The Dyson Jones/Westpac Fashion Parades will also feature the work of emerging young designers.

Cordelia Gibbs, a graduate fashion designer from Curtin University, was brought up on a Merino sheep stud and is passionate about wool. Her debut collection, A Life in Wool, encapsulates the character of the shearing shed.

Organisers said visitors should prepare to be wowed by the work of a 2013 fashion graduate with a big future.

Fashion from edgy WA women's label Jonte features beautiful embellishments such as hand-beaded details and a variety of trims, all with a unique twist.

The label's designer, Jonte Pike, was named WA's Vocational Student of 2011, kick-starting her career in the limelight.

On show will be a collection of Jonte's boutique-range garments, including one-off creative designs.

Meanwhile, Anna and Michelle from Depeche Mode and Uptown Boutique are ready to style the latest trends and have you looking your best.

Organisers have also welcomed Olive and Coco to this year's parade, with the label's fabulous hand-knitted woollen jumpers sure to make an impression.

There are prizes to be won, with the chance to win an accommodation voucher from Banksia Gardens Resort at every parade.

Be entertained and inspired by all that is on offer at this year's Dyson Jones/Westpac Fashion Parades.
