When it comes to Fashion Week something I am guilty of is only really concerning myself with the New York, Paris, London and Milan shows, despite the fact that there are now well over 100 Fashion Weeks around the world. Australia Fashion Week, held in Sydney, concludes today and considering that Oz has brought us an array of great designers over the years such as, Sass and Bide, Josh Goot and Collette Dinnigan, I thought it was about time I checked it out. Here are the two collections which really stood out to me:
First up is the label AJE which is made up of two designers Adrian Norris and Edwina Robinson. The design duo’s attention to detail is clear to see from the intricate sequin patterns featured on several of the looks in their show. Many very wearable, beautiful and extremely feminine pieces have been slightly frayed in places to give the range some edge, a look AJE prides itself on. To see the full collection click here.
Then came Alice McCall’s show on Wednesday. McCall’s eponymous label has been on the go for almost ten years and she credits Kate Moss and Diane Kruger as fans. Her SS’13 collection consists of flattering cut-out shapes and sandy beach like patterns against the organic style silhouettes resulting in a rather elegant outcome on the catwalk.
