Tonight, for the 1st time in my life, i had the chance to attend an Australian Designers' Catwalk. I have to admit that i'm really impressed!
The event was very organized and different from the other i had seen so far. The volunteers were disciplined and helpful. All the designers presented pieces from their collections together. I found that great as i am used so far to individual shows that made us come in and out of the showroom all the time and ''fight'' for a seat. But of course, such things don't happen in Australia, since our tickets had seat numbers.
Plus, i loved the idea that all the show was under the styling of one Fashion Stylist (Peter Simon Phillips) and that was obvious as well at hair & make up. One highlight of the night was the live orchestra that played among the designers' part and it was amazing!
The whole show was exquisite. I loved the runway, it was like a luxury aisle. The creations were fantastic, all designers are really talented. Regarding the trends, cream, green and flashy colours are back in fashion. Medal cups at shoes are a must since almost all the designers used them. Linen, metallics and transparent material are the highlights of the upcoming spring. Οf course peplum tops were there too.
