Burlesque meets couture at Perth International Burlesque Festival’s night of nights. Lalla Rookh Bar & Eating House hosts this year’s festival launch party, where burlesque inspired wearable art takes the stage along with headlining artistes, touring and local performers. Brush shoulders with festival artistes in sumptuous surrounds, and get your finest glad rags on – there are prizes for best dressed, so come in your most outrageous ensemble, opulent evening wear or wildest wearable art. Think Haute couture catwalk, Venetian ball, dapper dandies, luscious latex, headwear, corsetry and custom designs – let your imagination run wild as we kick off the festival in style.
