SHOWS: Restyle Runway, Forrest Chase, Brookfield Place
ADDRESS: Fashion Central, Forrest Place
WHEN: Friday, 19 September 2014
In its 16th year, Telstra Perth Fashion Festival (TPFF) has firmly established itself as one of Australia’s most exciting and dynamic fashion events, through its inspirational and innovative calendar and local talent on show.
In its first day at Fashion Central for TPFF 2014 and the public got a chance to see the sustainable vintage and upcycling fashion project Restyle runway while Perth city retailers, Forrest Chase and Brookfield Place showcased their latest Spring Summer 2014 collections to inspire your new season wardrobe!
Restyle Runway show proved that it is possible to look fabulous even on a shoe-string budget. Restyle Photo-a-Day challenged people to wear only op-shop clothes for a month and then hit social media to prove that age doesn’t matter when it comes to dressing well! The bloggers showed us that you don’t need to shop at luxury stores to be on-trend – all it takes is a little imagination and a keen eye!
Forrest Chase retailers gave the public a taste of what to expect in stores for Spring Summer 2014. The catwalk definitely gave us some inspiration to head into your favourite retailer such as Withcery, Nine West, Portmans and many more to purchase the fresh summer look you just had your eye on.
Brookfield Place gave us a glimpse into trendsetting luxury pieces of sleek menswear and timeless womenswear, in their latest Spring Summer 2014 collections. We got to see some of Perth’s fashion favourites such as Montblanc, Bale Daniel Hechter, Anna Thomas and more on the wonderfully styled models.
