Style Melbourne

RAFW 2010 Wrap

Some observations from the fashion week that was…

Going strong: The colour lilac, cat’s eye sunglasses, specialist digital prints, all manner of transparency and sheerness, daytime leather, unstructured drape (and the lovely sunshine harbour-side).

Going, going, gone: Harem pants and playsuits, especially drop-crotched varieties. Thank the fashion gods.

Best gift: Crisp green Granny Smith apples courtesy ‘by johnny.’ at the super-late New Generation show (seriously after a diet of chocolate, and coffee this is very welcome).

Saviours of the week: Sneaky ballet flats in the handbag (chatted with a French fashion journalist who was amazed we were all wearing heels), life-saving paella from Nando’s, Perrier water and an unending fount of lattes in the media room. All of the jovial lovelies I caught up with or met along the way.

You can find all of our coverage of the Melbourne born, bred or based labels on show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2010 by clicking here. Or visit our fanpage for more photos of others.

What were your favourite Spring Summer 2011 collections across the Australian Fashion Week schedule?

Nice to see the big names in Australian fashion are interested in its future. Front row at the New Generation show; Wayne Cooper, Peter Morrisey, Sass & Bide's Heidi Middleton (out of frame at left, Alex Perry).

Wish I was in a better position to show you more photos from a.concept by Anthony Capon!

Emma Veall was one young Melburnian who showcased her range during New Generation.
