On May 29th, Fremantle’s famous Raw Kitchen was transformed into a fashion hub as over 100 PR students, models and media sold out the Public Relations Students Chapter “PR in Fashion” event. Hosted annually by the PRSC, a member of the Curtin University Student Guild, the event connects those interested in PR and fashion careers with those who have established such.

Bejeweled and shining in gold, the garments illuminated the runway with elegance and an undertone of attitude. International model Ayor Chuot spoke shortly about her experiences growing up in Sudan and how they shaped how she views her life now and how “I never thought I’d be gracing 10 pages of Marie Claire”, reminding us all to be who you are.
Designs by Vege Threads, an eco friendly fashion brand from Adelaide, took to the runway to remind the audience about the importance of being sustainable. COR.D (Cordelia Gibbs) “Behind the Front Line” collection appeared at this show and reminded us how much we love her work. The unique style and tailoring of Gibbs’ work stuns us every time we see it.
