picture lessons...

Friday afternoon saw the Perth Fashion Festival hold an exclusive bloggers photography workshop. As all the Perth bloggers flocked down at the stunning GPO Building to learn some tricks L, Kim, Bon and Chow were on the moon. There they feasted on nachos and pasta and giant bowls of shoestring fries. Only when they had engorged themselves to the uttermost did the four of them stumble down to the invite only event. Safe to say, they were a tad late.

Missing the introduction part of the class was fine by these lasses as once they arrived they dove right into capturing each other through their lenses. Rebellious as they are Chow and L were too busy laughing and mucking around to take any notice of what they were supposed to be doing. Too much fun was had, twirling and stumbling and telling secret jokes.

They didn't really learn anything, of course that was their fault rather then that of their talented teachers.

Once the class braved the warm natural light outside, and once "Chow" (L's naughty influence) had left. L had more attention for the class, below are a few of the images she ensnared. Don't be fooled though sweet readers, most pictures were truly too terrible to share.

All in all L had a ball, but I, with my keen feline intellect, suspect this had something to do with the company. She did leave a bit disappointed that she didn't listen enough, alas with L and her short, short attention span, that is to be expected...

If your into more of this photography class shiz' check out S and T's post over at le fanciulle and or Nikon School who held the event for us. So big ups to Nikon - and as avid readers of this blog will know, we love us some Nikon!

legs dipped in gold...

We thought we'd break up all the runway posts with an outfit for you, below is what I dressed L in for Friday night, a bit more laid back and casual compared to what she wore Saturday, but more on that outfit later....

lisa marjanovich s/s 2011/2012…

The second capsule to grace us with its presence Thursday night was from budding designer Lisa Marjanovich, her nude and neutral colour pallet, her expert draping and the fluidity of her chosen fabrics was amazing. The models swam down the runway, with their chiffon skirts trailing behind like mermaid tails. They're wet look hair only emphasised this beautiful aesthetic - succeeding in creating the illusion of these beautiful ocean girls stepping out of the frothy surf just moments before.

little gracie s/s 2011/2012...

Upon returning to the WA Museum for Designer Capsule #1 the girls fell into a blossom filled field, sweet floral aromas wafted through the air and light bounced off petals and stems. All were stunned by the amazing transformation, and each guest was as bewildered as the next as they stepped gently into the room. L ran around stealing moments of prettiness with her camera right up until the lights dimmed. Once she finally did sit down L found the most ambrosial cupcake awaiting her, and most suitably it took the shape of a peach rose.

The soft 70's tunes started and slowly the models began to flutter down the catwalk, L was hypnotised by soft swish of tulle and the enchanting sorbet colours. Midriffs were bared, pants were flared and went for days and the dresses, oh the dresses - layer, upon layer of cup-cakey, princess-y scrumptiousness. Words just can't do justice to designer Ebony Harding's luscious collection so instead we will besiege you with delectable photos.

Without further ado we present Little Gracie.

yeojin bae s/s 2011/2012...

Yeojin Bae was this weeks first official runway show for this years fashion festival, while light bounced off the heritage listed ornate ceiling of The Western Australian Museums Hackett Hall, the photographers snapped away furiously. Capturing every minute of the night through their lenses and the front row where L and her fellow bloggers was seated buzzed with heady excitement.

However as soon as the lights dimmed and the musical notes grew louder all eyes were on the double arches - where stunning girls filed through one by one emerging onto to the new "L" shaped catwalk. Each ones hair was slicked back into tight low buns and their faces were clean with the bare minimal make up. Coloured bras's we're on show giving the soft and demure dresses and printed jump-suits a wonderful sexy edge.

Legs that went for a million miles were on show, along with delicious reds, magentas, navy and nude. Pintuck detailing, fabric flowers and modest hemlines left the crowd feeling refreshed and relieved with the parisian themed collection.

Below are a small sample of the pictures L captured from the night, when collections are this appetising we find it hard to narrow down the selections and at the end of the production she is always left wondering how it all went so fast. Although one of the plusses of being a blogger is reliving each and every outfit once again when curating these posts for you.

For the first night I dressed L somewhat gothically in all black and mountains and mountains of sliver.

Do stay tuned for much more - next up is the Designer Capsule #1 which we are pleased to say, blew all away.

illuminated...

Last nights night of nights. Eagerly anticipated by all of Perth's elegant fashion flock began when heels and chiffon glided down the black carpet. The stems and suits were ushered into waiting elevators, equally as glamourous as their inhabitants. Stepping gently out onto the 33rd floor the dark night was illuminated by tiny twinkling lights of a sleepy city below. Unbeknown to most down below the Perth Fashion Festival was now to begin.

Live and sensuous jazz flew though the air, meeting ears and creating the perfect mood. Glittery gold champagne was daintily thrust into waiting hands, as the glittering crowd gathered to admire the 360 degree view's. Hypnotised by the landscape most were late to find seats, one and all clambered for the perfect spot, many to be disappointed.

However when the lithe and sparkling models began their flight not one person made a sound. Most stood jaw dropped, breathing somewhat heavily, absorbing the colours, the hem lines, the feathers and the hair.

The luxurious night was perfectly set to the tune of what we hope the rest of this magnificent week will be.
