LAN YU

Lan Yu’s bridal gowns were absolutely Stunning!

The gowns were displayed on elevated boxes through a live installation allowing the viewer to walk around the designs. A mix of live models and mannequins were used to display the gorgeous gowns. Each of the 12 gowns represented a star sign, all beautifully designed with intricate fabrication, delicate beading and lace. We had the pleasure to attend the Lan Yu after party where we were able to view the gowns in closer detail.

The designs were simply amazing, I loved every single gown and I especially enjoyed the interactive installation in contrast to the typical runway show.

I had the great pleasure to meet the insanely talented designer Lan Yu and she was just as gorgeous as her gowns; incredibly graceful and elegant.

JAYSON BRUNSDON

‘Rio’ A collection filled with jacquard and silk dresses, with shimmer tones of earthy colours; this is a collection I adore. Exotically wild with golds, coppers, sequences and feathers; designs that translates the fun and the tropical environment of Brazil.

It was truly a breath of difference compared to the designs I had seen throughout fashion week.

MACGRAW

Oh MACGRAW how I adore you!!!

The peter pan collars, the puffed sleeves, the polka dots, the stripes, the print on print, everything about this collection is GORGEOUS!
This collection was one of the few that I could see myself wearing everyday. Current, youthful, fun, relatable and cute, I simply must have it all hahahaha!

IXIAH

I have so much love for this label!!!

The amazing designer behind Ixiah, Krystel Davis never ceases to amaze.
I have followed Ixiah for some time now and WOW! It has grown into an astonishing label with such a unique aesthetic, standing apart from the rest.
Debuting for the first time in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Ixiah pulled out all the stops with their signature detailing, tribal aesthetic, incredible fabrication teamed with bold and strong silhouettes.

It was incredible!

AJE

Reflecting on Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Aje by far had one of the best displays. A live installation showcasing their designs through live models blissfully relaxing around and under a Sahara-like cabana.
Peekaboo sheer fabrics with lace and detailed floral beading, the designs were beautiful.
We were able to walk around the collection and look at the designs closely whilst champagne and canapés were served. Viewers were able to freely converse about the collection, it was an interesting change of environment compared to the intense atmosphere at a runway show.

SONG FOR THE MUTE

Song for the Mute closed the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week with a daring and edgy Men’s collection. Grey tones with black and white layered aesthetic teamed with ribbed and textured coats. It was also interesting to see Lupe Fiasco close the show and he did it with such attitude and swag that only a Rapper embodies.

Masculine, intense, dark and structured designs; it was a great way to end our first Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

These breath taking dress from the Maticevski collection were definitely the stand out gowns from the night. I loved everything from the cut, the texture of the fabric and the electric colour. The design oozed sophistication, elegance and class.

Thanks for visiting and see you soon 😉

Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Sydney – Trends (Romance Was Born)

Photographer – Yunn Chin

Out of the four nights of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival, my favourite runway show was without a doubt the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia – Trends. It was a runway show that gave the public a first look into the 2013 Spring and Summer trends from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week before it hits stores.
Over 200 looks from over 30 internationally recognised designers, jam-packed into one amazing runway show. So popular, it ran repeatedly for all four nights of the event.

Romance Was Born opened the show with romantic, cute and intricate dresses and jumpsuits which reminded me of Alice in Wonderland.
Once I saw these designs I immediately wanted to put down the camera because I was in complete awe of how amazing the designs were. I could swear I was salivating a little (hahaha gross I know); all I could think about was getting my hands on one of these dresses.
Even though there were so many crazy and memorable designs from the show, I have to admit that Romance Was Born definitely burnt a lasting impression in my mind.

My favourite piece out of the collection was the first dress. I died when I saw it! The transparent cotton candy pink floral print, the oversized Peter Pan collar, the subtle attachments of pom pom like flowers and the perfect distribution of puffed sleeves was enough to bring my excitement on overdrive.

I can’t wait to show you the rest of the gorgeous and diverse looks from the rest of the show, stay tuned :).
