PERRY PRINCESS EXCESS
1000 guests, 65m runway, 35 models, 50 looks & an Arabian Princess SS10 Collection - there's only 1 Alex Perry.
I should add this disclaimer right here; I adore Alex Perry.
I have an obscene amount of Perry in my walk-in & I love it, but Perry’s creations last night to close Day 2 of Rosemount Australia Fashion Week were amazing.
The usual Über late entry applied this year, along with ‘80’s music, roughed up super-skinny models frequently in teeny-tiny minis or short shorts walked the standard Perry cracking pace at Fox Studios Sound Stage 7.
Perry did not disappoint with stunning flowing gowns, metallic accents & loads of tulle.
Not loving the custom Tony Bianco for Alex Perry shoes, they were a poor cousin to the unmitigated style of Alex Perry. Matt Jordon hilariously tweeted “Alex Perry's suburban horrors...Imelda says 'if you lay with dogs like Tony Bianco ur bound to catch flees.”
While the footwear de jour was horrifyingly disappointing the Arabian Princess SS10 Collection is to die for & will no doubt be finding a home in many a walk-in.
