Its that time of year again! When select media, fashion editors, paparazzi, glitterati, bloggers and fashion lovers unite for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. The coveted opening slot for this year has been given to the much lauded Toni Maticevski, who will kick off the week on Sunday night with what is sure to be a magnificent show of absolute splendour and glamour like those of his previous collections.
This year MBFWA has been changed to align with the international fashion calendar and is now the worldwide destination for resort collections, which will greatly benefit our designers in both media coverage and sales, plus...where else would be as good as here to show off resort clothing? And did I mention that Bella Hadid is flying in to walk the runway too??
With over 55 designers showing this year it is sure to be a week to remember. There is everyone from our darling wunderkind Phoenix Keating, our beloved Camilla, the crazy kids at Di$count Univer$e, the romantic Steven Khalil plus many, MANY more and to top it all off the Oscar De La Renta (Summer 2016 Collection) will be closing Fashion Week!
Something else I love about fashion week is the 'Next Generation' and 'Raffles' and 'The Innovators', which allows the next wave of young and emerging talent the opportunity to showcase their skills and ideas to the industry. It's not easy presenting at fashion week, but they are given an amazing chance which leads to amazing things for them and I personally can't wait to see what they bring!
Check back all throughout next week for news, interviews, runway photos and street style snaps from MBFWA 2016 brought to you by ME (below at the last MBFWA).
Now I just need to go and get my outfits sorted!! *Insert Anxiety*
