As Telstra Perth Fashion Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary, another Western Australian style heavyweight is also toasting the milestone.

Beloved Perth label ae’lkemi will herald 20 years in the industry with a dynamite runway display presented by Ray White Claremont Dalkeith at the new-look Fashion Paramount at Optus Stadium on Wednesday September 12.

Designer Alvin Fernandez has been creating stunning couture gowns for two decades, having won student designer for evening wear at TPFF in the early days of his career and later becoming the only name to win three coveted Designer Of The Year awards in WA.

This year, his presentation will follow a showcase of emerging creatives in Future Runway, allowing past and present to collide whilst highlighting Fernandez’s incredible trajectory.

Expect high voltage glamour from ae’lkemi’s latest collection that speaks to the very DNA of the label, with inspiration taken from the Victorian era that has been updated with a contemporary twist.

Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Director Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan said ae’lkemi had become a firm Festival favourite during their joint history.

“It has been so wonderful having a front row seat to ae’lkemi’s growth over the past 20 years,” Ms Harvey-Hanrahan said.

“He has gone on to have his work grace the catwalks of New York City, London, Milan and Berlin, so he is a style favourite not just in Australia but around the world.

“Alvin’s garments are recognised for their signature raw-edge elegance and the emphasis on femininity, making for incredible fashion moments on the runway.”
Ray White Claremont Dalkeith Director Vivien Yap said she was proud to support ae’lkemi’s 20th milestone.

“Alvin is a true WA visionary and it is an honour for Ray White Claremont Dalkeith to be a part of celebrating his journey,” Ms Yap said.

“There is a seamless synergy between fashion and real estate - they are both ways people can showcase their style and make a statement.

“We are so lucky in Perth to have incredible designers like ae’lkemi and we also have an amazing state to live in with beautiful homes.”
