Kahlo was one of our favourite shows of the week. Kahlo stepped their fantastic leathers up a notch by introducing beautiful iridescent metallics. Kahlo's combination of clean-cut minimalism with minty leather, metallics and that deliciously fluid looking fabric produced that synergistic minimal impactfullness, that understated-cool that Tasfia and I are always enticed by. We loved clever the fusion of otherwise very 90's silhouettes with some very modernistic elements. How deliciously rad is that off the shoulder double strap? :D

Dare I say, that my favourite aspect of fashion week, perhaps even more than the 'fashun' is being able to catch up with cuties that I seldom have the chance to see! Here I am with Mega babes Callie and Alex Mearing
Our day began with a flurry of feathers and sequins at Aurelio Costeralla. Any collection that uses bright pinks and greens has immediately got me tuned in. I loved the use of gradients warm and cool gradients combined my feathers. So many pieces I can imagine myself wearing if he right occasion presents itself.Strateas Carlucci show existed in a sect of the neo-gothic realm that I vastly enjoy. I was definitely intrigued by the beautiful tailoring consistent throughout the collection, the zip details and the LEATHER!
Here I'm wearing: dress GAIL SORRONDA, shoes STELLA MCCARTNEY, bag 3.1 PHILLIP LIM,
The final show of the night was Karla Spetic - An off location show at a local swimming pool. Coincidentally, this was another collection inspired by the mysticism of the world that lies beneath - however with a vastly different perspective. Karla's collection maintained her fundamental sense of a playful innocence and gentle romanticism while integrating beautiful fluid silhouettes, marble patterns and mollusc-like frills and pleats all reminiscent of the wonders of the aquatic world. I am terribly inept at judging a collection objectively. Frankly, when I am at a show, the major thing in my mind is, which of this pieces would I love to wear/buy - what seduced me most about this collection is that I would love to own just about everything!
