urban couture two thousand and fourteen industry launch - featuring wanderlust by mekel...

Last week was the 2013 industry launch of Urban Couture, presented by Coveted Events. Guests were treated to a magnificent collection of whimsical works by local fashion illustrator Mekel. Champagne flowed golden and free, as guests wandered and pondered on the beauty of these watercolour masterpieces.

Before the parade began, high heeled stems glided throughout the gallery; catching up with old industry friends, raiding the lolly station and generally having a fantastic time. The mood in the air was electric.

Once the parade began, guest were treated to a showcase of local designers: collections by three up-and-coming WA designers House of Skye, Natalie Rolt and By Emily Lewien.

Unfortunately due to the set up of the catwalk, photographing became quite a difficult task... below are a couple of decent shots I managed to get. However, other then the catwalk difficulties the 2014 Urban Couture Launch was more then a success!

I can't wait for the rest of the events, for anyone else interested we will post the full program too, alternately it can be downloaded from here
