and refreshments were gratefully received from Grouch & Co, especially since it was a morning reveal!
