Watch the Birdy on fash­ion run­ways

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Desmond Eddy

BIRD on a Wire had a suc­cess­ful 2014 with run­ways at Ur­ban Cou­ture and a RAW show­case. The fash­ion la­bel be­gan this year with a bang, re­leas­ing first com­mer­cial col­lec­tion Flour­ish and open­ing emerg­ing WA de­signer pop-up shop Pop­si­cle.

De­signer Charissa Schlink has now re­branded Bird on a Wire, cre­at­ing the new en­tity Cu­ri­ous Birdy but re­tain­ing the heart and soul of the la­bel’s in­tegrity and pas­sion.

Fea­tur­ing fun and quirky fash­ion pieces, Cu­ri­ous Birdy brings the beauty out in ev­ery­day life and Schlink refers to the la­bel as her “girly al­ter ego”.

With in­spi­ra­tion from the or­di­nary, she has cre­ated unique prints that form the foun­da­tion of each col­lec­tion.

“Ev­ery de­tail is im­por­tant in each piece, with tex­ture and trims to bring the gar­ments to life,” Schlink said.

“It is all about cre­at­ing some­thing ex­tra­or­di­nary and ex­cit­ing.”

Schlink grad­u­ated from Poly­tech­nic West in 2013, al­ready hav­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with Aus­tralian la­bels such as Lit­tle Gra­cie, Dys­p­nea and Lover.

She was re­cently pho­tographed for Restyle Class of 2015 for Tel­stra Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val and will fea­ture in the fes­ti­val’s WA De­signer Run­way #2 along­side 12 of WA’s bril­liant emerg­ing de­sign­ers.

WA De­signer Run­way #2 is at Fash­ion Para­mount River­side Fore­court, Perth Con­cert Hall at 7pm on Satur­day, Septem­ber 19.

Cu­ri­ous Birdy is stocked at Com­mon Ground and Merge.
