Aurelio Costarella Spring/Summer 2014/15 If anybody knows how to inject a bit of glamour, it’s Aurelio Costarella. With bright fuchsia, tangerine and aquamarine tones intertwined with silk-like ostrich feathers and delicate sequin patterning, these are the kind of dresses that would bring any shrinking violet out of her shell. The movement of the models brought […]

MBFWA Streetstyle: Natalie Cantell

Natalie wears Bec & Bridge t-shirt (next season), Alex Perry skirt, Zara heels and Prada handbag All things considered, making a brocade midi skirt seem daywear appropriate is no easy task, yet Natalie makes it look so effortless; especially when paired with a fun printed tee, and those covetable mules from Zara.

Macgraw Spring/Summer 2014/15 One of the shows which I had intended to see, but missed due to being just slightly distracted outside, was Macgraw. Somewhat of a departure (or upwards transformation?) from their last collection, designer duo Beth and Tess Macgraw incorporated a heavy dose of polka dots, sailing ships and a thick bold stripe. […]

Bassike stripe dress, Witchery cable knit jumper (similar), Zimmermann chelsea boots (available here & here, Proenza Schouler PS11 For the first time in weeks, it finally feels like Fall in Sydney. Brown leaves line the footpaths, the rain has been relentless, and the mercury has begun to drop – so much so that I’ve had […]

Alice McCall ‘In my dreams we were flying’ Cruise 2014/15 at MBFWA

Alice McCall ‘In my dreams we were flying’ Cruise 2014/15 The Alice McCall aesthetic is so heavily entrenched; it’s fun, it’s playful, and just a little bit sexy. And McCall delivered. Her eponymous label, celebrating its 10th anniversary, certainly lived up to expectations; a hanging installation of planets, birds, and various other objects only giving […]

Dion Lee [II] Spring/Summer 2014/15 at MBFWA

Dion Lee [II] Spring/Summer 2014/15 Dion Lee is a master of construction, evidently nailing the art of carefully piecing together interlocking fabrics and weighty folded pleats with artfully placed slits; somewhat of a signature within his design process. Seamlessly picking up where he left off, Dion Lee showed a strong collection with a focus on […]

Michael Lo Sordo Spring/Summer 2014/15 At Michael Lo Sordo, we were treated to delicious silks in sorbet hues, almost good enough to eat. Finding a happy medium between the architectural shapes of Dion Horstmans sculptures (as seen on the runway) and sharp elements Lo Sordo’s aesthetic, Ryan Storer’s exclusive collaboration for the runway complemented each […]

Strateas Carlucci ‘Fracture’ at MBFWA

by jamie-lee on April 9, 2014, no comments

Strateas Carlucci ‘Fracture’ I started Monday morning with the best of intentions. Somewhere along the line I decided it was completely possible to head to Carriageworks for Kahlo, return to work, and somehow still make it back to Carriageworks for the Strateas Carlucci show. Of course in the hype of Fashion Week, I didn’t for […]
