DROPSTITCH // BIRTHDAY SUITS

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010 by John

Know amongst the traps as the arts & fashion editor for X-Press and styling and snapping her way about town Emma Bergmeier, has (not so secretly) been making a bit of a name for herself with Perth’s first street fashion site, www.Dropstitch.com.au

When retiring from a holiday jaunt in the isles of Europe Bergmeier returned to Perth whilst most of her flock had fled the city for the world of ‘over-east’. www.Dropstitch.com.au was her vehicle to woo ‘em back. Armed with her camera, she vowed to hit the streets to document Perth’s most fashionable. That hasn’t panned out but what has is a increasing collection of images of the stylish inhabitants of Western Australia, raising the international and national profile of the WA fashion industry and its followers substantially. Since its inception, Dropstitch has been featured in a host of magazines including Vogue UK, German Glamour, Cleo Australia, South Korea’s Cracker Your Wardrobe, Russia’s Khooligan Magazine, and Australia’s own Attitude Magazine.

It may have taken a year or three, but to bask in the glory of all that is  www.Dropstitch.com.au it’s time for a soiree/exhibition on Friday, July 16, at one of the three Pigeonhole stores – Cabin Fever space (Bon Marche Arcade). Venture down for a dash of photographs featuring some of Perth’s most fashionable residents… and there will be prizes (and hopefully food and (alcoholic) drinks too)

Event Information:
Happy Birthday Dropstitch
Friday, July 16, 7pm – 10pm
Pigeonhole: Shop 16, Bon Marche Arcade, 80 Barrack Street, Perth.
