MBFWA 3



I'm wearing: top KENZO (similar here and here
shoes ALEXANDER WANG

Day three was a killer one, jam-packed full with so many shows for me that I was afraid that afterwards it would all mesh together and no show would leave a lasting impression. Fortunately, Wednesday was home to some stellar shows that razzle-dazzled enough to induce a long-lasting impression. I can still remember in detail all the gems that captured my eye during the shows.

Day three was also the one and day that I flied entirely solo. That is, entirely without the twinster, Tasfia. Tas being a medical student had a pretty academically busy week so she could only make it to a few shows here and there and had to sit out from the fashion sphere entirely, on Wednesday. I wasn't able to exactly get as much as or exactly the type of outfit shots I'm usually after :O Nonetheless, I hope they are all to your liking.


My day began with the Dion Lee II show. Minimal, yet incredibly inventive in the way silhouettes were modified and remastered and the way in which layering was achieved. I was in awe of the entire show. So many pieces I need to bag for myself when they hit the racks!


Before night time shows, I took a quick break to change and escape the hell imposed by the Alexander Wang heels I was wearing all day. Here I am wearing: 



The delightful Emma Mulholland show - fun, youthful, quirky and tre-risque! So many pieces that I need to get may hands on!

The Duvenage show was filled with beautiful watercolour-esque prints and fluid metallics

NATURAL ORDER

Hey there cuties! I hope you've all enjoyed a splendid long weekend. Back here in Brisbane, it seems that the weather has forgotten that autumn is trending at the moment, and instead it is sporting all things summer! I'm all ready for the cooler weather, ready to dust off my leather jackets and coats and get some layering on but it feels as if a perpetual summer is what we're in store for in Brisbane :'(. 

Although, this prolonged warm weather does, I suppose owe to a few advantages here and there. For starters, it means I can wear cute little mini dress like this Shakuhachi piece all the more. I'm so smitten over this delightful floral-animal print fusion print that I have two dresses in this rad print. 

I've recently spiraled into a fresh new obsession - statement earrings :) These beautiful Bianca Mavrick Aloe Vera earrings are my current favourites

Tasfia is wearing her mystical new May the Label t-shirt. At first glance, the tops motifs to me feel strangely reminiscent of the Elizabethan idea of a Natural Order, and the circular nature of fate that is entrenched within Shakespearean tragedies :O So intriguing. Tas was actually back in Brisbane all of last week but she returned back to Sydney today! :'( Missing you twinne

MBFWA 2


Like last year, I've been trying to stall my Fashion Week diaries to ensure that you aren't bombarded with Fashion Week content all at once. Day two was home to a number of our favourite shows of the week (namely Michael Lo Sordo, Cameo and Maticevski) but was also the beginning of my downwards spiral of fashion week-related sloth. This begin with skipping all of my night time shows on day 2 (whoops!) x


I'm wearing: 
necklace MANIA MANIA 
shoes TONY BIANCO (similar here and here

Tasfia is wearing: 
shoes ALEXANDER WANG


Our day began with Michael Lo Sordo. Invariably, throughout the show I was in awe of the effortless-looking masterful construction of each piece and the seemingly uncoordinated layering of the pieces that mystically worked together so harmoniously. In a nutshell, the collection centred around taking traditionally highly structured, rigid silhouettes and reconstructing them into something fluid, relaxed and flowing, combined with playfully feminine silhouettes at low doses and a deliciously pastel-palette.

The We are Handsome show is best described by coco cabana meets an african safari. The show seemed to be an extension of previous collections, featuring natural yet seemingly mystical photographic animal prints. The show was vibrant, full of life (literally) and my only regret was that I didn't get the opportunity to play with that adorable snake :'(. 


The Cameo show was miraculously an amalgamation of mine and Tas's favourite clothing elements. The show beautifully progressed from geometric prints, to pieces with neon undertones and accents, to fully fledged neon pieces, to kaleidoscopic prints, to breton stripes and airy sheer pieces. Admittedly I am an incredibly biased spectator. I'm incapable of looking at a collection objectively. I only have eyes for what I would love to see myself in and this collection was abundant in such pieces!

The Maticevski show gravitated from monochromatic pieces to candy pinks to a flurry of tinsel-esque glimmer, neon orange, florals and geometric prints. However, the individual pieces in the collection did not seem disparate at all - they were all held together by Maticevski's breath-taking sculptural-esque craftsmanship that made each piece in the collection allude to a fantastical fairy-tale realm.
