Australian fashion designer Alex Perry is passionate about a lot of things but when it comes to kids and charities he continues to put his money where he’s mouth is, supporting the AEIOU Foundation for children with autism.

The sixth annual Alex Perry Gala event in aid of AEIOU will be held on the Gold Coast on Friday evening, June 17.   About 500 people are expected to attend the event at Sanctuary Cove and Perry will unveil his Cuban Princess Spring/Summer 2011 collection for the first time in Queensland.

  1. I’m short and Voluptuous,what evening dress would you design to make me look good and “slender”?

  2. Why do all the famous Designers in the world only create beautiful dresses for the 6ft slim woman. As extremely talented artists why not the plus size also.

  3. Do you go into clothing stores and rearranging your clothes into much better displays and to the front so they sell better??

  4. I’d love to know how he’s managed to keep his glamourous designs relevant in a society that’s become increasing casual both in dress and attitude. There are less and less occasions to dress up and even when there is, people choose to dress down… How has his business survived this?

  5. What inspires you when you are thinking up a new design, is it shape, colour, material or design? Also what excessories would go with that outfit, clouch, brouch, necklace, bracelet, shoes etc.

  6. My question for Alex is If there is one fundamental message you try to convey to women through your creations, about women, and yourself as a designer, what is it?

  7. How did a boy growing up in a hamburger shop become to dream of dazzling gowns and then become Australia’s red carpet glamour legend?

  8. I would ask him how many ‘collections’ he has in advance, are they on paper or in his head if he has them and what drives him to get up each day.


  9. How would Mr Perry inject a little more youth, colour and joy into the wardrobe of the new Duchess of Cambridge? What would he love to see her wearing from his current collection?
