So what do some of the p-frow-essionals make of fashion week so far?

NADIA FAIRFAX


Dressed in Lover at the Bec & Bridge, Nadia Fairfax chatted all things fashion week with us.

ARCHFASHION: WHICH SHOW ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO SEE?

NADIA FAIRFAX: “I was really excited to see Bec & Bridge because I heard they were bringing back that real Bec & Bridge girl. [She] is a little more alluring and sexy, so I was super excited to see how they were going to do that while still keeping it cool. They nailed it”.

AF: TOP TRENDS NEXT SEASON?

NF: “A lot more. I’ve seen a lot more prints, textures - that minimalist thing is dying. Bring back the colours, bring back the fun, bring back the prints.”

AF: HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR FASHION WEEK?

NF: “I don’t. Every year I always imagine that I will prepare and then of course it’s the day before and I’m throwing things together!”

AF: YOUR GO-TO FASHION ACCESSORY?

NF: “It’s always big earrings! You can wear them with a bikini or a white shirt, on holidays and you can wear them with a big beautiful outfit. That’s my jam.”

ANNA HEINRICH


Dressed in a Bec & Bridge resort maxi dress at the label’s show, Anna Heinrich told us she’s got colour on the mind for this Spring/Summer 17. Bright stuff!

ARCHFASHION: AS A LONG-TIME BEC & BRIDGE FAN, WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE SHOW?

ANNA HEINRICH: “I love the colours, the cuts, the shapes, the polka dots, I even loved those suits - so sexy! I’ve been wearing so many pant suits at the moment, I’m loving it.”

“It’s very trendy, chic, affordable but it’s for everybody and they’ve just got so many good party dresses, that everyone just flocks to Bec & Bridge if they want a good party dress for a Saturday night”.

AF: TOP TRENDS NEXT SEASON?

AH: “One common theme has been the pant-suit. I know Bec & Bridge had that and Bianca Spender… I’ve [also] seen a bit of colour but I think this one was the most colourful I’ve seen. The really vibrant blues.”

AF: HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR FASHION WEEK?

AH: “I try and get an outfit in advance but for some reason I leave the accessories till the end. And then last Friday I was like ‘OK, it’s Friday everything’s about to close but I haven’t got bags, I haven’t got any of my accessories!’ So I went to a show earlier today and didn’t even bring a bag because I didn’t have a bag to go with it.”

AF: YOUR GO-TO ACCESSORY?

AH: “Bold and bright costume jewellery, but I don’t try and over do it.”
