De­sign­ers are on track

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Belinda Cipri­ano

EIGHT WA de­sign­ers will take to the cat­walk as part of Perth Rac­ing’s Privé Fash­ion Plat­form Run­way at As­cot on Oc­to­ber 7.

Ac­ces­sory de­signer Jes­sica Bratich-john­son, along with Jonté De­signs, Only one Ash­ley, Suited for Him, Ete Swimwear, J. Porter Cloth­ing, Reny Kes­tel Millinery and Ta­nia Claire Ac­ces­sories will show­case their spring sum­mer col­lec­tions as styled by Aus­tralian Style In­sti­tute’s Stylist of the Year Ju­velle Behren­dorff.

Bratich-john­son said she was ex­cited to un­veil her lat­est Jes­sica Bratich col­lec­tion and new brand­ing which was yet to be seen on the run­way.

“It’s re­ally ex­cit­ing,” she said.

“My col­lec­tion has a mix of colour, prints and black fea­tur­ing dif­fer­ent fab­rics such as faux fur, leop­ard and then my usual ve­gan leather.

“I’ve re­ally played around with us­ing dif­fer­ent fab­rics this col­lec­tion.”

Bratich-john­son, who also re­cently launched her new chil­dren’s line of hand­bags, said af­ter a suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral event at As­cot last year, team­ing up with Perth Rac­ing made sense.

“This is our sec­ond year at As­cot and we are re­ally ex­cited as it’s is an amaz­ing venue and its be­come a great part­ner­ship be­tween us.

“They are re­ally get­ting be­hind us and sup­port­ing de­sign­ers and in a tough re­tail mar­ket, it’s very im­por­tant.”

Hop­ing it be­comes an an­nual event, the mother-oftwo said the event aimed to pro­vide a VIP ex­pe­ri­ence to guests at an af­ford­able price.

“Guests are not only treated to an amaz­ing run­way but there’s also a two-hour canapés and drink pack­age plus this year guests will be able to buy what they like straight off the run­way and there will also be an af­ter party.” Privé Fash­ion Plat­form Run­way As­cot Race­course 71 Grand­stand Road As­cot
