Flannel is a WA label that has gone from strength to strength in Australia and Internationally with not one but two stores in one of Perth’s ritziest areas on Napoleon Street in Cottesloe and now with a Los Angeles leg in Venice Beach and a menswear line all under their umbrella, this is a WA success story at it’s finest. Designer Kristy Lawrence and her savvy, business prowess has launched this label into a serious brand and found a fashion following amongst the perthonalities and A-listers alike.
The collection was inspired by 1970’s beach culture with soft jewel tones and easy to wear, relaxed silhouettes perfect for the Perth or LA summer climate.

The 70’s are back at Flannel
Easy, breezy, beautiful Ali Caldwell in Flannel. I could totally see myself wearing this outfit. As I have no bust, the 70’s should really be my era

No one does the tiered skirt like Flannel’s Kristy Lawrence. Here she is making some final adjustments before a model steps onto the runway
Last minute adjustments backstage. I don’t know if I say this often enough but these photos are all a miracle for me to capture. I was zooming in from a corner, trying not to get in anyone’s way. Sometimes they look so serene as though everyone is walking on air but I suppose that is really the beauty of photography – a still moment captured forever. However it is more often than not amongst a sea of bedlam that I find these beautiful moments. Lately with my new camera, I am loving an action shot and am now able to take them more clearly – the action and movement is more true to form backstage
peach nails, blonde babes, strong lips, big hair and loose silhouettes
