2006 theme: Heaven

This was the second year for STYLEAID at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and was hosted by the incomparable Verity James along with an up and coming performer Hayden Tee (who would go on to thrill audiences in 2015 with his performance in Les Miserables, which he will be bringing to Broadway in 2016). Hayden also performed on the night along with a specially created Latin Ballroom dance number.

STYLEAID 2006: Heaven


A unique and creative addition also made its first appearance at STYLEAID with a new idea from Aly May. Twenty top Perth designers each donated a garment that would later be sold to raise additional funds and then twenty of Perth's top photographers each agreed to produce a limited edition photograph of one of the garments. These completed photographs were then revealed along with the finale garments at the very first VIP sponsors launch event on June 27 at the Parmelia Hilton Perth.

The photographs were then exhibition in a range of retail spaces in the lead up the event and then sold through the launch event and on the night of STYLEAID.

The launch of the photographs also featured in a front page editorial in the Sunday Times Magazine in the lead up to the launch.

Photographers who were involved in this new concept included: Ivan Shaw, Oscar Chong, the Regnards, Di Vidos, Carine Thevenau, Stefan Gosati, Chantel Concei, Jody Pachnuk, Frances Andrijich, Dragana Spasich and Tony Nathan.
