of Perth Fashion Festival 2013 was a VIP runway show marking the 15th Anniversary of WA's biggest and best annual fashion event.
In celebration of the Festival's crystal anniversary the opening show, held at the Western Australian Museum, showcased looks from six of the states most noted homegrown designers.
Designers, Perthonalities and sponsors alike swanned around the Museum Lobby - not that the average person would know it was the site for one of Perth's biggest fashion events of the year, with the imposing ancient Egyptian imagery from the Museum's current hero exhibition overwhelming the building entrance.
One Fell Swoop opened the show, evoking warm memories of last year's opening event also headlined by the label
drapery of the divine variety has always been signature to this design duo
then Zhivago cut a clear contrast
with their signature shoulder pads and striking silhouettes
Morrison brought us Summer with their sublime aqua print
and in everything from drop-waisted dresses to matching suit sets there's an option for every wardrobe need
Empire Rose got in on the crystal love
and we got in on the love for Empire Rose...
If you know me at all, you'll know Flannel has always been a favourite
and this show was no exception. I suppose it helps they had one of my favourite models, Caris Tiivel, flaunting their wares
And never, ever, one to be outdone Ruth Tardyvas brought her A-game
With more than one jaw-dropping look walking down the runway
