On Friday night I had the pleasure of attending the Perth Fashion Festival's WA Designer Collections show, which showcased work by some of the best West Australian fashion designers. As someone who much prefers vintage treasures to the latest designer wares, I was still very impressed by the collections and found myself lusting over the beautiful fabrics and colour palettes more than anything else. So without further ado, I thought I would share my favourites from the show with you all!
The standout collection for me was definitely Peppermint Milk (surprise surprise). The bows, flowers, flouncy details and full skirts were right up my alley! Don't even get me started on the wedding gown that was featured, complete with a flower train. So amazing!
On a Whim
Tindale also impressed me with their choice of fabrics and flowing, draped styles. The grunge loving side of me is completely drooling over the shredded black and khaki piece above.
While I rarely take to minimalistic styles, there was something about the Anna Excell collection that caught my eye. There were a range of monochrome looks, with this burgundy number really taking the cake. Mmmm burgundy.
Martini & Coz
Martini & Coz
I adored the rebellious mood conveyed through Martini & Coz's collection. This Union Jack inspired piece was a definite standout, with the ever appropriate "London Calling" by the Clash playing as it was modelled down the runway.
I totally fell in love with the colour palette used by Catini Designs - lots of moss green and deep rose tones. The above dress has totally inspired my to invest in more flawy silk pieces. The way the dress was moving made me swoon!
I'm loving these floral pants by Wild Horses, who also featured some amazing necklaces with their looks.
Little Gracie's opening boy
As far as evening wear goes, Ange Lang had some stunning floor length gowns (most with rather extensive splits!) The above black lace number was incredible - just the right combination of classic and modern sex appeal.
I'm feeling pretty darn inspired after this show, I must admit! To think that all of these wonderful creations are from WA designers is so impressive.
