Famous For Fashion: High Street Edition

If there were three key trends to take away from the Famous for Fashion Series High Street Edition; they would be sequins, sheer and lace. There was an air of old Hollywood glamour about the collections, set-off by short black and white clips throughout the show.

Arabella Ramsay paired her take on sequins with a folk aesthetic. Knee high socks, Peter Pan collars and paisley prints with a little fur and leather thrown in for texture.

Moss & Spy focused on lace with a metallic sheen. They showcased a mostly monochrome collection, with tailored 50s cut dresses and ruffled pencil skirts keeping the look very clean and classic.

John Cavill experimented with all three key trends, blending tough and feminine. Sheer fabrics covered with embroidery contrasted with the leather and long sequinned gowns.

et al knows what Melburnians want. Black and more black. Models carrying umbrellas were wearing voluminous black pieces in wools, leather and mesh fabrics. The sheer blouse with a full-length pleated skirt was a favourite.

Lisa Barron took to the catwalk with a femme fatale feel. Dark silk and sequinned outfits were well structured in flattering firm cuts.

Carla Zampatti also stuck to a monochrome palette, adding a little interest with funky prints. Sheer, soft layering and ruffles adding a delicate touch.

Nicolangela came to the party showing off silk dresses with pops of purple and red, lace gowns and plunging necklines. “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” was the perfect soundtrack.

Heavy metal sequins were the highlight of Charlie Brown, with an elegant full-length gold gown and a grey frock with cascading ruffle sleeves.

Lisa Ho started with a fun strapless blue and white print maxi dress. Thick flat ruffles created ripple effects on dresses and pleating teamed with off the shoulder gowns gave it a slightly Grecian vibe.
