Fashions of the day
The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival is one of Australia's premier fashion events. It now has an international reputation for encouraging some of Australia's most popular creative designers, and putting Western Australian designers on a global stage.
Unique fashions at this Festival
This year, the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival will celebrate all things fashion from the past, present and future. This Fashion Festival is an opportunity for Telstra to bring together and connect the many different parts of various businesses to promote and outline some of the incredible talents of Perth's fashion industry to the world.
Up and coming fashion designers
Each year this Festival seems to get bigger, better and more exciting than ever before as they share the same vision of creating a "brilliantly connected future for everyone to enjoy". The 2018 festival represents a coming of age for TPFF, which coincides with an exciting time for the wider Perth city. This will be a world-class program of cultural events that is fashion forward and all-inclusive.
The 2018 Festival program celebrates 20 years and celebrates where it is today. It will also provide a glimpse of what is to come in the future, with the fresh talent of New Generation and Future Runway designers reflective of this.
If you love keeping up to date with fashions, or if you just enjoy looking at fashions, then this festival is a great place to go.
Beautiful designs on the catwalk
Optus Stadium and The Burswood Peninsula will be the new home for The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival's 20th milestone. The state-of-the-art Stadium will be transformed into an opulent fashion oasis and here there will be an amazing display of all sorts of styles and fabulous creativity.
They will feature the latest collections from some of the leading local, national and international designers. The evening shows are some of the most exciting ones that the festival has had to offer in its diverse time of presenting this festival.
As a backdrop to all this will be the Perth City skyline, which will be seen here from a fabulous vantage point! It is an iconic venue for an iconic year in TPFF history. This year, Perth beauty, Lily Hutchinson will be the face of TPFF. Lily has an ethereal beauty which makes her the ideal choice to be the face of the Perth Fashion Festival's 20th anniversary.
The Western Australian stunner, who was discovered by Jaz Daly, and represented by Premier Models in the UK, will headline this year's event, which runs over 10 days from 5th to 15th September.
