In a spectacular first for Perth Fashion Festival, An Evening with Flannel will abandon the traditional runway, with designer Kristy Lawrence presenting an unconventional showcase event, evoking feelings of a bygone era with models unveiling the stunning fashion whilst guests indulge in a decadent three course dinner.
On show will be Flannel’s Spring Summer 2012/13 collection, Neronis, styled by former Vogue fashion editor, Meg Gray.
Neronis embodies the notion of elegant, feminine ease and simplicity. Inspired by the upbeat peculiar life of a 1920’s circus girl and her time on and off the stage, Neronis is a collection filled with romance, elegance and a sense of adventure.
Luxurious bronze sequined kimono jackets, ostrich feather gowns and emerald silk liquid gowns are luminescent beacons in a sea of butter, crème brulee and vanilla hued laces, linen and silks. Enchanting 1920’s separates convey a feeling of inquisitive freedom from sweet chemise and bloomer sets to onesies and flowing lounge pants.
“An Evening with Flannel promises to be a truly magical and decadent event. I am thrilled to be able to bring fashion followers a new, innovative and creative experience. Flannel’s salon spectacular will be the first of its kind for PFF; a truly special and unique fashion delight,” Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan, Director, Perth Fashion Festival.
An Evening with Flannel will take place in Hackett Hall at the Western Australian Museum on Monday 24 September at 7pm.
PFF is supported by the City of Perth and the State Government through Eventscorp, the Department of Culture and the Arts.
Perth Fashion Festival 19-25 September 2012.
