"PFW's mission is to empower the local West Australian fashion community by creating ever-growing business opportunities through events that connect people, encourage individuality and nurture creativity," says the event's website.
A seat at the front row was priced at $350. Ruth Tarvydas kicked off the event with her spring s/summer collection 2012 named the Dark Angel.
Day 5, the last day of the event was said to be the most extravagant of them all as models posed around with clothing that was both unique and simply breath-taking.
Savoir Faire PFW Director, Sylvia Giacci said, "It is so exciting to be able to bring together West Australia's fabulous fashion talent and shine the spotlight on them. Engaging reciprocal relationships with other countries is a very important part of encouraging and sustaining our fashion industry. Furthermore this stylish and inspirational event will see strong alliances forged with fashion weeks around the world."© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved.
