Yeojin Bae Tresses

Redken for Yeojin Bae at RAFW

I’ve already looked at Yeojin Bae’s collection as shown at RAFW this year and told you why I adore her work. So let’s take a closer look at the look Redken Hair Director Daren Borthwick created for the show. Key words her uses to describe the woman he had in

RAFW: Roopa Pemmaraju ‘Royal Edition’ S/S 11/12

Inspired by the regal past of her home country, Melbourne-based designer Roopa Pemmaraju looks to India’s Nizams for her upcoming ‘Royal Edition’ collection as showcased at fashion week. Her second “rewarding” showing at RAFW was marginally less stressful than 2010′s debut. Last minute drama ensued when the model’s footwear was

RAFW: Shakuhachi Tresses

Cloud Nine & Oscar Oscar for Shakuhachi

With its youthful energy and nearly-neon brights, Shakuhachi‘s collection succeeded in capturing the essence of a modern summer. The show’s hair director, Paloma Rose Garcia from Oscar Oscar for Cloud Nine, managed to take a break from the previous day’s hair trials to let me in on the look. Inspired

RAFW: Friend of Mine Tresses

Redken for Friend of Mine

Friend of Mine‘s Rosemount Australian Fashion Week Show kicked off with white lace, leather harnesses, itsy bitsy bleached denim shorts and a vintage, rock and roll attitude. In keeping with the youthful rebellious look hair director Philip Barwick for Redken says the look, “has some real cheek about it”. So

RAFW: Arnsdorf Tresses

Redken for Arnsdorf

Jade Sarita Arnott’s label Arnsdorf was the first of the Melbourne labels to hit the official runway at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. The collection, which possessed a resort vibe, was defined by Indian-style tunic shapes and Arnsdorf’s signature shirt-dressing. Tropical paradise hues of iced mint and fuschia punctuated crisp whites

RAFW 2010 Wrap

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 Alex Perry).

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:

Roopa Pemmaraju presents her latest resort wear and swim wear collection titled “Beach¬†Goddesses” at RAFW 2010. The Indian-born, currently Melbourne-based designer has built her label upon floaty kaftans, bright colours (this collection features sunny yellow, a splash of red and sky blue predominantly) and the creation of uniquely mesmerising prints.

Dhini ‘Mughal Empress’ SS10/11 at RAFW

Dhini re-visits the 1500′s Indian Mughal Empire for her upcoming Spring Summer 2010/11 collection yet somehow translates this into an ultra-modern look. Having created an intricate digital print inspired by the distinctive architecture of the time (think Taj Mahal), Dhini then applied pleating and draping techniques to luxurious silk georgette

Lui Hon Spring Summer 2010/11 at RAFW

Lui Hon‘s Spring Summer 2010/11 collection titled “So The Wind Won’t Blow It All Away” is evocative of fragility. Some pieces were literally hanging by a thread. His complex layers were rendered in sheer, asymmetrical and ombre dyed fabrics. Nudes, dreamy blue greys and crisp white were set off by

Arnsdorf Spring Summer 2010/11 at RAFW

Arnsdorf at RAFW

There’s much to be said for picking a few sublime colours and letting simplicity and cut speak for themselves. Arnsdorf‘s Jade Sarita Arnott presented a collection of block coloured frocks in moss green, dusty orange, golden tan and lilac with the addition of an abstract digital print broke up the
