The week has come to a close and the excitement of seeing what’s to come has been an thrilling visual overload...
Here are some of our favourite collections and our favourite front rowers...
Presented at The Box, Akira never fails to impress with his signature prints and colour on modern-oriental design. His traditional design with a theatrical twist were shown in two stories running through the collection. One was an all white (bridal appropriate) capsule featuring appliqué dresses with incredible tulle head wraps. The second theme were printed Japanese patterns and blooms combined with tropical florals featured on kimono style dresses. The outfits were completed with these amazing oversized feature neckpieces. Truly original and truly Akira. And that’s why we loved it.
This was the “collection of his dreams”. There were fishtails, horse hair, metallic stitching with embellishment on a monochromatic colour palatte. No need for colour to make a bold statement... The design and fabric spoke volumes. Styled by LA-based Australian stylist Sophia Banks Coloma... Bowie’s collection was breathtaking.
Yes she is back! It may have been 20 years since her last solo show. But Jenny Kee certainly brought back her iconic graphics with her SS12/13 collection. There were hyper coloured turbans, draped dresses, Aboriginal abstract patterns. Co-collaborating with the Romance Was Born duo Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett who styled and brought the bling with jewelled neckpieces, earrings, cuffs, and coloured Melissa pumps. We love a come-back, especially when it comes in the form of a print-party.
We loved this collection by Kirrily. It was shown off site at Sydney restaurant Neild Ave and with it’s industrial interior, made it the perfect backdrop for the collection. Inspired by Romanian gypsies... featuring sexy silhouettes in neutrals, magenta, white, black and chartreuse. The outfits look like a second skin and have been styled with the most amazing statement jewellery and headscarves.
Romance Was BornNo words needed really.
