MBFWA OUTFIT: PART ONEThursday, April 23, 2015
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia ended about a week ago, and I had the absolute pleasure to attend the shows of some of my favorite Australian designers, like Manning Cartell, Alice McCall, Ixiah, Raffles (Any Step was my favorite designer from that collection - I got to chat with them backstage), Jayson Brunsdon, Bianca Spender, Galanni, The Innovators (I loved Worn), Swim Runway (shout out to Jewels + Grace for putting me in front row!), Zhivago (loved the shoes and set music - but more on that later), Leonardo Salinis and so on. I also loved seeing international designers on Australian shore, notably TOME from New York and Wang Yu Tao from China.
In terms of production, I was absolutely moved by Jayson Brunsdon - the first and only time this year a designer got my heart racing. The set was gorgeous - as you walked in, buckets of red roses were lying in the middle of the runway next to white benches. The theme was, evidently, Romance, and the collection was made up of dresses and suits in reds and blacks. The music was also about celebrating love, and towards the end of the show where the models came out in a line together, red confetti started falling from out of nowhere - it was a shower! I stole a red rose on my way out - I hope you don't mind, Mr. Brunsdon!
Here is a breakdown of what I wore:
Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse heels
JAG 'Audrey' skinny jeans (it's on sale now! wee)
Samantha Wills necklace
Samantha Wills Bardot ring in white and gold
