The Western Australian Graduate and Emerging Designer Showcase gives emerging fashion designers a chance to showcase their collections
Urban Couture has become a highlight of the Perth fashion calendar. Now entering its seventh year, the annual fashion program supports the Western Australian Fashion Industry and encourages fashion designers, photographers, textile artists and other creative people to gather in the northern suburbs of Perth.
Urban Couture is a celebration of West Australian fashion and culture and inspires to connect designers and retailers with shoppers. Urban Couture can be a platform for students and emerging designers to showcase their collections and get experience in the industry. In 2017, the program will explore the relationship between garment and the body and highlight local and national trends and the cultural significance and practice of fashion design.
The Western Australia Graduate and Emerging Designer Showcase will be held on Wednesday the 22th of March from 7.30pm to 8.30pm at Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City as part of the Urban Couture fashion experience. The Graduate and Emerging Designer Showcase is a chance for the next generation of West Australian fashion designers to showcase their collections on the Urban Couture runway. Ten design graduates will be handpicked from design institutions and universities from across Western Australia to participate in the event.
The ten designers chosen to take part in the showcase this year are:
