Tribute paid to ‘icons’ of fashion
WA Aids Council fundraiser Styleaid has attracted the likes of Gemma Ward, Nicole Trunfio, Amy Finlayson, Tom Bull and Emma Booth on to its catwalk over the past 20 years.
But supporters, sponsors and organisers of the event know that people like Mark Reid, Aly May and Annette Hasluck, who are inaugural committee members, are the real stars.
The trio was touched when they were referred to as the “icons” at the launch of the 20th and final Styleaid Icon at La Vie champagne lounge at Crown Perth recently.
Over its history, the event has raised more than $1.5 million, hosted 10,790 guests, involved 1450 models and been coordinated by 4690 volunteers.
This year’s event is to be held on Friday, August 4.
