It is that time of the year again when my work load ramps up and we get ready to let Perth know all about the number 1 fashion fundraising event STYLEAID!

In the course of the last two weeks we have had the launch of the STYLEAID Photographic Exhibition and then on Tuesday night this week we saw the STYLEAID launch event that was attended by a host of VIP’s, sponsors and the media.

This was a chance for those attending to once again revel in the delights of LaVie at Crown and taste some sensational morsels created by the amazing chefs there as well as getting to enjoy a range of beverages from some of the new and returning sponsors who are part of the event.

Guests were greeted with a glass of the delightful Fashion Prosecco that thrilled everyone and was a great way to start the night.  Added to that there was the option of 2 of the delightful Laurance Wines to also delight in  and of course beers from the crew from Matso’s.

With over 135 people in attendance the crowd mingled, chatted, swapped stories and felt the buzz surrounding the 19th STYLEAID which will take place in the newly refurbished Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth on Friday August 5.

With a stirring welcome from STYLEAID Chair Danicia Quinlan, a speech that put the event into perspective by WA AIDS Council Chair Sam Hastings and words from one of the newest sponsors for 2016 and host of the STYLEAID Photographic Exhibition Claire Ridley from Karrinyup Shopping Centre the night was perfectly framed.  Along with the fabulous team from the MINI Cooper Garage this year the event has some amazing sponsors involved once again that ensures that there is a great return to the WA AIDS Council.

STYLEAID will once again present WA’s most expansive Spring/Summer designer runway show and raise funds for the work of the WA AIDS Council and this years theme “TAROT” has seen the creation of what has to be one of the strongest campaigns to date.

With a concept and art direction from the amazing Aly May and the photography brilliance of Richard Jefferson along with the hair team directed by Sue Morgan and LaBiosthetique and make up artistry under the direction of Carol Mackie for M.A.C the images all featured an interpretation of a different tarot card.  The three that were chosen after Aly May had a tarot reading earlier this year were – The Magician, the Knight of Pentacles and the Five of Cups.

The event promises much this year and guests were all talking about the fashion, the theme and what they might expect to see this year as part of the event.

This was a great way to officially launch STYLEAID 2016 TAROT and as the guests departed with their special gift bags (filled with goodies from Grouch and Co, Baci Chocolates, Revamped Hair, Kevin Murphy, VODA Collagen Water, San Pellegrino, SABR Skin, Coco Vodka and Network Ten) all thoughts turned to what to wear on August the 5th.
