Telstra Perth Fashion Festival steps off the runway and into the gallery with an exhibition of Western Australian fashion objects that is way “beyond garment”, curated by Anne Farren. The exhibition profiles the works of 18 WA practitioners that exemplify the resurgence in appreciation for the finely crafted object of adornment. It sets out to reposition the fashion object by challenging assumptions about the relationships between accessory related forms and the body.
