All wrapped up
Fashion Week trends to start
stocking up on...
What winter chill? These Spring/Summer looks are HOT!
AND… we’re done!!
After 7 days and 45 shows, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is over for another year.
Now it’s time to wash off the fake tan and start thinking about what to wear in Spring (whaddya mean we’ve still gotta get through winter?!).
Flowing fabrics, frills and feminine cuts are set to be all the rage next season so says the catwalk shows by We Are Kindred, Romance Was Born, Steven Khalil and Ginger + Smart.
Bright colours and tailored styles will also be big after featuring in Dion Lee, Bec & Bridge, Michael Lo Sordo, Akira and Zhivago shows during the week.
“We’re seeing lots of really fine floaty fabrics, lots of mesh, a lot of really fluid layering, that’s another really big thing,” celebrity stylist Donny Galella told ARCHFASHION.
“Really muted colour palettes, a lot of pastels… of course, white-on-white is still big and the monochrome black-and-white trend is still really big as well,” he added.
Donny, was front row for many shows, along with the likes of Georgia Fowler, Pip Edwards, Sarah Ellen, Mimi Elashiry and Phoebe Burgess (just to name a few!).
But why wait for Spring? Here’s a lowdown of the trends to come and how to get them into your shopping basket NOW!
WE ARE KINDRED
Flowy floral-printed dresses were the centrepiece of this collection.
With a mix of maxi dresses and thigh-skimming playsuits, to nail this Spring-time bohemian goddess look, think sheer, layered and belted!
ROMANCE WAS BORN
Romantic? Yes. Pretty? Yes. Run of the mill? NO!
The unicorn dress said everything about the Electro Orchid Resort collection, which features all the typically offbeat designs we love about the eclectic brand, the show was a mix of sheer fabrics, beadwork and multi-coloured fringing.
With a mix of men’s and women’s fashion, this resort collection left the audience anything but ‘Devo’.
The nod to the 90s was mixed with plenty of cold-shoulder jackets and shiny trenches but basic tees with tailored trousers were the look of the show.
Akira Isogawa brought his Japanese influences through to the runway in androgynous style.
There were pops of red, various prints and kimono-style shirts for both men and women. So time to take him shopping...
Tailoring, sheer touches, fringing and pops of colour... this show had it ALL!
