After champagne in the VIP lounge, I spent Friday night sitting in awe at the Future Runway show for the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. The view from the front row wasn't too bad either! Categories for the evening included; Ready to Wear Women's, Eco Design, Ready to Wear Men's, Contemporary Eveningwear and Costume Design. Each design was as exciting as the last, parading down the runway to the likes of Jamie XX, Blockhead, Hermitude, Hudson Mohawke and Ellie Goulding. Overall, the show was interesting and fast paced with the winners announced after the finale walk.
