PFF Day Two
Mel B aka Scary Spice was in town as an invited VIP for Perth Fashion Festival and as such she held a press conference at her hotel. As a teenager of the 90's meeting and being in the same room as a Spice Girl was an amazing opportunity not to be missed, especially as the shoes the Spice Girls popularised in the 90's at the height of their fame are very much back in fashion. Yep I'm talking about platform sneakers and shoes which I'm very much in love with right now. The assembled media were told to ask only one question each and to not ask anything too personal, which for me was ok as all I wanted to know was if she was going to buy or wear platform shoes this time round. She laughingly answered "I have shit loads" from her old Spice Girls days, which makes me really want to rummage through her archived wardrobe to see all the amazing 90's platforms, a girl can dream.
Yeojin Bae was the first show of the night. Held at the majestic museum it was a beautiful setting for a beautiful collection. I have now seen this collection three times on the runway, first at RAFW, secondly at MSFW and now at PFF and each time I have seen something new within the pieces.

Romy Frydman from Style Me Romy and designer Kym Ellery came up to me to ask when I got time to do my hair. We had enjoyed a VIP lunch earlier that day in Subiaco at which I had my usual plain blonde hair, but for the shows I had used my Kevin Murphy Color Bug on my tips and they were impressed.
The second show of the night was Designer Capsule #1. The cute cupcake was a great little front row addition.
The museum had undergone a set change and these beautiful flowers were on display.

The first designer to walk was Little Gracie, a cute whimsical collection of floral prints, pastel colours and vintage inspired silhouettes.
The second designer of the capsule showcase was Lisa Marjanovich whose models were styled with extreme wet look hair wearing the collection made up of nude tones, ruching and asymmetric hems.
Paper Skye was the final designer to show, and was my favourite of the night. See-through sheer maxi dresses, pleated skirts and stripes all in a muted colour palette of white on white.
