During the week, the Lakeside Joondalup shopping centre hosted the Urban Couture Graduate Capsule Showcase, an event showcasing collections from the best upcoming Perth fashion and design graduates of the year. While daylight dimmed to night, the Joondalup rooftop car park was transformed into an outdoor runway as the white chairs filled up with fashion lovers, photographers, friends and family, as well as a few intrigued onlookers walking through the carpark.
The eight designers showcased through the evening were Rosemaree White, Sheona Cowden, Jessica Moro, San Cora, Vidhi Dudhia, Jayde Christie, S&S by Shreeja & Shweta and Bird on a Wire, in addition to a VIP pre-showcase of designer Jaime Lee.
Our favourite picks for the evening included Rosemaree White‘s design, comprising of striking lingerie and dresses made from a variety of tulle, feathers and beautiful embroideries, all meticulously detailed, and Jessica Moro’s designs reminiscient of classic French romance with a contemporary twist. A stand out piece in the showcase was the Jessica Moro oversized black sun hat; despite the wind blowing it off the model mid-runway.
With many of the designers already starting up campaigns and stockists, we are sure to see more of their faces in the coming year, and are looking forward to it!
