Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney – Day 3

Photos by – Yunn Chin Photography

Hello Everyone!!!

We were hoping to post the photos from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on the week of the event but since it is our first time editing thousands of images, there has been a slight delay HEHEHE.

Day 3 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was just as crazy as the first 2 days.

We saw a total of 5 runway shows:

TALULAH

The Swim & Resort “Crystal Tropics” Spring /2014 collection presents a visual bohemian story, filled with soft feminine silhouettes, strong graphics; geometric and organic prints on silk fabrics and tasseled finishes.

A collection with playful shorts, one-pieces, cute separates, girly maxis and kaftans, styled with big beaded layers statement necklaces. Bold floral and leopard prints, pastels against black and navy with strong warm tones. The pieces are an essential to have for spring and summer.

LEROY NGUYEN

I was really excited to see Leroy Nguyen’s runway collection, from what I’ve seen from him in the past, his collections are bold, beautifully youthful, colourful and fun.
2014’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is Leroy Nguyen’s first stand-alone runway show and we see a different stylistic collection compared to the ones before it.

“Blue Rose” a collection inspired by the memorable fantasy movie “Pan’s Labyrinth”. Projected cool tones through baby blue pastels, royal blues, touches of purples and pinks. Rose prints and cuts really brings the designers “Blue Rose” concept to light.

CAMEO

Cameo is one of my favourite labels!
When I found out that their “Boggie Nights” collection would be presented at Fashion Week, I was determined not to miss it.
The Angular edges, minimalistic prints, beautiful green tones, lace and sheer textures.
Mature, strong and feminine silhouettes, Cameo always has a unique aesthetic to their designs, which you can spot from a mile away.

MATICEVSKI

Maticevski, Maticevski, MATICEVSKI! The more I see of Toni Maticevski’s designs, the more in love I fall. Everything about the collection; the colour, to the structure, the monochromatic prints, the bold midi skirts and the coats, oh the coats!!!!

GALANNI

Wildly romantic, flawless, elegant designs that shout the essence of pure glamour. It was a great way to end our third day into Fashion Week.

Sydney Fashion Weekend Runway

I’ve been meaning to post this for quite sometime, however, in the past couple of weeks reality had hit hard with assessments, bills and work. I had underestimated the full power of stress during assessments; it has been 5 years since I’ve studied full time.

I had contemplated if I should post this at all, since fashion weekend was some time ago but then I thought it would be a complete waste if I didn’t. Plus I didn’t want you guys to miss out on the trends that weekend. So as promised here it is…

Bec and Bridge 

Known for their affordable, modern and chic designs, Bec and Bridge did not disappoint, showcasing; leather, prints and lace on the runway. All favourable trends this year.

The “Sorrento Midi Dress”, evidently sophisticated with a vibrant, eye catching print, was my favourite from their Winter/Fall “Paradiso Bianco Capsule 12/13” collection.

Stylestalker

Blue toned floral prints, teamed with basic black and white; A balance of girly-chic and edgy. I especially liked the different textures seen, creating more of a visual depth in their collection.

Watson X Watson

The earthy tones and the infamous hat used in this collection, visually reminded me of the Wild West. I simply loved the navy jumpsuit styled with the hat.

A mixture of warm and cool colours, denim and soft fabrics, makes this collection a breath of fresh air.

Ixiah

This was the first time I had ever seen or heard of Ixiah and I fell in love! Their sophisticated clean lines seen in their co-ordinates and how their unique patterned silk flowed down the runway; what’s not to love!

Ixiah’s 2013 winter collection “Inscription” is definitely a collection I can see myself wearing.

Nicola Finetti

In his 2012/2013 Spring collection, we see soft beige, pinks and creams, along with sheer, soft and shimmer fabrics. Displaying his signature feminine designs accentuating the female figure.

“My aim is to give women the possibility to explore their inner self and embrace their femininity.” Nicola Finetti

Talulah

“TALULAH IS A UNIQUE AUSTRALIAN FASHION BRAND CREATED BY AWARD WINNING DESIGNER, KELLI WHARTON” http://www.talulah.com.au/page/profile.html

This collection showcases their signature bold and flirtatious designs using bright and colourful prints. My favourite was the white floral print dress, cut in a way, which made the skirt flow so effortlessly down the runway.

Hussy

This is a label that grew familiar with during high school and till now hussy manages to bring modern and feminie designs with a touch of edge.

The dress that caught my eye in this collection was the black one sleeve dress, with a shimmer top. The asymmetrical one shoulder trend is seen through the collection.

Natasha

True to its brand, the collection featured free spirited bohemian chic designs.

I loved their vibrant warm prints with floral designed patterns and trims. Their paring of the brown boots with the collection was a perfect fit; it showed how versatile their long dresses are, allowing you to wear the designs from day to night.

This was my absolute favourite out of the 10 collections shown. Showcasing cute peplum skirts with playful stripes and girly floral prints on dresses that accentuate the female form.

Using soft beige, mint, baby pink colours with a hint of metallic was the icing on the cake for their collection. I adored these designs so much that after the show I bought pieces from their 2012 summer collection.

Converted to a new follower, I can’t wait to see their new creations in their upcoming collections.

Christensen Copenhagen

This collection from Christensen Copenhagen was the right blend of sophisticated classy and chic. The outfits and dresses shown in the collection were prefect for day and nightwear.

The opening outfit was a metallic royal blue blazer and pant co-ordinate, which was incredibly stylish and edgy. I especially loved the modern geometric monochrome dress.

However, the stand out was the knitwear vest, styled with a simple white blouse worn underneath, leather pants and classic black hat. The collection was a prefect visual to conclude the 10 designer collections showcased in Sydney Fashion Weekend.

Stay tuned this week for the final edit on photos I styled and to check out some of the new winter outfits posts.
