Glamour owned the stage at the Perth Fashion Festival last Friday night when couture fashion labels Steph Audino and Reign the Label took to the runway. There’s lots to know about these two home grown fashion houses. While Reign the Label is definitely the new kid on the block, it’s popularity has soared after being spotted on the The Bachelor contestants in the last season. Steph Audino, a local favourite almost from inception, is always a crowd pleaser. More about both labels below…
Here’s what it all looked like for Designer 2 Runway – Couture Fashion.
“Reign was conceived in mid 2017 by Perth Stylist Bridget Hudson and Business Entrepreneur and Fashion Artisan Jo Iuliano.
The pair connected through a mutual admiration for unique and high quality design. Their first project was to create Bridget’s gown and her bridesmaid’s dresses for her dream wedding. After realizing that they had a similar vision and a compatible working energy, they became so inspired by what they had created it seemed like a natural progression that they would go on to create pieces that could be custom made or sold ready to wear.
The market has responded positively to the initial collection, and their trademark feminine designs have been spotted on high profile personalities across Australia, including the likes of national racing identity Francesca Cumani, Fox Sports Presenter Abbey Gelmi, Social Media Influencer Amy Zempilas and local Channel 7 Presenters Samantha Jolly and Amelia Broun.” – Reign the Label
“In 2011 the designer launched her first RTW collection. 2014 was a promising year for Audino as she showcased internationally at New York Fashion Week. From 2015 to 2017 Steph Audino played a major part in Miss Universe Australia as she dressed all the girls for the pageant, created the phenomenal Great Barrier Reef Costume for Caris Tiivel and was awarded the best gown in 2017 which landed her in Vegas dressing Olivia Rogers for the Miss Universe Finals.
