Opt for Restyle

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

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.”
