Dilettante Presentation

New Season Presentation – April

Dilettante is one of the most important boutiques in Australia.When Damien Woolnough, Editor of Vogue Australia’s website came to visit last year as part of Perth Fashion Festival, we had a conversation about beautiful fashion boutiques. Both of us agreed that Dilettante is one of the best fashion destinations Australia has on offer.

The garments and accessories available in-store are sought after world-wide and the space itself –  which houses pieces direct from the international designer shows, rivalling the likes of Sydney’s, The Corner Shop, Paris’, Collette, London’s, Browns and New York’s, Zao – is a mecca of creative inspiration and visual splendour.

The best part of it all is that since Dilettante opened its doors back in 2007, Perth fashion people have had access to some of the world’s best international designer wares. Designs by fashion mavericks such as Vivienne Westwood, A.F. Vandervorst, Christopher Kane for Swarovski, Gareth Pugh, Undercover, Preen and Costume National are all available in Perth through Dilettante. A reality that only a few years ago would have seemed like a far off dream.

Boys in all black after the presentation.
A boy on the street who was reluctant to let me take his photograph but it was most necessary to show that boys like this do exist in Perth. There ARE fashion forward boys and girls in this town despite what some ill-educated people think and really that is what SV is all about – showing them to the world.I too was wearing cobalt blue tights on the night with my matching blue Jessie Hill booties so I was delighted to see a boy who had the same look in mind. Unisex is the new androgyny. I also love the shirt with adornment. It is apparently the new thing in London for boys to wear jewels over their shirts and adornment is everywhere at the moment.

Fashion is daring to be different.
