Stars add to fes­ti­val magic

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

THERE were uni­corns, rain­bows, A-list celebri­ties, lunches, brunches and, of course, fash­ion.

It was the 17th an­nual Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val and while there were dozens of shows through­out the week, Belinda Cipri­ano has cho­sen her high­lights. OPEN­ING NIGHT:

High-end bou­tique Dilet­tante opened this year’s Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val, show­cas­ing de­sign­ers 33 Po­ets, Toni Mat­icevski and Yang Li on the run­way.

Mat­icevski, the star of the show, show­cased his latest spring/sum­mer 15/16 col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing fem­i­nine sil­hou­ettes and beau­ti­ful con­struc­tion in crisp white and me­tal­lic hues. MYER LUNCH:

Al­ways a sell-out, this year’s lunch at As­cot Mem­ber’s Lounge fea­tured a de­li­cious two-course lunch ac­com­pa­nied by Aus­tralian wines.

Myer am­bas­sador Rachael Finch took to the run­way, tak­ing over from fes­ti­val heart­throb Kris Smith, wear­ing Alex Perry, Yeo­jin Bae, and Perth de­sign­ers Mor­ri­son and Aure­lio Costarella. JAIME LEE:

De­signer to the stars Jaime Lee Ma­jor showed off her Lightyears Col­lec­tion in true Jaime Lee form, with real-life Bar­bies, uni­corns, a ro­bot disc jockey and a shower of con­fetti. TAR­GET RUN­WAY:

The pop­u­lar free run­way show fea­tured Jes­sica Mauboy in a cat­walk ap­pear­ance in Danni Minogue for Tar­get, as well as a per­for­mance by the pop princess. WHEELS AND DOLL­BABY

The clos­ing show of the fes­ti­val did not dis­ap­point.

An en­trance by bur­lesque queen Dita Von Teese en­ticed the au­di­ence, with a sul­try walk down the run­way in­tro­duc­ing the la­bel’s latest col­lec­tion.

Von Teese and mod­els of ev­ery shape and size sashayed down the cat­walk in the la­bel’s sig­na­ture style, which in­cluded pen­cil skirts, cinched cardi­gans and Jes­sica Rab­bit-style gowns.
