FASH­ION lovers and brides-to-be will con­verge on pic­turesque Araluen Botanic Park for a spe­cial fash­ion event on Sat­ur­day.

Fol­low­ing the huge suc­cess of last year’s event, the 2018 Spring into Ar­madale Fash­ion Show will show­case cre­ations from two of the WA fash­ion in­dus­try’s top de­sign­ers.

Alvin Fer­nan­dez of ae’lkemi will fea­ture a range of his cock­tail and evening wear, while Sa­man­tha Wynne Bou­tique’s name­sake Sa­man­tha Wynne will show off her own bridal de­signs, as well as those from Pronovias and Wat­ters Brides.

Lo­cal sis­ters Leah and Amanda Mid­dle­ton are among a group of stu­dents from the Fash­ion Ad­vo­cate’s Life Skills Men­tor­ship pro­gram, headed by Jimmy Choo cor­po­rate ad­viser Cather­ine Birch, who will model the de­signer cloth­ing and bridal dresses.

Ms Birch said it would be a spe­cial op­por­tu­nity for those in the men­tor­ship pro­gram.

“The pro­gram has been de­liv­ered for the past seven years as an out­reach to lo­cal schools and com­mu­ni­ties, iden­ti­fy­ing male and fe­male stu­dents to learn lead­er­ship, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, team­work and skills to pur­sue ca­reer path­ways in the fash­ion in­dus­try,” she said.

As well as the fash­ion shows, at­ten­dees will also be able to en­joy a bou­tique expo that will in­clude Tyler Reid Hair, FuMoso, Con­scious Can­dle Com­pany and Char­lene O’Brien cou­ture.

Ar­madale Mayor Henry Zelones said the Spring into Ar­madale Fash­ion Show was al­ways a pop­u­lar event on the lo­cal cal­en­dar.

“It is fan­tas­tic that we have qual­ity venues such as Araluen Botanic Park in which to de­liver th­ese sorts of events, show­cas­ing our won­der­ful City and all it has to of­fer to vis­i­tors from around the state,” he said.

Spring into Ar­madale is an an­nual pro­gram that aims to boost tourism and trade in the area through arts, fash­ion and cre­ative busi­ness events dur­ing the spring months.

The Spring into Ar­madale Fash­ion Show will be at Araluen Botanic Park from 3pm to 5.30pm on Au­gust 11.
