WA trio shine on catwalk
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.
