Perth Fashion Festival VIP Opening Night

As I said in my last post, I've been invited over to Perth as a VIP guest of the Perth Fashion Festival to bring Perth fashion to the rest of Australia. Day one of the festival saw Perth's number one fashion star Aurelio Costarella open the festival with a beautiful gala launch and runway show at the C Restaurant, a revolving restaurant in the heart of Perth with amazing views.

 It was a beautiful homecoming for Perthite Aurelio Costarella as he hasn't shown his collection to a local crowd for nearly five years, instead showing in Sydney or Melbourne. The crowd were very appreciative of him gracing them with his majestic gowns and cocktail dresses, it was a very glamourous affair.

Intricate detailing is key to a Aurelio Costarella gown. Feathers it seems are the next big thing as a few Perth designers have been using them.

The location was the perfect backdrop for the stunning dresses.

The invitation said to dress evening so I pulled out all the stops and donned this beautiful City Chic gown which constantly received compliments all night long. I was very excited to be so dressed up as I never get the chance to gown up and be elegant and glamourous, I felt like a princess.
