Fashion designer Alex Perry is following in the footsteps of other international fashion designers with a partnership to develop a boutique residential project in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
Local Brisbane developer Chrome Properties has secured the couturier’s design and marketing skills for an 11-storey residential tower at 959 Ann Street, across the road from Anthony John’s Emporium precinct.

The approved development will launch to market on May 26 with a cocktail party. Prices will begin at $375,000 for a one bedroom apartment and top out at $3,000,000 for a three bedroom.
Billed as Australia’s “most fashionable address”, Alex Perry Residential claims it will deliver a European-style, multi-purpose development to the rapidly growing lifestyle precinct.
It will feature a glittering marble and chandelier-filled lobby, rooftop Grecian inspired pool and a lounge area known as The Aqua lounge.

“My role as a couturier is to customise a garment to complement the features and personality of its wearer,” said Perry. “I have applied the same principles to Alex Perry Residential, incorporating my knowledge of proportion, scale, colour and texture to spaces instead of bodies.”

Designed in partnership with Cottee Parker Architects, the development will feature a total of 131 apartments, including 81 one-bedroom, 44 two-bedroom and 6 three-bedroom apartments, and come in a choice of “blonde” or “brunette” colour schemes.

According to the Development Application, 65 apartments will be dedicated to short-term or serviced accommodation. Chrome Properties have plans to roll out up to nine ‘Alex Perry Residential’ projects across Australia through to 2012.

The groom’s suit or tuxedo should vary slightly from his attendants’ so that he stands apart from them, but the rest of the group should be identically dressed. The formality of the wedding, the time of day or evening, the number of bridesmaids and the bride’s gown all play a role in determining the apparel of the groom and his groomsmen.

For an informal wedding, where the bride wears a short dress or suit, the groom and groomsmen may wear black, dark blue or dark gray business suits with white shirts and gray or gray and white stripy ties.

For a day summertime wedding, dark blazers worn with white or gray trousers are always appropriate. For a formal white-tie or black-tie evening wedding, the grooms suits should be full dress or tails, including black tailcoat with white pique’ waistcoats and bow tie, white shirt with a wing collar, studs and cuff links.

Top hats and white gloves may also be worn as part of the grooms wedding attire. Shoes should be plain, undecorated and black, and worn with black dress socks. They should be un-scuffed and polished.
Black patent leather place ar worn for a black-tie or white-tie evening wedding.

Lace wigs fall into 3 general categories: Front Lace Wigs, Full Lace Wigs, and Whole Lace Wigs.

Front Lace Wigs have lace at the forehead extending from ear to ear. Therefore Front Lace wigs cannot be pulled in a high pony tail unlike Full Lace Wigs. Lace front wigs for black women will give you a natural hairline in the front. This means the hair can be parted anywhere throughout the front of the unit. This cap style only has to be glued down or taped in the front and is ideal for women that never want to wear their hair in up-dos or high ponytails or have hair thinning or other medical conditions.

The construction of the crown is made of tracks just like a regular wig. It is usually accompanied with two combs on the front and one on the back. Two adjustable straps with hooks on the back ensure a secure fit. Lace Front is by far the most popular of lace wigs.

Full Lace Wigs by some manufacturers come with lace on the front (ear to ear) and on the back which allows them to be put in a high ponytail. There is no lace on the crown. Some full lace wigs are custom made, and have lace all over which does not allow them to be one size fits all.

The construction of the middle section is made of tracks just like a regular wig. It is usually accompanied with two combs on the front and one on the back. Two adjustable straps with hooks on the back ensure a secure fit.

Whole Lace Wigs offer parting anywhere. The lace is all over. Usually the lace on the front and back is Swiss or French and the lace on the crown is mesh lace. The construction of these wigs is very lightweight, stretchable. They are usually handmade which means the strands of hair are manually tied to the lace. The mesh lace allows for the hair to be parted any where, is breathable and light weight. These wigs still have combs and adjustable straps with hooks for secure fit. Whole Lace is the choice for individuals who have experienced a complete hair loss
