MBFF Emerging Designer Group Show Impresses

MBFF Brisbane's Second Show Tuesday Night

Fresh faces and fresh talent is what the fashion industry is all about; and didn't Brisbane deliver! The 2013 Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Emerging Designer Group Show was nothing short of impressive as eight up and coming labels put their best PeepToe –clad foot forward.

Long time fashion festival favourites, Molly and Polly Swimwear joined forces with Peony Swimwear and Playsuit to deliver a healthy installment of swimwear. Complete with cute props in the form of fishing rods, surfboards, snorkels and fluro floaties, the crowd was left dreaming of summer.

Erin Hassall Designs, A Jacksonian Era and Stokes Thompson Design provided a fresh and unique take on day wear combined with a touch of formality. Sinead James was all about power dressing with cheeky, modern and innovative basics.

Begitta returned to the stage following great success at the 2012 event with a slightly more sophisticated take on the iconic dream-like fairytale pieces. There's something to love about a floor length red number alongside the odd birdcage!

Also at the show were the best of Brisbane and Gold Coast student designers presenting their take on the relationship between fashion and media. Some were abstract and some were genius (QR code material included), but all were distinctive to say the least!

We're excited to see theses fresh faces making their mark on the industry in the near future! Stay tuned...
