Every year the WA Aids council put together a spectacular gala event to raise money for much needed research and support programs. With a theme of Mythic proportions, this year’s StyleAid event took guests by the hand and guided them through a whimsical fairytale that started with the purchase of a ticket. Telling the story of The Girl and the Golden Bird, guests were swept into a storybook land where they were tasked with bringing the tale to life through fashion, entertainment, fine food and beverages, good company and the ethereal setting of the dressed Crown Ballroom.
This is my third year covering this event and it was probably my favourite. I have a penchant for whimsical and fairytale themes so I loved watching the looks backstage take on a forested storybook appeal. Top WA designers including Zhivago, Aurelio Costarella, Monster Alphabets, Ae’lkemi and Convict Bags and Accessories showcased their latest collections in mythic fashion.
