Rosemount Fashion Week – Day One & Two
It may not be London or Milan; but Sydney contributes to the world of fashion in the best way possible – bringing an eclectic mix of designers, people and venues together to make one hell of a week in fashion.
One of my favourite Australian designers – Lisa Ho did not disappoint. The showcase was made up of beautiful creations that flatter a woman’s body not flaunt it, the designer said that her primary goal was to create pieces which consisted of “draping that clings to the contours of the body rather than overwhelming it”. The ‘draping’ designs were in beautiful nudes and natural earthy tones like teal and moss. STUNNING! The Jewellery was gold and bold – and my favourite design was the mini dresses with capped sleeves oh-so-feminine yet oh-so-sexy! Beauty Note: The low bun that graced the models heads were outstanding! A must as a new ‘do’.

After seeing the designs develop over the last few months, plus the fittings and tailoring last week, the show proved to beat my initial expectations and throw me a few surprises. I loved the colours and prints and thought that the designs were the perfect mix of wearable designs with high fashion embellishments. My favourite look of the showcase was the highly-textured print dress – AMAZING!
I also thought that this dress had all the essential requirements for this seasons prettiest dresses; sheer, nude, ruffles and a flowy design.
Usage of a lot of teal coloured designs and some beautiful, complicated swim wear with lots of added detail. Perfect for the runway – not sure how the designs would hold up in the surf!
Hello avatar! As a massive fan of the film this show scored huge bonus points with me in terms of the creativity used in the hair and makeup of the models. Some great maxi dress and play-suits – more soft tones in nude, mint and peach with some eye-catching designs in animal prints and sequins. LOVE!
Not my style but fabulous all the same. Cargo pants and an entire warehouse of zips seemed to be the essence of the designs, very Lara croft. Did like the following dress minus the accessories –
Women’s Ready-to-Wear Group Show
An amazing collection from all four designers which involved a lot of very wearable designs in nude undertones and graphic prints.
Story By Tang
Mixed beautiful fabrics off lace and sheer mesh with more military inspired leather details. Very cute.
The go to designer for all party dresses, loved the super short numbers in hints of nude and pink. Will be number one on my list for all 2010 races attire. My absolute favourite –
Great staples for any wardrobe. Slight overkill on the double denim – not a real fan. Highlight for me was an amazing cowl neck dress (haven’t seen that style for awhile) in a gorgeous olive colour. Also loved the dresses in GREAT prints.
One word. Colour.
Loved seeing such vibrancy in it in comparison to many of the other designers only using nudes.
Bec & Bridge
Does nude in a way no other designer does – will be visiting their boutique V soon for some amazing wardrobe staples.
Lots of peek-a-boo panels which I’m not to fond of – The designs were very Dion lee. Great prints and colours. Loved the A-line skirts – perfect for the office.
Stolen Girlfriends Club
LOVED the black and gold contrasts in designs. Thought the designs were very creative and innovative however I probably wouldn’t wear much of the collection.
Camilla and Marc
More pale leathers which look amazing! Gives the traditional leather jacket a ladylike edge. Blah to the body con dress – so over it. I see it as a design for the unimaginative. The accessories were very 90’s and if you can pull them off then go for it.
LOVE! Another favourite Australian designer – am always pawing the racks at DJ’s. Amazing graphic designs in beautiful black and white prints. Beautiful wide cut pants Rachel Zoe would be proud off and lots of nude, teal, rose and sheer fabrics. Love! My favourite piece from the collection –
Not a huge fan of suede clothing and there were a lot if it in this show. Loved the sheer fabrics and graphic knits. HATED the high wasted bikinis.
Little Joe Woman
Hello safari! Very tribal, loved the crochet embroidery – very grandma just the way I like it! Again with many nude, sheer and floral fabrics. And chunky chunky jewellery!
Am in love with the designs printed in lilac. Lots of pretty ruffles and lace.
Hmmm very Olympian in the inspired colours, her use of a vibrant red was a standout to me.
Women’s Ready-to-Wear Group Show Two
Gary Yang Collection
Two words……….soooooooooooo preeeeeetttyyyy. So many sheer layers, so much purple and teal. The pink leopard print almost ruined her show for me – but not quite.
VERY sexy. VERY tough. Lots of animal prints and leather. Loved the mix of black, gold and sequins.
ugggg the name says it all – gees does our designers suddenly hate colour? Feral fringing on mini dress and tan items of clothing dominated the catwalk. Yawn.
Loved the colours; gold, pearl, mustard and pink – see nude but slightly coloured!!! Beautiful feminine fabrics in great short lengths and some very eye catching ruffles.
A very wearable collection – again lots of leather and sheer paneling.
Love Love Love !!! Everything about his collection took my breathy away – so feminie, so pretty, so AMAZING!!! Alex Perry is well and truly defining himself as the master of the most beautiful collection of evening gowns one could even hope to stumble across. Beauty Note: Loved the models fresh makeup and beautiful long, glossy locks.
