Race to Chase for free fes­ti­val events

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Des­mond Eddy

FOR­REST CHASE has been trans­formed this week to be the hub of free Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val events un­til Septem­ber 25.

The Wil­liam Street Col­lec­tive will show­case its wares of eclec­tic hip and hap­pen­ing on-trend men's and women's fash­ion from the North­bridge re­tail strip in a free run­way show on Friday, Septem­ber 23 at 11am.

Fash­ion lovers can ex­pect to see Ol­lie & Sons, The Bronze Snake Shop, Fi & Co, Periscope and Merge Cloth­ing.

Ol­lie & Sons has a strong pas­sion for streetwear, stock­ing la­bels for both guys and girls who are con­fi­dent in their style.

The Bronze Snake is for those who ap­pre­ci­ate in­di­vid­u­al­ity, cut­ting a lim­ited amount of pieces to en­sure the 'clone' ef­fect doesn't hap­pen on the street.

Fi & Co has new and vin­tage cloth­ing, with ev­ery­thing from shoes, hats and belts, to vin­tage books, an­tique bot­tles, vin­tage chairs, tea, ce­ramic wares, and jew­ellery.

Periscope has gone from strength to strength since mov­ing to Wil­liam Street in 2012, de­liv­er­ing an im­pres­sive mix of Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional fash­ion de­sign­ers.

Owner Shan­tha Cokis is drawn to cloth­ing that re­flects qual­ity and in­di­vid­u­al­ity, and se­lects la­bels which are both in­spir­ing and wear­able with a mod­ern, time­less aes­thetic.

Merge is head­ing into its 17th year and owner Lisa Chau has seen many changes while run­ning her col­lec­tive of ta­lent base WA de­sign­ers. The love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for au­then­tic lo­cal brands in­creases all the time.
