STYLEAID, the WA AIDS Council’s major fundraiser delivered a night of style, surprises and the best of the local fashion industry on Friday night.

Now in it’s 18th year the A-list event drew a diverse crowd of people who enjoyed an evening of cocktails, a three course meal and a healthy dose of inspirational fashion.

This year the event was titled ‘STYLEAID Gogo’ and followed a swinging sixties theme with revelers sporting bold prints, donning short mini dresses and showcasing lots of big beehive hair.

Outside the venue sponsor Auto classic displayed some cars filled with super attractive models. After guests walked the Black Carpet they enjoyed cocktails and live music before the doors to main ballroom at Crown opened revealing energetic singers belting out some ’60s classics.

Once the crowd was seated they enjoyed a three course meal, while watching local fashion labels and stores showcase a range of men’s and women’s wear.

On the stage alongside bee-hived go-go dancers were Kazaky styled male dancers in tights and high heels who twerked like there was no tomorrow.

Among the labels and retailers showing support were Atlas Devine, Aurelio Costerela, Ae’lkemi, Dilentante, Kinn, Monster Alphabets, Salasai, Varga Girls, Nells, Zhivago, Rhodes and Beckett, One Fell Swoop and Wolfgang and Sons.

Newcomer I Love Mr Mittens showcased their woolen wares on models wearing lingerie. While Wolfgang and Sons caught the audience’s attention with younger body popping models who showed off their hip-hop dance moves.

The label everyone was talking about though was Yuuki Clothing. The label which showcases the work of designer Issy MacCauley filled the runway with over sized shirts that draped off the models. The range was both stylish and humorous.
