Photo fin­ish for fes­ti­val

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - Desmond Eddy

THE Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val will fin­ish on great fanfare at As­cot Race­course on Sun­day, Septem­ber 20, with Wheels and Doll­baby, Ae’lkemi and Steph Audino.

Ae’lkemi and Steph Audino will fea­ture first at 7pm in a com­bined capsule run­way show with an el­e­gant ex­trav­a­ganza.

De­signer Alvin Fer­nan­dez from Ae’lkemi will show­case his new col­lec­tion Queens of the Fron­tier, in­flu­enced by both Hierony­mus Bosch's paint­ing Gar­den of Earthly De­lights and the iconic 1983 film Scar­face.

The deca­dent pal­ette of marsala, nude, black and gold hints at the light ver­sus dark, good ver­sus evil re­li­gious un­der­tones of Bosch's mas­ter­piece, while the slinky ’70s fab­ric of jer­seys, se­quins and hand-beaded lace pays trib­ute to Scar­face’s inim­itable Ms Han­cock.

Audino, who this time last year was at New York Fash­ion Week, is back home with her ro­man­tic tones and beau­ti­ful hem­lines to suit any Cannes Film Fes­ti­val or Academy Awards red car­pet.

Me­lanie Green­smith will launch her spring sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion at 9.30pm with in­ter­na­tional bur­lesque star, de­signer and model Dita Von Teese on the run­way wear­ing the la­bels sig­na­ture 1930s style of sex and glam­our.

Flo­ral, gold tas­sels and ori­en­tal in­spi­ra­tions are set to fea­ture heav­ily on the printed satin cock­tail hour pieces, knitwear and cat­suits.
