Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011 – Alex Perry

May 9th, 2011

Alex Perry was the first show to kick off Fashion Week for me. I had pretty high expectations, as most do when it comes to Alex Perry. Thankfully I can say, my expectations were met.

It was Cuban Princess collection that dropped many jaws, with a fresh and fabulous array of tantalising colours, textures and materials. This collection made me feel… On holidays. It’s time to turn up the music and party!

Alex Perry’s latest collection is inspired by festival fun, sultry nightlife, and the crisp upper class – a simmering melting pot know as Havana, Cuba… a fusion that is the essence of this politically charged paradise.

Let the heady Latina beats lead your feet as white hot tailoring cuts through the heat. Stay cool in cigar shirt-dresses that reflect a classic note. Precisely fitted and cinched jackets with sharp double-stitched collars reference a Spanish pedigree.

Out came the party dresses in Tamale red silk trimmed with Curacao blue that were ready to Rumba. Dangerously tight dresses in colour-blocked mojitos of Pomegranate, Blood Orange and Pepper shook up the catwalk. Cut away necklines and cheeky hems in spiced shades delivered an intoxicating medley.

Pools of Caribbean aqua refresh the palette with voluminous patio gowns made of silk georgette and necklines that glimmer like a crystal ocean… perfection for languishing on the wide veranda. Long billowing evening skirts slashed high to reveal a flash of tanned thigh, teamed with floral prints that made a sensational splash.

I was a big fan of the glossy slick of deep noir sequins, which intensified the mood to scorching and the serious glitterati come out to play.

An awesome collection… This was most certainly one that stayed up high on my list of favourite shows during fashion week.
