The third day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia featured a stellar line-up of new and emerging designers, as well as respected, established designers, including Macgraw, Roopa, Hansen & Gretel, Bec & Bridge, and the emerging designers of the St. George NextGen Showcase.
The first thoughts that went through my mind following the Bec & Bridge show was “where can I buy these?!”. The Bec & Bridge girl is cheeky, bold, alluring, and of course, a bit of a rule breaker. She is the ultimate cool girl (without even trying). Fiery reds, azure blues, touches of pink, and black dominated the palate, whilst soft silks, lace and frills balanced the collection. The collection includes tailored pieces showcased along side party dresses. Cool-girls across the country will be fighting for this collection once it finally becomes available.
Kicking off day three with a bang, the sister-duo behind Macgraw delivered a collection of sharp tailoring, whimsical silhouettes, an bold patterns. I don’t know about you, but with the minimal makeup, classic design flourishes, and bold tailoring, I was getting some serious Britpop vibes.
One of the most exciting showcases of the event has to be the St. George NextGen showcase, which features an array of emerging Australian designers. By connecting these talented newcomers with experienced industry professionals, the goal is to help these designers hone their skills and elevate their profile in the industry. This years featured designers were Isabelle Quinn, Meredith Bullen, Sarah Hope Schofield, Stanzee, Stephanie Henly, and Victoria Bliss. The show was enthralling, and it’s exciting to imagine how these designers will progress in the industry. View the entire collection here.
