Aurelio Costarella's Store 'Post Emporium'

I recently returned from a visit to Perth where I was asked to conduct a Master Class on styling to fashion students, fashion designers and fashionistas during Perth Fashion Festival, I will post another story on PFF soon but first wanted to share with you my friend Aurelio Costarella's amazing store 'Post Emporium', that is situated in North Perth Western Australia.
On this visit to Perth I was pleasantly suprised to see a resurgence of up market, beautifully detailed boutiques that could sit anywhere in the world, including 'Dilettante', 'Zekka' and my fantastic friend Leith Groves new store 'Varga Girl' opening in Leederville soon.
But back to 'Post Emporium', Aurelio has created an amazing space with hints to 'Colette' in Paris and 'Liberty' in London, there is a private Haute Couture room to view the beautifully crafted gowns that Aurelio is so well known for, the ready to wear range is also on show and many unique treasures collected from around the world displayed in the main room. I was lucky to be there on a day where the light through the windows danced around the store to give it an ethereal feel that you will see in the above pictures.
Definitely a destination place and a must see if you find yourself in Perth, you can find 'Post Emporium' at 23 View Street North Perth Western Australia +618 92280373
