Di­ver­sity in fash­ion

Melville Times - - News -

GAR­DEN City is plan­ning one of the most di­verse cat­walk shows ever seen in Perth as part of its Au­tumn Win­ter Shop­ping Party and Run­way Show on March 30.

Fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of New York Fash­ion Week, Gar­den City mar­ket­ing man­ager Clare Ri­ley said the cen­tre planned to mir­ror the va­ri­ety of its shop­pers.

“We want to rep­re­sent all the faces, shapes, sizes and walks of life of the women who wear our cloth­ing,” she said. “As so­ci­ety evolves, so does fash­ion and we want to re­spond to this in a way that is in­clu­sive to all women.”

Kenyan-born Deel Ojulu, who now lives in Mt Pleas­ant, is one of the mod­els pre­par­ing to walk the run­way.

“I’ve been mod­el­ling for around four years; it all started when I was on my way home from the city for a quick shop af­ter school and some­one tapped me on the shoul­der at a traf­fic light cross­ing,” she said.

That some­one was Vivien’s model scout Chris­tine Fox and the of­fer of a con­tract fol­lowed soon af­ter.

“I re­ally en­joy the fast-paced at­mos­phere of be­ing back­stage at a show or a shoot and all of the peo­ple I’ve met and friends I’ve made from mod­el­ling,” Ms Ojulu said.

The run­way shows take place at 1pm and 6.30pm and will show­case more than 80 new-sea­son looks fea­tur­ing clothes avail­able at Gar­den City. For more, visit www.gar­dencity.com.au/home.
