The schedule for Fashion Week includes long days that involve seeing multiple shows from almost every major Australian designer. Throughout the course of the week I estimate that I would have seen hundreds of different looks and with so much to see during the week picking my standouts at the end is always really tough. However these shows in particular had me wanting to buy up a storm.
This was the first show of Fashion Week and took place at the Cutaway in Sydney’s Barangaroo. I loved the whole grandeur of the show and the location was spectacular. It was a real highlight and was a great way to kick off the whole week. The whole collection was beautiful but I particularly loved the knotted tops in the collection. Just stunning.
I loved Rebecca Vallance’s show. It’s the first time that she has shown in Australia and I hope she comes back for seasons to come. Her collection had some really beautiful pieces that aren’t necessarily trend-driven but are classic, wardrobe staples such as beautifully tailored dresses and jackets that will last more than one season.
The location of this presentation was unexpected with it taking place in a yoga studio in Sydney’s Potts Point however everything was quintessential Christopher Esber. The dresses were all really beautiful but what I love about his work is the attention to detail such as one particular top with netting and ties at the back and a dress with knots all over it that I’m still dreaming about.
Dion Lee took his show to new heights by holding it in the Bloomberg high rise building in the Sydney CBD. It’s always hard to pick a favourite with Dion Lee because the craftsmanship on his garments is absolutely gorgeous. The detail on every piece is just so beautiful. He’s someone that I always look to for standout pieces and there were a few dresses there that were real showstoppers and I’m definitely bookmarking them for future events.
Bec & Bridge
One of my go-to labels for a party look is Bec & Bridge. Going to events all the time means I’m constantly on the look out for great dresses to wear and this particular collection had lots of great summer dresses in gorgeous colours that I could see myself in come summer time.
You know a collection is special when you see look after look come down the runway and want every single thing. This collection was so wearable and I could envisage several pieces in my wardrobe. Tome are one of my favourite brands and seeing their show definitely left me with some major outfit inspiration.
