Fashion Week Day 2

Fashion Week Day 2

It's always exciting to see if you'll find the next big thing to be debuting at the St George NEXTGEN show. This year featured a dramatic mix of designers presenting embellished and avant-garde pieces. The stand out however was Isabelle Quin who presented a collection of stripped back silk slips with corset tie up detailing, and bold stars throughout the collection on leather mini skirts, silky rompers and sheer dresses. This label is one to watch.

Gary Bigeni

The Gary Bigeni show was a stand out of the day! It was true to Bigeni's style, silk draping, bright colours, polka dots, and ties on the dress to fit the silhouette to your body. He introduced mesh silver metallic slip dresses, tanks and skirts, with matching metallic underwear worn underneath. 

Then of course at the end the eclectic Gary comes out with a big smile and an enthusiastic wave, with bright yellow hair resembling the yellow silks in the collection.

Hansel and Gretel 

Hansel and Gretel transported the audience into the jungle from when you first entered. Well lit leafy greenery was scattered throughout the seating, and the show opened with a leopard print shirt dress styled with a bright red shoulder bag. 

Their signature quirky style was accented with pastel plaid dresses, jungle print jumpsuits, and gold mesh tee's and dresses. Fittingly, jackets and tees featured red embroidery saying "stay wild child."

Bec and Bridge 

Set on the top floor of David Jones Elizabeth Street, Bec and Bridge put on a Meow Meow experience. Handsome waiters offered Aperol Spritz as we entered, with laser cut meow meow cocktail stirrers, whilst scattered "Mon Cherie" coasters and neon lights added to the ambience. 

The room was a grand setting to view the collection, with high ceilings and grand arch windows. The models walked out with sexy shirting, polka dot dresses with frill details, tailored pants and blazers true to the Bec and Bridge DNA. The show also debuted their eyewear collaboration with Pared Eyewear.

Zambesi opened with beautifully dramatic piano music to accompany an innovative and extensive collection of menswear and womenswear. Luxe fabrics such a sheer silk organzas and crocodile leather highlighted the voluminous shapes of the collection. 




Michael Lo Sordo 

Michael Lo Sordo gave a theatrical presentation which suited the theatrical style of his recent collection. Floor length pieces, and the use of blacks, patent leather, and a bold red created a moody feel while the models weaved in and out of perspex structures scattered across the runway.
