Rac­ing’s fashion run­way

Stirling Times - - News - Belinda Cipri­ano

EIGHT WA de­sign­ers will take to the cat­walk as part of Perth Rac­ing’s Prive Fashion Plat­form Run­way at As­cot on Oc­to­ber 7.

Bal­catta de­signer Jonte Pike with Jes­sica BratichJohn­son Hil­larys, Only one Ash­ley, Suited for Him, Ete Swimwear, J. Porter Cloth­ing, Reny Kes­tel Millinery and Tania Claire Ac­ces­sories will show­case their spring sum­mer col­lec­tions, styled by Aus­tralian Style In­sti­tute Stylist of the Year Ju­velle Behren­dorff.

Pike said she was ex­cited to show off her lat­est fem­i­nine yet edgy col­lec­tion ‘For­get Me Not’ on the night.

“It’s a ro­man­tic amal­ga­ma­tion of fem­i­nine cel­e­bra­tion with street-style high­lights,” she said.

“A mod­ern, edgy out­look for its wearer, the col­lec­tion plays on jux­ta­pos­ing tex­tiles and em­pha­sises fem­i­nine sil­hou­ettes. There is a strong denim blue sen­ti­ment in­spired by the ‘For­get Me Not’ flower, paired with monochro­matic de­signs for a time­less aura.”

Pike, who will take part in the Perth Fashion Fes­ti­val’s WA De­signer Capsule to­mor­row night, said af­ter a suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral event at As­cot last year, part­ner­ing with Perth Rac­ing was log­i­cal.

“Perth Rac­ing has been very sup­port­ive to the fashion sec­tor and af­ter be­ing ap­proached to bring to­gether a fashion event in 2016 it has evolved to a promis­ing and ex­cit­ing part­ner­ship,” she said.

“It would be amaz­ing to have this event run an­nu­ally.

“It is won­der­ful to of­fer such a unique ex­pe­ri­ence to our cus­tomers, which in­cludes a night out filled with fashion for both males and fe­males and the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase gar­ments straight from the run­way.”
