Perth’s fashion pack gathered at 140 william on Tuesday morning for the launch of the 2011 Perth Fashion Festival program. Running from September 21-27, this year’s festival promises big things, and All Of The Above Creative is super excited to be involved. During the festival AOTA will produce two key events – ReStyle and the Hyogo Banshu Project. ReStyle has been a part of PFF for a few years now but this year’s edition will be quite different to previous incarnations. Designed to encourage people to shop at op shops, donate clothes and volunteer their time, this year ReStyle will have its very own pop up shop in the form of a kitsch 60s caravan in the Perth Cultural Centre. There will also be a ReStyle show at Fashion Central on Friday, September 23 at 11am, and sewing workshops at 1pm & 3pm on Saturday, September 24, and Sunday, September 25. If you love vintage clothing but aren’t sure how to alter second hand items to make them your own, don’t miss out on these free, hands-on workshops.

The Hyogo Banshu Project is an exciting new event that celebrates the relationship between Perth and our Japanese sister city, Hyogo. Renowned for its top notch textile industry, which produces fabrications for the like of Armani, Burberry and Chanel, Hyogo and Perth have been affiliated for 30 years now. To mark this momentus anniversary, Hyogo entrepreneur Mr Ozawa came over to Perth late last year to present six graduates from fashion & textile courses with scholarships that entitled them to a trip to Japan to have their own textiles produced. The graduates are now back in WA, busily crafting capsule collections with the fabrics they had made. Their designs will be presented in an invite only show at Studio Underground at the State Theatre Centre on Monday, September 26.

    Hi Emma,

    I can’t wait for Re-Style this year. Last year it was the stand out event for me. Sewing workshops are a wonderful idea, i will definitely be coming along!

    The Hyogo Banshu project sounds amazing!! I might have to be shameless and ask ppr if I can go because this sounds like the best event of the festival. It would be awesome to see the combination of japanese custom fabrics and Wa design.

    I’m starting to get very excited about this festival…

    Xx
