Wild Horses designer Natalie Donovan is following a successful runway as part of last year’s Designer Capsule with her new range Kleer hitting the catwalk.

The mother of two said it would carry signature prints in purples and greens with a selection of black and white.

‘We are producing some one-off pieces to go with this collection in white, silver and gun metal beading that will give the range the wow factor,’ Donovan said.

‘Expect eclectic, fun and slightly rebellious clothing and accessories.’

Zed Alliance’s Candice Tranchita and Paula Sinclair are bringing strong block colours and geometric prints to their edgy urban style.

‘The current mood for texture and uniqueness in fabrication has inspired the collection,’ Tranchita said.

‘It’s simple yet chic with the use of faux leather trims and delicate lace to create on trend shapes with a twist.’

The effervescent Natasha Butler of Bruug fame said Perth fashionistas could expect those simple, go-to pieces required in every girl’s wardrobe.

She has drawn on her fondness for the Western Australian relaxed lifestyle for a feminine collection that is sophisticated in style with a care free spirit.

Jess Pollitt from Ethel & Leo completes the designer quartet with a handmade collection of original artwork and timeless printed silks that are addicted to colour.

‘So expect Spanish tropical fiesta madness, cactus and fruit prints and an abstract tribal palette reflecting the celebration of the sun, flowers and the ocean,’ Pollitt said.

Also featuring in the WA Designer Collections Runway will be Asuar, Morgan Marks, Sara Winfield Swim and Steph Audino.

The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival will run over six days from September 17 to 22.
