Alas, in a chaotic scramble of designers, models, editors, bloggers and make up artists, Australia’s largest fashion event has come and gone again! In the midst of a hectic mid-week, I’ll keep it short and sweet but not without sharing with my fellow fashionistas, my favourite collections from the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, held in Sydney last week.
Fashion Week veteran and the godmother of the Australian fashion industry, Carla Zampatti kicked off the event with a burst of bright meadowy shades of yellow, pink and blue, coupled with clean lines to infuse a modern touch to classic silhouettes. Bubblegum pink heels peeking from under each ensemble added an adorable twist to this elegant collection… Photo: Lucas Dawson Photo: Lucas Dawson Photo: Lucas Dawson
In complete and utter contrast is the strikingly bold, unapologetically unique collection from Romance Was Born. An unlikely marriage of juxtaposing elements: tribal inspirations meets futurism, kaleidoscopic colours meets uniform black and angled sharp lines meets oversized, carelessly draped fashions, calls on all the eccentricities of a sci-fi, parallel universe, in a good way of course!

…and finally a throwback to what you might now know as my favourite era in history. Johanna Johnson had us in awe of the grace and glamour of the old Hollywood charm. Cloche hats, feathered collars and effortlessly seductive gowns does justice to all the glitz of the 1920s… Photo: Lucas Dawson Photo: Lucas Dawson Photo: Lucas Dawson
Which concludes the end of my super speedy edit of the top must-see collection of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia! Hope this has been an uplifting part of your mid-week and don’t forget to share your favourite picks from our Aussie designers!
