Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has once again come and gone, leaving us dreaming of summer days as we picture ourselves dressed in the resort season’s best and brightest looks – and there were no shortage of them.
Editors and local and international buyers alike coveted the tailored suits and floor-skimming dresses at Matteau, raved about the Bassike’s paint-splattered pants and tie-dye tanks, and were all about the summer day dresses and party minis Aje had to offer.
Speaking of Aje, the brand spearheaded by co-founders Edwina Forest and Adrian Norris opened the week of fashion as the official Mercedes-Benz Presents designer, with a picture-perfect show held at the newly unveiled Campbell’s Store.
Carla Zampatti rounded out the week with a show that championed the return of evening wear. It was here, back at Carriageworks, that models took their final walk as the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra played in the centre of the runway. Julie Bishop sat front row alongside Vogue editor-in-chief Edwina McCann, taking in the esteemed designer’s resort collection.
If you’re feeling as though you missed out on all the fun, Vogue has you covered with a behind-the-scenes look at the week that was via a video by Cinema Thom, incorporating runway footage by InDigital– meaning you too can marvel at styles you’ll likely see on the streets of Sydney this summer. From a prevalence of pink and a contemporary take on knitwear, to billowing balloon sleeves and dainty dresses, take note of all the week had to offer and commit to memory resort 2020’s top trends.
To go inside Anna Quan’s wearable presentation, which invited fashion week attendees into the Carol Crawford Sculpture Studio, see how Christopher Esber took holiday dressing to a chic new level, and take a walk through the Chinese Garden of Friendship’s cascading waterfalls with Double Rainbouu, watch the full video.
