As New York Fashion Week commences on the other side of the planet, I share with you Internationally stocked, nationally adored and locally heralded label Ae’lkemi’s show from last night. Designer Alvin Fernandez presented his Spring Summer 13 collection as part of STM Front Row held at Bistro Felix in Subiaco.
I could harp on for days about Alvin Fernandez’s genuis. I could say that I am a huge fan and that one of the first designer pieces I ever bought was a pair of his metallic denim pants and I still adore them today. I could say that he is one of the founding members of our fashion industry and that thanks to the likes of him, WA is increasingly becoming known as a fashion destination of note. I could tell you everything I love about this collection and more but INSTEAD I will let my photographs speak for themselves and if I may say so, by god do they ever!!
A special shout out goes to models Karina, Caris, Grady, Gabrielle and Nicole – all of whom are angels to work with, all of whom I love dearly, care about immensely and are each such special people I would happily step in front of moving traffic to guard their beautiful souls haha. If it wasn’t for the relationships I had with Perth’s gifted models, my life would quite literally suck! Enjoy y’all xx
Ae’lkemi is located at Times Square in Claremont.
