LOTs OF bright hues, playfulness and flirty fun Marked the mood at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2012 in Sydney. We take a look
This segment of the Fashion Week Australia was special as it marked the debut of Oroton into the apparel line. The Aussie brand founded in 1938 and famous for its leather goods, handbags and accessories has finally branched out to give the fashion junta a first look at its first foray into clothing. Geometric prints, palettes of purple and orange and shirts with sparkly collars were the heroes of the collection, with Aztec prints, sequin dresses and swimwear also making a statement. The collection was described as polished but wearable, comfortable yet stylish, with a South American undertone.
Camilla Frank’s beautiful and colourful spring/summer collection, titled Gypset sure had the lensmen present at the venue going into a frenzy. The ramp was filled with what one would call an explosion of shades. Alll 45 models who walked the ramp were dressed in a riot of colours, enough to make any summer day special.A release by her fashion house termed Gypset as truly print-alicious, “fusing the wild and unconventional ethos of a gypsy with the sophistication and speed of the jet setter”. Embellishments of Swarovski crystals, sequins and beading are seen widely throughout the collection; lending a nice contrast to the bright hues of the prints.
