I’m no fashionista, but Tipsy, Velvet Sushi designer Deborah Mckendrick’s collaboration with actor/director Mark Storen and some of the brightest young performers in Perth was intriguing enough to get me to the Little Creatures Loft to check it out.
I’m very glad I did.
Tipsey wasn’t uniformly slick, or particularly meaningful, but it was feisty entertainment, great to look at and a lot more besides. It’s important to see our performing artists working with commercial enterprises without losing their spark or compromising their integrity; it’s encouraging to see popular spaces like the Little Creature’s Loft used inventively and effectively; and it’s stimulating to see our fashion shown to winning effect on vibrant performers, and not just spiritless mannequins.
