I have to say, Lady Gaga would feel very much at home in a lot of the costumes displayed by Perth designer Celene Bridge (claw hats, paw gloves, animal-teeth & skull tiaras) and the lingerie looking outfits unveiled by Laura Anderson & it was certainly fun to watch these collections unfold on the runway. However, I tip my hat to Alex Perry whose collection definitely showed why he has earned the title of Australia’s most glamorous designer. Every single gown had its own “WOW!” factor which made it terribly difficult for us to pick a favorite.

Loved the colors and themes displayed on the runway by the folks at White Suede, especially the gold, red and black interplay on most of their ensembles. And of course we all know that opaque stockings are being re-invented in every way shape and form to ensure that this flattering piece of underwear stays a staple in every woman’s closet. Totally fancied the elegant yet edgy looks from the Wayne Cooper collection, especially one of my very favorite looks as seen above with (the little black dress that could). Other great looks included the little black dresses by Livia Arena paired with strappy ankle length suede boots, shiny sleeveless jumpsuits from the House of Baulch and  just like we announced last week and as showcased in almost every fashion week globally so far, sequins are here to stay thank you Alexi Freeman for not only featuring more sassy sequins but also bringing back electric and cobalt blue.
