Red car­pet on race day

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

THIS year’s Perth Rac­ing Prive Fash­ion Plat­form has been com­bined with the launch of As­cot Rac­ing Car­ni­val on Oc­to­ber 13.

Guests will in­dulge in a two-hour canapé and bev­er­age pack­age with an af­ter party fol­low­ing the main event, a run­way show­cas­ing lo­cal de­sign­ers in­clud­ing Jes­sica Bratich, Mitch John­son by Kinn Ap­parel , Reign the La­bel , Brooke Da Cruz, Ta­nia Claire Aus­tralia (jew­ellery), Anita Carr La­bel (head­wear) and Elle et Lui (shoes).

The As­cot Race­course event will also fea­ture de­signs by Jonte Pike as her la­bel re­veals the new Cu­ra­tor Col­lec­tion, switch­ing fo­cus from ready to wear to spe­cial oc­ca­sion, race wear, evening and bridal.

“My spe­cial oc­ca­sion wear is very pop­u­lar and our cus­tomers are look­ing for some­thing unique and beau­ti­fully made,” Pike said.

“There are plenty of fast fash­ion pieces out there, so we want to cre­ate unique pieces that can be worn both dur­ing the day, to the races or in the evening and then more glam­orous pieces that can be worn to a spe­cial event or wed­ding pieces that are both edgy but time­less.”

Pike said her re­sort bridal col­lec­tion Jonté Plat­inum would be launched this sum­mer and em­bod­ied fem­i­nin­ity, edgi­ness and a hint of an eclec­tic feel.

“Get­ting mar­ried in Oc­to­ber 2017 and cre­at­ing all the gowns for this oc­ca­sion ig­nited a pas­sion for de­sign­ing and cre­at­ing re­sort wed­ding gowns and brides­maid dresses,” she said.

“Af­ter nu­mer­ous emails about cre­at­ing bridal gowns based on my evening wear de­signs, I de­cided to cre­ate a bridal line.”

Not all de­signs have to be worn as bridal gowns.

“I am fo­cus­ing on cre­at­ing styles that could be worn mul­ti­pur­pose across both spe­cial oc­ca­sions and bridal, depend­ing on the wear­ers’ de­sire,” Pike said.

This will be the third year for Jonte De­signs to fea­ture at Privé Fash­ion Plat­form where the fash­ion de­signer said she loved the “ev­ery­one’s a VIP vibe”.
