PERTH Fashion Festival (PFF) 2018 was launched last night with a runway featuring six cutting edge designers, a premier and a former premier.

Dion Lee, Romance Was Born, Scanlan Theodore, Viktoria & Woods, Morrison and One Fell Swoop were part of the runway show at Optus Stadium.

Premier Mark McGowan officially opened the 20th anniversary festival but long-time supporter and former premier Colin Barnett also got some air time via a video message congratulating PFF director Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan.

Ms Harvey-Hanrahan said the opening night lineup was testament to the strength of the Australian fashion industry.

“This is a showcase that puts fierce Australian fashion in the spotlight,” she said.

“I am thrilled to see so many design powerhouses come together to officially open this year’s Fashion Paramount – and TPFF’s milestone 20th year.”
