Perth Fashion Festival 2011

Recently, I’ve got the chance to partake in the Perth Fashion Festival as a Style Envoy! I’ve been wanting to join since last year but it was too late for me to sign up last year so I didn’t waste a minute of time when I got to know the registration for volunteers are open! As I trembled my way through the interview, I was lucky to be picked out as the Back-Of-House Dresser for a few shows so it was absolutely great fun for the whole week!

For my first night, I was scheduled to work for WA Designers and Ae’lkemi shows. Being my very first time and apparently the biggest show so far for Perth Fashion Festival Week, I could literally pee in my pants as I’m so worried that I’ll mess up and not being able to get the models out in time!! True to my expectation, I did screw up for one second when the dress was put on the other way round! Mind you, they were REALLYYY tall as well! :???: However, as I didn’t know pictures were allowed backstage, I only managed to take pictures on my second and third day shift.

I’d say the best experience for me was Hyogu Banshu where 6 designers were being sent all the way to Japan to manufacture their own fabrics and the collections from each of them was to die for! My favourite was the Origami dress! Thankfully, my model for that night was the friendliest I’ve met and the designer was awfully nice to us as well!

Every time before the show starts, I’ll get very jitty and nervous because trust me, backstage is as intense as everyone perceives. On normal days, girls take at least 10 minutes to get ready but we have to dress this models in one COMPLICATED outfit within 2 minutes most. All in all, it was definitely a great peek into the fashion industry. :mrgreen:

PS: I’m dying for those pair of ankle boots in the last picture!!! :evil: :evil:
