StyleAid 2013

StyleAid 1

By Michael Walton.

Perth gathered for its red carpet night of nights with the premier black tie charity event; StyleAid.

Starting its 16th year with a designer scandal; within 24 hours of the event starting design duo Zhivago had their hummer stolen with the entire collection in tow. Zhivago managed to pull together a phenomenal collection closing the StyleAid runway.

The evening saw Perth’s fashion forward frock up to support the annual WA Aids council event, heading into its 16th year. The event alone has raised over $1,000,000 in its previous 15 years, these funds have been greatly put to use in battling HIV & AIDS. It also has provided support & health benefits to those individuals who have been diagnosed.

This year saw Mark Reid returning as media & WAAC ambassador. Mark ensured the event was a sell out & the StyleAid team with hundreds of volunteers supporting the cause ensured the night was a success. Designers including Alvin Fernandez of Aelkemi & Shane Newton of Zsadar saved the collections to show exclusively at StyleAid. Fernandez known for dressing the likes of Delta Goodrem & Samantha Jade said he was excited to show a collection a little darker than previous years. The collection didn’t disappoint being one of the stand outs of the night.

Zsadar’s collection showcased a new direction for the brand after a return from Paris; the collection showcased beautifully tailored silk suits contrasted with skateboards in matching prints for a more urban streetwear look.

Flannel’s Kristy Lawrence wowed crowds by not only showcasing her soft fabrics after opening stores in LA & dressing celebrities like Ke$ha but also introduced the menswear collection just before the new mens boutique opened.

From Aurelio Costarella opening the show with masks by milliner Reny Kestel to Zhivago’s urban closing. The night was a success by ending with a stunning performance by The West Australian Ballet in costumes designed by a selected group of design students.
