Hillarys designer with new collection
EIGHT WA designers will take to the catwalk as part of Perth Racing’s Prive Fashion Platform Runway at Ascot on October 7.
Hillarys accessory designer Jessica Bratich-Johnson, along with Jonte Designs, Only one Ashley, Suited for Him, Ete Swimwear, J. Porter Clothing, Reny Kestel Millinery and Tania Claire Accessories will showcase their spring summer collections as styled by Australian Style Institute Stylist of the Year Juvelle Behrendorff.
Bratich-Johnson said she was excited to unveil her latest Jessica Bratich collection and new branding, which was yet to be seen on the runway.
“It’s really exciting,” she said.
“My collection has a mix of colour, prints and black featuring different fabrics such as faux fur, leopard and then my usual vegan leather.
“I’ve really played around with using different fabrics in this collection.”
Bratich-Johnson, who also recently launched her new children’s line of handbags, said after a successful inaugural event at Ascot last year, teaming up with Perth Racing made sense.
“This is our second year at Ascot and we are really excited as it’s is an amazing venue and its become a great partnership between us,” she said.
“They are really getting behind us and supporting designers in what is a tough retail market.”
