What I Wore Style File: Telstra Perth Fashion Festival 2015

Fashion is about expressing yourself and having fun and there is no better place to do just that than at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. And I’ll be honest, at TPFF anything goes! Literally anything!

When it comes to Fashion Festival I like to dress in a way that is unexpected (formal skirt & sneakers? Done!) Or in a way that draws inspiration from the designer on show that night. Because I am obsessed with “street style” (anyone else?) and I love knowing how people put their style together and why, I wanted to show my looks for each day of TPFF and my own inspiration behind each look – I have also included where you can get the look too (because I’m helpful like that!)

Opening Night: Dilettante

I took inspiration from my blog’s name – a Lagerfeld (designer for Chanel) tee and some metallic kicks. This outfit was about looking good (of course) and comfort since I was spending the opening night show in the media pit sitting on the floor. Even though I may have sat on the floor always act like someone who belongs on the FROW by ever so casually throwing a vintage denim jacket over your shoulders.

Day 2: WA Designer Runway 1

The WA Designer Runway is all about celebrating local fashion and designers so what better night to celebrate and wear local designs from Ethel and Leo – including matching clutch!

Day 3: Jaime Lee

If you have Jaime Lee’s designs before you would be aware that sparkle is synonymous with the designer. To play along with this I chose a metallic shirt and shoes. A full A-line skirt kept the look dressy while allowing me to sit cross-legged on the floor of the media pit in comfort.

Day 5: WA Designer Runway 2 / Akira

Another WA runway called for more local fashion (Ethel and Leo of course!) I teamed the crochet dress with a statement jacket and clutch as a nod to Akira’s colourful couture designs.

Closing Night: Steph Audino & Ae’kemi

Watching the show in the media pit calls for black clothing but I like colour (obviously) so this is my “version” of black. In keeping with the evening wear “theme” I chose a slinky black dress but added a knitted bomber and Nike high tops give the whole look a sports luxe vibe (plus the Nike’s allowed for comfort when sitting on the floor taking photos of the beautiful couture gowns).
