If the shoes fit . . .

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

MC Claudia Ber­torello-Kell wore an Aure­lio Costarella break­fast suit and di­rec­tor Mariella Har­vey-Han­ra­han was dressed by Mor­ri­son and Wil­low but it was politi­cian Alyssa Hay­den who stole the show at the 2015 Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val Pro­gram Launch last week.

The East Metropoli­tan Re­gion MLC, who was rep­re­sent­ing Premier Colin Bar­nett, was ap­plauded for her choice of footwear.

“They must be the best shoes in Par­lia­ment, we chal­lenge the Premier,” Ms Ber­torello- Kell said.

Ms Har­vey-Han­ra­han said the 17th pro­gram show­cased Perth as the best-dressed city with its fu­sion of fash­ion, art and tech­nol­ogy.

She said pho­tog­ra­pher Penny Lane’s im­ages of model Tiah Eck­hardt around the city cap­tured the re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of Perth.

Tel­stra, on board for a sec­ond year, also used the pro­gram launch to re­lease its app that lists all the events, al­lows peo­ple to cre­ate their own PFF cal­en­dar and pro­vides de­tails on fea­tured de­sign­ers.

For­mer MLC stu­dent, and ob­stet­rics and gy­nae­col­ogy clin­i­cian Diane Davies, told the break­fast au­di­ence it had been 50 years since she grad­u­ated – “one hus­band, five chil­dren and seven grand­chil­dren later”.

In­ter­est­ingly, Dr Davies was asked why she wasn’t a pre­fect dur­ing her two years at MLC dur­ing an in­ter­view for a job as the di­rec­tor of med­i­cal ser­vices at Alice Springs Hos­pi­tal.

Dr Davies had had two chil­dren by the time she grad­u­ated from med­i­cal school af­ter six years.

“Ev­ery­one cel­e­brated, but I had the mumps cour­tesy of my son,” the 2014 WA Women’s Hall of Fame in­ductee said.

In her down­time, Dr Davies spends time at her fam­ily’s vine­yard down south and en­joys sewing.
