Yesterday saw the penultimate day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia! Not to be one to break with tradition, here is an overview of Sydney Social’s faves from the day!
Congratulations to Nancy Pilcher, Sass & Bide, Nicholas Huxley, Jenny Kee and Zimmermann who were tonight celebrated for their amazing contribution to Australian Fashion as the 2013 nominees for The Australian Fashion Laureate, presented by The Weekend Australian Magazine. The winner will be announced in an exclusive event in May.
BLESS’ED ARE THE MEEK
Finding inspiration in the heart of Australia and the works of Australian artist Murray Fredericks, Bless’ed are the Meek showcased a collection of athletica and sports luxe in a monochromatic palette highlighted with original digital prints.
The label’s sophomore showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia was a lineup of wearable looks by designer Sue Di Chio that embodied the brand’s resort sensibility and relaxed-chic style.
Bright young talents Elissa McGowan, Inder Dhillon, Leroy Nguyen, Paul Scott, Vinh Nguyen and Ying Yuan showed their accomplished creations today. Tomorrow’s style stars in the making.
Another exciting debut effort from a fledgling local talent. Phoenix Keating’s couture capabilities and avant garde approach to design caught the eye of Lady Gaga.
For Spring Summer 2013/14 Haryono Setiadi presented a cerebral collection, focusing on innovation and design to produce a fresh take on the modern wardrobe. Sharp tailoring and clean lines were executed with skill and unique precision.
Mulholland’s runway show will be her first at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Inspired by resort life and ’80s jet-set glamour, Mulholland’s latest run of signature exuberant prints and lively colour palettes have her finding a confident fashion stride.
The label, showing for the second time at MBFWA, described the look of their Spring Summer offering as a ‘techno-chic girl living in a floral fairytale’. Barbarella-esque ’60s silhouettes, retro space-age aluminium, perspex and neoprene are all in the mix.
What’s happening tomorrow on the final day of MBFWA:
Australia’s biggest names in fashion will come together tomorrow for a spectacular grand finale. In a fashion production on an unrivalled scale the Hello Elle Australia show will present an edit of the week’s highlights plus, see the Australian designer lineup completed with Colette Dinnigan, Josh Goot, Willow, Nicola Finetti and Zimmermann.
Stay tuned for a final run down from The Carriageworks for MBFWA!!
