Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – Day 2

Photos by – Yunn Chin Photography

Monday was the day that we got into the real swing of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week; with shows back to back, celebrities out and about, bloggers from all over dressed to impress and an army of photographers ready to attack with their long intimidating cameras.

We started the day bright and early from 8am and ended it right through to 9:30pm (Oh yeah, it was one long day, especially when your in 5 inch heels hahaha!).

We saw a total of six amazing runway shows:

AURELIO COSTARELLA

Soft flowing feathers, embellishments with detailed sequenced beading, colours of fuchsia, orange and gorgeous limes shouted 1920s parisienne glamour.
Gowns with feminine bodices, clean lines and light fabrics flowing so delicately down the runway. The collection was the right balance between femininity and strength.

STRATEAS. CARLUCCI

Sleek, long lines, different textures with a greys, navy and whites, this collection oozed sophistication at its best.
A mixture of textures from leather, knits, wrinkled sheer, layered fabrics and quilted jumpers stated a unique exploration of aesthetics and visual textures.

BY JOHNNY

My first encounter of By Johnny was Fashion Weekend and if you have followed me from the start you must know how obsessed I am with the label. Unfortunately I’m not the only one, the show had reached capacity and I was left outside only dreaming of what could be haha! But luckily Chin got photos so it was still a win win.

The collection was filled with pastels, ice cream swirls, bright pops of orange outlined with a contrasting black and white.
In all honestly it was a collection that I didn’t swoon over, however, who am I to comment when I didn’t see it in person. Whatever the case, by Johnny has left an imprint on my mind and I will always constantly be on the look out for their new creations.

GAIL SORRONDA

This was the first time I had seen one of Gail Sorronda’s collections and it was amazing!!!

Reminding me of my childhood designs with cute subtle floral prints and soft bubble sleeves. The delicately textured fabrics, layered pleated sheer mesh-like material with slight glimpses of houndstooth print through the collection. Unforgettable co-ordinates, ethereal and edwardian like pieces ignited a flame of “NEED” in my subconscious.

The collection left me desperately wanting more! Definitely unforgettable.

PHEONIX KEATING

Known for lady gaga’s crazy outfits, Phoenix Keating’s collection had a distinct difference from the rest.

Structured and edgy, the matador like themed collection was visually eye catching and daring.
For me the collection had left a commanding mark on the runway compared to the collections before it.
