The Future of Fashion – Telstra Perth Fashion Festival



Future Runway

The Future of Fashion has been revealed as graduates from Perth’s fashion design schools took over the runway at the 20th Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. Always popular, diverse and exciting, the most creative runway of the year presented outfits in six categories.

It’s the second year that Wearable Technology has been included as a category. This exciting field offers futuristic style interpretations that warp the limits of fashion and encourages students to explore smart fabrics, cutting-edge textile applications and the latest developments in micro technology trends.
