Perth Fashion Festival 2012: Giving Back is the New Black

After a week of incredible fashion, air kisses, gift bags, champagne and way too much fun, we bid Perth Fashion Festival 2012 goodbye with a VIP closing party, Giving Back is the New Black at beautiful Government House.

With the super talented Zhivago girls. I love that Lydia (far right) is rocking Zhivago at 5 months pregnant. Respect!

Canapes, wine and champagne abounded, then guests were ushered upstairs for a spectacular show of black evening dresses all made especially for the evening by designers like Morrison, Ange Lang, Poppy Lissiman, Ae’lkemi, Zhivago, Breathless, Little Gracie and Ellery.

Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi made a heartfelt speech thanking everyone for their contribution and support for Perth Fashion Festival 2012.  The Governors wife Tonya McCusker then took the stage and mentioned that although Ae’lkemi was one of her favourite designers, their lace nude dress wouldn’t be appropriate for the Governors wife to wear.

Guests were then surprised with a parade of sensationally colourful creations that had been showcased throughout the week.

And so we bid adieu to the week that was Perth Fashion Festival 2012.  What really stood out for me was the amazing support, creativity and passion not only for fashion and style but for all of the exciting things that are happening here in Perth and WA.  We need to continue to nurture and support all of our amazing artists, designers, bloggers and small businesses that are flying the flag for ‘Brand WA.’

And now it’s time for me to swap my stilettos, gowns and champagne for ballet flats, jeans and babycino’s.

Until next year fashionistas.  It’s been a blast.

  1. I’ve been eying off that Zhivago gown but I just DO NOT have the legs for it (unlike you, skinny minny!). You’ve looked fabulous at every single event Amy – not that I’m surprised! So sad that PFF is over 😦 xx

    • It is a stunning gown, and to be honest I don’t really have the legs for it either.. that’s why I’m crossing them in the photo!! I’m sad too – it was a blast. Next year you have to come and play. A xx

  2. What great coverage of Perth Fashion Festival 2012 Amy! The highlight of PFF this year? The Student Runway featuring some incredible emerging WA talent and, as always, Garth Cook’s minimalist high end designs.
