KIYAKAYA presents an event in the concept of multiple pop-up designer installations to transform the heritage listed location of Perth’s oldest educational landmark, the Old Perth Boys’ School into individually curated spaces, which blur the line between ‘retail’ and ‘art installation’.

We invited visitors to enjoy the creative expression of our independent fashion labels and discover their latest collections. We also introduce innovation in garment design and customisation service.

The lines between retail and art installation will be blurred in an interactive market featuring independent labels and including a garment customisation service.

About Curtin St Georges Tce

Located in Perth’s oldest educational landmark, the Old Perth Boys’ School at the heart of Perth CBD. The building is culturally significant, having been home to many prominent organisations, including some of Western Australia’s defining educational institutions. From 1977, the National Trust of Australia (WA) has managed the building on behalf of the community. The limestone walled building was constructed in 1854, designed by Colonial Secretary of WA, William Ayshford Sanford and Clerk of Works Richard Roach Jewell to accommodate Perth Boys’ School.
