Fremantle Fashion Collective is a runway show that took place this fall in Fremantle, Australia. A suburb of Perth, Fremantle is incredibly creative and artsy in design mirroring that of a city much like Austin. 'The Dreamers' runway took place at the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery in the heart of Fremantle.
I took first row to learn a little more about what Fremantle had to offer and become acquainted with their area designers. Here is a little sneak peek to the invite only runway in Fremantle - little did they know I'd be bringing along my readers as guests.
Fremantle's designers took their place on the runway including designers Megan Salmon, Days of Yore, Sheree Dornan, Cocoon, The Siam Lady, Velvet Sushi and Pekho. Area artist Leure put on an amazing show located alongside the runway - her music fit the imagery and fashion incredibly well, and her music was absolutely amazing.
Fashion in the show included earthy, comfortable apparel that was absolutely perfect for all of the recreational and outdoors activities in Perth. The fashions would fit Texas incredibly well due to lightweight and comfortable fabrics presented by label, Pekho.
Megan Salmon had to be one of my favorites presented at this runway. The skirts she presented in the newest collection were divine. Taking on an ombre affect in dark charcoals and grays, this skirt can absolutely be paired with any existing solid staple pieces in your wardrobe - the perfect piece to dress up any solid blouse to a cocktail party. Her line exhibits contemporary romanticism playing with different textures and combinations of tone on tone color schemes.
All designers are located in the Fremantle area either showcasing their lines in several boutiques or housing their line in their label's main store. These designers are not to be missed and are not carried in Texas but can be found online for an authentic Australian experience.
