Opt for Restyle
ONE of my favourite Perth Fashion Festival events is back with a twist for 2015.
This year Restyle features returns with 20 WA fashion creatives, photographers, artists, bloggers, florists, stylists and designers who have collectively come together to celebrate all that is op shopping.
The ‘Class of 2015’ as they have been affectionately crowned, will show how to workshop finds into your wardrobe while sharing their looks on social media platforms Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with #Restyle2015.
Categorised in themes, each creative has put themself in the spotlight to reinvent their looks as only they can do from tribal, denim, polka dot and mixed prints to metallic, glam, ’90s, floral, fringe and black on black.
But more importantly they are encouraging people to donate back to the charities in a true recycling gesture, which this year include Anglicare WA, Australian Red Cross, Good Sammy, RSPCA WA, Salvos Stores, Save the Children and Vinnies.
The event will culminate in the Restyle Runway during PFF at Fashion Centre, Forrest Place on Friday, September 18 at 10am and Sunday, September 20 at 11am.
PFF founder and director Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan said Restyle was the perfect platform to encourage creativity in fashion while supporting local charity organisations.
“Contrary to popular belief, great style doesn’t always come with a hefty price tag,” she said.
“There are so many hidden treasures at our local op shops and we’re excited to get Perth fashionistas out there trying new things with the daily style prompts, all while supporting a good cause.”
