Fashion Week Australia

For those of you over here in the US oblivious to the midnight fittings, frantic last minute touch-ups and blisters occurring right now, I’m here to tell you that Sydney Fashion Week is in full swing. After several years of being involved in the madness, I get this year off. And even though the hours were painfully long and the work was hard, I really do miss it. Some of you may not be familiar with our Australian design talents, so this is an introduction of sorts. Here are a few highlights from the rebranded Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2012 so far.


Romance Was Born

This kooky duo opened MBFWA and they opened with a BANG! Romance Was Born always put on an impressive show, and this year was no exception. They took their collection, inspired by heroes of the Marvel comics, and created a theatrical treat which looks like it was exciting from go to whoa. Designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales ran the theme through every detail of the show, bordering their loud and fun clothing with outrageous styling and graphic backdrops, creating real-life comic book girls.

Romance Was Born

I’m quite proud of these guys, they often do crazy and outlandish apparel that could be accused of being more costume than fashion, which has always been fun, surprising and exciting, but inevitably you ask yourself: ‘would I really wear a crocheted octopus on my head?’ When you pull this latest collection apart however, it is really wearable and just generally fantastic.

See more here at Pedestrian TV. 

You may ask me “is the above really wearable?” to which I will passionately reply “YES!” Here is what I’m comparing it to, the Iced Vovo Dress from one of their past Fashion Week collections:

See what I mean? Fun, but I can’t see myself wearing it down to the local bistro this Friday night.

Iced Vovo

1. An iconic biscuit from American-owned Australian-based biscuit company, Arnott’s

2. A biscuit topped with two strips of pink fondant and a strip of strawberry jam, all sprinkled with coconut

3. Party attire for hardcore RWB fans



Zimmermann

Zimmermann really epitomize Australian fashion and is one of our most established, successful and iconic labels. Also a duo, sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann always show collections that are just achingly beautiful. This year, showing in the Koskela Showroom, their dreamy, delicate floral prints were set against a pale, ethereal room with a washed brick wall backdrop that complimented and emphasized their prints perfectly.

The swimwear they are so famous for around the world was sweet, fun and had a hint of 1950′s retrospect.

Gail Sorronda

I personally consider Gail Reid (designer of Gail Sorronda) one of the most talented designers to ever come out of Australia. Ever. Big call I know, but I do not make big calls lightly. She exudes a genuine creative curiosity that has solidified her signature style which heavily revolves around dramatic, and somewhat avant-garde silhouettes that somehow, in the most part, remain very wearable.

This collection is a whole new world for Reid who’s usually strict black and white only palette (other than a brief flirtation with chocolate silk two years ago) is no more. Apparently, fashion powerhouse Anna Wintour suggested Reid not to fear color, and now this year, she is diving into it.

Her polka dot flares seem to be reverberating through the web as a favorite, as well as bold, tiered, color blocked dresses and her ever surprising headwear.
