Do your thang Dita.

Dita Von Teese will strut down the runway for Wheels & Dollbaby at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Closing Night in September this year.

The announcement isn’t too much of a surprise. The burlesque babe has been besties with Wheels & Dollbaby designer, Melanie Greensmith, for over a decade. They collaborated on the Wheels & Dollbaby ‘Dita’ pin-up cardigan which pretty much sells out every time it’s released.

Wheels & Dollbaby was founded in WA, so naturally Melanie is pretty excited about the whole affair.

“I thought it would make one hell of a sexy night for Perth to have my friend Dita walk down the catwalk wearing Wheels & Dollbaby, in the place where everything started for my brand,” Melanie said.

The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival runs over six days from 15 to 20 September.

Not since Zoolander v Hansel have we seen a walk-off this intense.
Nike just did it and it was pretty rad.
