WA trio shine on cat­walk

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Des­mond Eddy

BRUUG, House of Skye and Natalie Rolt demon­strated why lo­cal de­sign­ers are not to be taken lightly dur­ing WA De­signer Cap­sule at Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val last month.

The all-star run­way fea­tured Bruug in­tro­duc­ing Luxe basics, House of Sky rock­ing bo­hemian style and Natalie Rolt eas­ing into relaxed el­e­gance.

Perth-based de­signer Natasha Butler for Bruug drew inspiration for her spring-sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion from the colour and vi­brancy of cen­tral Mexico town Gua­na­ju­ato.

The chic and so­phis­ti­cated range fo­cuses on flat­ter­ing cuts and clean lines.

This spring-sum­mer, Butler un­cov­ered the in­ner imag­i­na­tion of the Bruug girl, the vary­ing shades of her per­son­al­ity, and her lim­it­less search for fun by en­thralling the au­di­ence with bold colours, del­i­cate tex­tured fab­rics, a flir­ta­tious edge and lust for life.

WA de­signer Natalie Rolt showed tech­niques of gar­ment con­struc­tion us­ing lux­u­ri­ous fab­rics, prints and bold colours, com­ple­ment­ing the fe­male physique.

Rolt stepped into a white oa­sis, giv­ing clar­ity and strength with her Sta­tus col­lec­tion.

Her range of all-white tex­tures and fab­rics not only made a state­ment, but show­cased a blank can­vas to prospec­tive clients.

Natasha Hinett, with a love of bo­hemian fash­ion, cre­ated the ex­quis­ite la­bel House of Skye.

Draw­ing on style icons present dur­ing the 1960s and 1970s, and in­spired by vin­tage fab­rics with pat­terns and tex­tures, Hinett pro­duced her own tex­tile prints and hand-dyed fab­rics to pro­duce glam­orous, easyto-wear gar­ments.

Her spring col­lec­tion, Is­land Fever, trans­ported the au­di­ence to a trop­i­cal is­land while cap­tur­ing colours of the sea, sun and trop­i­cal fauna in its beau­ti­ful prints.

The col­lec­tion con­sists of a strong Span­ish in­flu­ence with fem­i­nine frills and bo­hemian sig­na­ture looks, soft flow­ing sil­hou­ettes, em­broi­dered de­tail and a touch of cro­chet.
