The fashion hysteria in Sydney at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (RAFW) is in full swing. Street peepers and uber-famous bloggers (Scott and Garance) are snapping away, the music is pumping, and the fashpack is tweeting as fast as their manicured little fingers will allow.
Day 2 at RAFW
Show of the day was definitely by dynamic duo/brother and sister camilla and marc. While I’d like to see the turban trend disappear forever, the soft shades, draping, and diaphanous fabrics were an absolute delight. Crazy about this collection. See camilla and marc S/S 2010 show photos.
Models at perennial fave Zimmermann wore wide, shiny silver metal chokers, straight, center-parted hair, and deep burgundy lips and nails. Many looks fused watercolor and abstract prints, for a very bold, very busy collection. I’ve seen stronger collections by Zimmermann in past seasons; this one didn’t speak to me. But the show’s timing coincides neatly with the designer’s New York pop-up, at 112 Greene Street, New York, NY 10012, which is now open until the end of June. See Zimmermann S/S 2010 show photos.
Love is definitely in the air—and the dresses—of Gail Elliot’s S/S 2010-11 collection for Little Joe Woman. But Elliot tempered floral prints and ruffles with bits and pieces of utilitarian edge, and armloads of bangles. See Little Joe Woman S/S 2010 show photos.
