SPEQS at Swim + Resort Series 2017

The Swim and Resort Series has quickly become the most exciting summer runway in Western Australia and one of the leading swim and resort wear showcases in Australia. Each year, the shows feature local talent and international designers while embracing everything that makes WA a great spot for local fashion.

This year, SPEQS partnered with the Swim + Resort weekend to support the runway shows and events. The events spanned from free community events on Thursday night at Claremont Quarter, to a runway on the Ku De Ta boardwalk and lastly, finishing with a runway on the sand at City Beach.

Day One

We enjoyed the stunning designs, bright clothing and fun runways. On Saturday, Manning Cartell walked models down the Ku De Ta boardwalk. With views of Perth city and the glistening Swan River in the background, the show was beautiful and unique.

Day Two

Day two was set at City Beach. The bleachers set up on the beach, facing a sandy runway with the ocean as a backdrop. We watched West Australian designers showcase their swim and resort styles including the labels; Ambra Maddalena, Amore + Sorvete, House of Skye, Kirrikin, Morrison, Ocean Zone, Sei Bella Aqua Wear and Skye & Staghorn.

The second runway of Day two was the highly anticipated Camilla, From Rio With Love collection. The bright and colourful runway embodied the fun and playful beach lifestyle that we often get to enjoy as West Australians.

We’re ready for summer! Thanks to the Fashion Council of WA for having us on board and kicking off a great Summer at SPEQS. We are grateful to be able to support other Perth designers. SPEQS is based in Leederville and we are passionate about recognising local talent.
