Fashion Week 2013 – New Generation








On Friday my stylist and i had the honour of attending fashion week and sat by the runway at the New Generation show. I am happy to report it included a stunning mix of designs from emerging and established Australian designers:

The Letter Q, Tristan MelleDesert Designs, Faddoul,

Jamie Ashkar and Zhivago were clear stand outs for me.

Key Trends:

The grey sweatshirt fabric is being used in some interesting ways,
still a lot of pure white and block colouring, Mesh panels, Flesh and skin tones, plenty of  zippers and zip off pieces, flamingo Pink was big and i guess we’re still trending on spikes because there was a tonne.

Other notable events:

Betty Tran’s intro vid was very elaborate and gave a sense of class above the other brands.
Zhivago had my attention with pointed shoulders & a tonne of sequins. An extremely edgy and young look that flowed across their day and evening wear with a consistent military theme. Extremely wearable.

Shout outs:

To my favourite Aussie model Rachel Rutt who was as beautiful & graceful as ever.

And to Natalie & Sarah who’s personalized lollipops were the highlight of everyone’s gift bag.
