Though my LMFF experience ended up being a bit of a fail (I caught the worst flu I’ve ever had and spent most of the week bed-bound), I’m happy to be home and cannot wait for an incredibly exciting fashion event that’s set to hit Perth next week. Perth ex-pat and fashion prodigy Kym Ellery has decided to return to her home town for a Trunk Show at the stunning one40william complex, premiering her Royal Tenenbaums/Marie Antoinette inspired S/S RTW 2011 collection before it hits the hallowed runway at Rosemount Australia Fashion Week in May.

The presentation is an initiative of the Perth Fashion Festival and marks the beginning of a year of very exciting events on the WA style calendar. I’ll be backstage taking snaps of the Trunk Show’s preparation and will also cover the runway and street fashion goodness, so expect lots of Ellery love in the coming weeks!

To coincide with the Trunk Show fun, an invite only ELLERY sale will be held on Tuesday, March 29, from 12-6pm. If you want your name on the door for the sale email jbrown@perthfashionfestival.com.au.

I’m loving these photos of Kym’s latest collection, shot on location at Château de Champlâtreux in Paris by Paul Empson. I wish I could transport myself to wintery France – I am so sick and tired of this unrelenting Perth summer!
