To celebrate our 5th year, we're bringing you a night of devilish decadence to delight the senses - the first Perth International Burlesque Festival Ball!

A Neo-Burlesque feast for every sense, the Dark of the Cabaret Couture Ball celebrates the weird, whacky, wild and generally outrageous in Burlesque! Brush shoulders with festival glitterati in sumptuous surrounds, and get your finest glad rags on – come in your most outrageous ensemble, opulent evening wear or wildest wearable art. Think Haute Couture catwalk, Venetian ball, dapper Dandies, luscious Latex, headwear, corsetry and custom designs – let your imagination run wild as we celebrate our 5th birthday in style!

Held in Fremantle's historic Victoria Hall and hosted by Famous Sharron, local, international, and interstate festival artistes take the stage alongside Jessie Gordon's Dirty Blues Band, and a burlesque inspired wearable art parade by local designers. Featuring a professional photo booth by vintage glamour photographer David Woolley, this is your night to be seen and photographed.

A night of raucous revelry and hedonic curiosities, the Dark of the Cabaret Couture Ball is a gala event like no other!
