By far my most favourite from fashion week. Nicola Finetti - can you believe it? Perhaps it's the minimal styling, clean clean clean.
An Ode to No One struck me with their butterflied architectural prints and delicious colour palette. Isn't the icy mint blouse just magic with that skirt?!
Camilla - The queen of kaftans. Maximum everything. If this is any indication of how summer will be, it is going to be wonderful.
Elliat - a new face to fashion week, but this dress is just gorgeous. The iridescent shimmer is perfect and reminds me of the Two Weeks skirt in the below post.
Manning Cartell's 2012 SS collection was subtly inspired by Frida Kahlo. I particularly love the sheer mesh jacket, floral print, bright heels and the coral, silver and white striped pants on Ruby-Jean. Let me know how you feel about this collection.
Miss Unkon 2012 - the first dress, wow. The peek-a-boo panels and the hint of lemon yellow works perfectly.
Suboo - I not only adore the clothes but the setting, a gorgeous sunny Sydney sky-scraper view with beautiful flowers bordering. This collection is such a perfect representation of what an Australian summer is all about. I am actually reminded of my summer holidays in Queensland with my family. We would camp at Tweed Heads and venture north to Coolangatta, Rainbow Bay beach, Kirra Beach, Currumbin and to the amusement parks, so many memories of waking up sweaty in a tent and the sun shining through, kids screaming at the pool and riding their bikes. Bravo Suboo, I cannot wait to see more!
Talulah - featuring Nicole of Gary Pepper Vintage.
Jenny Kee - This reminded me alot of Kenzo, but I was just so ecstatic by this collection as it really is an above and beyond example of Australia's talents. The styling was just immaculate too. I so badly want to jump in any of these outfits and be adorned with headdresses and statement jewellery.
And last but not least, Ksubi feeding my hunger for androgynous fashion (there was a sickly absence of it this year)
I know, I know... this is ridiculously late. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia was actually held in Late April-early May but I have been such a busy bee with uni and all. I was surprised at how boring alot of the shows were. Obviously only a handful stood out for me. Ellery and Zimmerman were just - meh. I was really missing the absence of Dion Lee and Josh Goot. Alot of missing designers this year, is this the effects of the GFC? I think so. This is a scary future over the next few years for up and coming designers that want a break.
Anyway let me know who were your high-lights x
