Proud as punch.

We feel a sense of pride when we see one of our own make it. Cast your mind back to July, when babe Lianna Perdis fronted Issue 159 of Fashion Journal. 

Now, the up-and-comer has walked her first runway, at Greek designer, Dimitris Petrou’s, FW17 show.

Petrou’s A Couture Affair collection was inspired by Agatha Christie’s fictional heroes, with gowns embodying the characters.

"It was a combination of many feelings. It was so surreal and a tad nerve wracking,” Lianna said of the experience. “But something I've been dreaming of since I was five, when I first ‘walked’ in my mum's heels.”

Things are just beginning.
