What’s On



Internationally renowned fashion designer, Mauricio Alpizar, is unveiling his cutting-edge Spring/Summer collection at Caversham House on 11th September, 2021 in what promises to be a fashion spectacular inspired by the architecture of Italy.

Enjoy the latest luxury travel wear designs by Mauricio Alpizar at this gala event, where 50 pieces from his new fashion collection will be unveiled – just in time for the Spring racing season.

This sophisticated label is produced using only ecologically sourced, sustainable fabrics and dyes. Mauricio believes that every personality deserves a stage, and he seeks to design only those products that serve to enhance individual self-expression. “Every unique piece in my collection tells a story,” he says. European opulence and glamour will abound at this event, which promises so much more than the unveiling of a runway collection. It will be a performance that showcases Italian culture and will give guests an authentic experience that transports them to Italy for a day in the luxurious confines of Caversham House.  “I’m bringing a slice of Italy to Perth, seeing we can’t travel overseas at the moment,” enthuses Alpizar. “Perth has such a vibrant Italian community. Through this collection, I want people to experience the Italian culture.”

Guests will be welcomed with drinks in the Colonnade, followed by the fashion parade which is themed on Italian architecture, such as the Sistine Chapel and the Trevi Fountain, through the European inspired Hidden Gardens. The show will conclude with a showstopper wedding dress that has been painstakingly hand-painted and beaded. After the runway, guests can meander into the showroom where Mauricio will be on hand to show guests the unique pieces, allowing guests the opportunity to place orders for the upcoming racing carnival.

Following the parade, guests will enjoy drinks, including sparkling and wines from RiverBank Estate ,and a substantial selection of delicious canapes set against the backdrop of Italy in a European-styled marquee in the grounds of Caversham House. As the night progresses, guests can dance the night away with tunes by DJ, Dean Misdale, of Priscilla Queen of the Desert acclaim. From the music to the styling, the Mediterranean cuisine, and the clothing, this exciting fashion extravaganza marks the inaugural collaboration between Mauricio Alpizar and Caversham House.

This is the first time a fashion event of this calibre has been hosted in the Swan Valley. “I couldn’t think of a better venue to showcase my new fashion collection,” says Mauricio Alpizar.
