Happy 5th birthday to Australian label Paolo Sebastian!

Designer Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian is certainly one to watch. At 21 he is already well regarded by the Australian fashion media, having dressed stars for the red carpet including Kylie Gillies and Ada Nicodemou.

Paul brings a timeless elegance and old hollywood glamour to his design aesthetic. His A/W Couture collection at Fashion Palette 2012 featured stunning chiffon gowns, luxe silks and flattering, classic silhouettes.

Of his career highlights to date, Paul includes receiving a scholarship to attend the prestigious Instituto di Design in Milan, dressing celebrities for this years’ Logies and presenting a sell-out show at the Adelaide Fashion Festival.

StylistaSister looks forward to following this talented emerging designer.

Alex Perry S/S 12/13

Sydney Couturist Alex Perry debuted his Spring/Summer 2012/13 Ready to Wear Collection in a glamorous catwalk show at Melbourne’s Docklands. Inspired by imagery of the Italian Islands, Perry’s designs featured floral embroidery and sparkling beading reminiscent of the “flowers and vines” of Sardinia.

Corsetry and feminine, fitted bodices dominated the collection.  When teamed with sheer overlays and textured embellishments, pieces evoked a whimsical, ethereal quality on the runway. A ‘butterfly effect’ resulted as models glided down the catwalk, with delicate floral motifs appearing to fan open and closed as they walked.

As expected, the soft billowy movement of Perry’s signature floor length gowns provided the wow factor. Former Australia’s Next Top model winner Alice Burdeu looked radiant in red in this dazzling sequined evening gown.

This slinky black dress with its patent ‘wet’ finish was another crowd pleaser, illiciting gasps of admiration amongst attendees.

With structured cocktail dresses to red - carpet ready gowns on display, the colour palette progressed from muted creams and golds to hues of lime green and crimson. Black and white colour blocking and use of lace detailing gave the collection a modern, on trend look.


The show was well received by attendees including “Perry Girl” Megan Gale and fellow A-listers Paula Joye, Grazia’s Kellie Hush, Naomi Robson and Australia’s Next Top Model’s Josh Flynn. Perry says his design philosophy is to make women “look and feel beautiful and glamorous”. Judging by this collection, mission accomplished.
