26 Apr HEY HEY MBFWA
Fashion Week: isn’t it every girl’s favourite week? Well we all know what my answer is to that one and yes I really wish it was all year round. The vibes are amazing and the street style is even more so – if you are walking around Carriageworks in between shows you just don’t know where to look. So much fashion, so much individual style, ugh it’s all too good.
I was lucky enough to attend this year’s MBFWA in Sydney and whilst I’ve attended Fashion Week before, this year was my first year actually covering the events. I couldn’t have been more excited or snap happy but the photos here on the blog just don’t do all of the amazing outfits we captured justice. While I sit here and recap it all for you, I’m day dreaming about next year’s shows already… aaahhh. But here we go, fasten your fashion seat belts.
MBFWA Day 1
I excitedly kicked off my MBFWA Sydney shows with the highly anticipated Han studios show. Why so hyped? HAN designer, Khim Hang had teamed up with the oh so amazing Margaret Zhang and had her on board as the Creative Director for this show. Khim’s designs mixed with Zhang’s vibes who wouldn’t be excited. The looks at HAN we very relaxed and very simple. Slouchy styling mixed with effortless thrown together looks.
Theme this year: Egyptian. We saw a lot of gold, black, white, sequins and some pops of colour thrown into the mix all matched with strong feminine shapes. If you looking for something to wear next time you the town, Zhivago has you covered. The pieces shimmering down the runway this year were all eye catching, all amazing silhouettes and all party pretty.
MBFWA Day 2
Probably with the most specific theme of this year’s show, Wang Yutao had recreated the 60’s & 70’s in his bright & floral collection. Flower embellishments and pop art prints were back. Swing silhouettes and boys in scarfs dominated the show and while I’m not sure you’ll be seeing a Head-to-Toe Wang Yutao look on the streets anytime soon, the mix and match possibilities are endless.
What girl doesn’t love an immaculately constructed couture gown? So the excitement waiting to view an entire collection of such beauties was huge. Galanni are Australia’s much loved version of Versace in terms of glitz and glamour and their gowns just as exquisite. To my absolute delight, another collection based around black, white, gold & nude tones! Galanni you’ve absolutely stolen my heart with this year’s showing.
Group Swimwear Show
Pulling some big new comers in the Australian swimwear game, the group swimwear show was a hit. FELLA swim, Jewels & Grace and Zingiber were only a few of the labels presenting but by far were the three designers that jumped out at me in this show. Skipping over the usual horrendous floral and ugly colourful prints, these guys were bringing style back to summer time skin with block colours in eye catching designs.
