Hits and Misses from 2014 Telstra Perth Fashion Festival’s Opening Night

Last night the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival 2014 kicked off with its opening night runway show, dubbed Beyond Imagination, at Perth Town Hall before 600 guests.

All the designers for the show, including Filipino couturier Michael Cinco, Indonesian designer Sebastian Gunawan, and Perth-based label ae’lkemi, impressed, but the guests, like Dannii Minogue, Zanita Whittington and Kate Waterhouse, delivered some hit and misses while dressed in Australian designs.

Fashion blogger Kate arrived rocking a strapless By Johnny midi dress with killer black pumps, alongside Zanita in a red feather top and leather shorts by Aurelio Costarella. Keeping up the quirky, Zanita also opted for eye-laden clutch by Poppy Lissman, a tough denim jacket plus lavender clog-style slip-ons, which somehow worked a treat. The pair were in attendance ahead of the October 15th launch of their new documentary style show Fashion Bloggers.

The X Factor judge Dannii had an interesting getup which included a pink Aurelio Costarella dress and Logan jewellery. We hear it’s pretty warm over in Perth and the cosiness of fur is unnecessary, but Dannii seemed to think the throw-over was a good fit for the show. Even if Dannii’s wardrobe choice was a bit of a fail in our books, we’re sure she was chuffed that drag queen Katya Kokov wore a dress from her Dannii Minogue Petites for Target range.
