Cameron wears designs by Malachi By Alister Yiap


Annabel wears designs by Zanthus & Generics

Last Wednesday, November 10, while I was standing knee high in an oat field on a farm in York shooting the next edition of X-Press Fashion, some entrepreneurial lasses from WA’s fashion community rallied together for Celebrate The Sun, a fundraiser at The Bird for Beyond Blue.

Organisers enlisted a slew of talented local designers to create one-off pieces for the event, which were showcased in a runway presentation, followed by a silent auction. If, like me, you weren’t able to make it along on the night, fret not because the silent auction continues online until this Sunday, November 21, so there’s plenty of time for you to bid on your favourite designs! All the funds raised from the auction go straight to Beyond Blue so dig deep and nab yourself a unique piece of the WA fashion industry in the process.

Big thanks to Cameron, Hannah, Emily, Annabel and Chloe for modeling; to Toni & Guy for their hair styling skills and to Constance Bowles for beautifying the lads and lasses prior to the show.
