Empire Rose Delivers

Designer Catherine Cezeika promised fashion followers a head-on collision with  Studio 54 inspired rock star glam for her runway offering at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.  Last night she delivered. A full house rocked in their seats as Cezieka’s  Empire Rose Rock Star Royalty Runway transformed into the heady days of clubbing in the 70’s.

The runway back-dropped against a series of black and white celebrity shots that looked liked they’d been snapped in the club itself. Two DJ’s, who also took turns to strut their stuff, spun 70’s inspired sets. At the same time, models in Empire Rose garments sashayed, strutted and swaggered along the runway. A collection of equal parts glam, sexy and dangerous, Cezieka delivered on what she’d promised.  In spades.

Think sequined bomber jackets, skin tight leather pants,  bold graphic prints, slogans, animal prints and chains. This is high end glamour fused with uber cool street style and it delighted the crowd who had definitely turned up to play. Many were wearing Empire Rose.

“It excites me not only as a designer, but as a human, that people are feeling more courageous in their freedom of expression. I think that this comes through with fashion first and foremost,” says Cizeika about her collection’s Studio 54 inspiration. It was the haven that celebrated “individuality, freedom of expression and gave you the permission to be who you really are.” The essence of Studio 54 that resonates most with the designer is “once you walk through the doors you, are free.”
