Flying visit to Perth for Telstra Perth Fashion Festival…

I’m just back from a flying visit to Perth for the opening night of the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.

My whistle-stop tour included a visit to the Target City store where I met some of the staff and had a chat to Today Tonight. Then it was off to a  VIP event hosted by Channel Seven and The West Australian at ‘Public House’.

Meeting Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan, the Festival Director.

Catching up with impersonator Katya Kokov dressed – fabulously – in the pink #DanniiForTarget Petites Collection sheath dress.

Meeting Laura Santoro, the amazing creator of the #DanniiDolls fashion illustrations I love so much.

Meeting  Pip Christmass - style journalist from The West Australian.

After the cocktail party I headed to the opening night show which featured  Aelkemi inc – one of my go-to labels for X Factor Australia – and high-fashion designers, Sebastian Gunawan and Michael Cinco.

My award for designer of the night, however, went to Perth’s Aurelio Costarella - one of my long-time favourite couturiers - who designed my fab outfit, with a special mention to Jan Logan for jewellery and shoes.

Australia’s first premium lounge exit touches down at Melbourne Airport

Welcome aboard! The exits are seven exits for your flight today, two at the front, two at the rear, two over the wing… and now one dedicated Premium Exit taking your through security and directly to your plane from Virgin Australia’s Melbourne Lounge. 

Yes, for the first time in Australia, Velocity Platinum and Gold Frequent Flyer members, Lounge members, and Business Class guests flying out of Melbourne can now leave the Lounge via a dedicated private security screening point to board their flight. 

Melbourne frequent flyers spend 83 hours a year in the airport according to a Virgin Australia-commissioned Galaxy Research, and this new Lounge feature is going to make life a whole lot easier for them. I know myself that being able to have a few minutes more in the Lounge so I can send one last email, freshen up pre-flight or just chill out makes my travels much more enjoyable.
