Last weekend saw the Cut & Paste: Micro-Festival launch the tenth issue of the Cut & Paste DVD. Kicking things off in the balmy sun at 4pm the Bakery was filled with Perth’s first Silent Micro-Cinema, a Hurben/Planet Clothing collaboration (which had sticky tape horns and limbs hanging from the rafters) and a plethora of vintage and retro game console and canvas hangings adorning the sea containers.

The Micro-Festival saw unique collaborations between Felicity Groom and Diger Rokwell, Naik, Zeke, Kit Pop and KZ the Boogieman from Cosmo Gets, in addition to 6s & 7s playing their album Choose the Sentinel Blooze from beginning to end, as the Panda Band did with their yet to be released album. Soulfister, Abbe May, Rex Monson, Tomas Ford, Mathas, Chris Wheeldon, Gemma Pike and the Cut & Paste Sound System were all on hand to round out the musical entertainment.

The man with his stills camera in hand, Bradley Serls was there to grab everyone in their Micro-Festoval festivities… See if you’re featured in the gallery!

The Perth Fashion Festival returns the Perth CBD for another year. Like last year the team behind Cut & Paste is on board and will be covering a range of events from September 9 – 15.

Here are some of the Cut & Paste picks for this year’s festival:

Popsicle - Returning for it’s third year; Popsicle is the premier event for Perth’s independent fashion designers. Cut & Paste has the opportunity to speak to ten of the designers involved with this year’s event. Stay tuned over the course of the festival as we upload daily designer video snapshots! …We also have a $50 Gift Voucher to giveaway for Popsicle, more details on how to get your hands on that next week.

Fashion Paramount – After a successful move to the Gasworks last year, Fashion Paramount returns once again. Cut & Paste will be capturing shows from Wheels & Dollbaby, Fifteen Minutes, WA Designer Collections, and UP! The Finale… The Cut & Paste Sound System will also be on hand at the Fashion Bar to wrap up Fashion Paramount!

Unwrapped: The Marketplace – Turns the Perth Cultural Centre into an open-market place with one-off designs, jewelry, illustrations and accessories.

Re-Style – this is something close to the heart of the Cut & Paste team, as we generally can’t afford to get our clothing from anywhere except the Op- Shop. Check out the catwalk and workshop that ventures into the world of recycled clothing and how you can make it look catwalk hot!

Avant Garde – Although not ‘officially’ part of the Perth Fashion Festival, the creative heads behind Dilettante, Zekka and Head Studio are putting on an exclusive pre-festival party for the fashion forward thinking.

Cut & Paste will be down at the event as the muses for local label David andor Billy
