From our accomplished designers to our stunning models and hardworking pop stars, Sebastian, right, has been consistently blown away by the talent coming out of Perth.
“One thing I’ve learnt in life is that you can have all of the hype in the world but you have to deliver, and that’s something that’s definitely happening from people in WA — they’re delivering,” she toldAAA .
“A lot of talented people in the fashion industry come from Perth and from WA. They come here (Sydney) and they just blitz it and they’re really, really good at what they do.”
Hot on the heels of styling local designer Betty Tran’s Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week Australia show last night, the mother of two, who is married to Guy Sebastian, will hop on a plane to Perth in a few days and she has some big plans in store.
In addition to checking out the sights, the Adelaide-raised creative is looking forward to spending time with her good friend and client Samantha Jade, who will return home to finalise her red-carpet look for the TV Week Logie Awards, where she is nominated for best new talent.
“We have a fitting because she’s getting dressed by Pallas Couture for the Logies,” Sebastian revealed.
“They have a shop in Sydney but they make a lot of their stuff out of Perth. So we have a dress fitting while we’re all in Perth and her dad is going to cook me a curry as well, which I’m excited about.
“I feel like it’s my home away from home already.”
While in Perth, Sebastian will also host a runway show and styling workshop at Garden City next Thursday, showcasing the hottest looks for the colder months.
An experienced stylist with a client list that includes Renae Ayris and Jessica Mauboy, the style maven is passionate about making fashion accessible and is looking forward to sharing her expertise with local shoppers.
“Dressing and fashion can be a little bit intimidating for some people,” she said. “It’s all a bit scary sometimes so I want to break down the barrier between the scary and the fun of fashion because ... it should be fun.
