MBFWA 2014 Wrap Up Day Three

Michael Lo Sordo

With a fresh take on wrapped tailoring, Michael Lo Sordo presented his sixth consecutive MBFWA showcase in a delicious gelati inspired palette. Think raised surfaces, sea snake skins and exotic textures for the ultimate trans-seasonal collection. The iconic designer played with 3D kitting technology with an edge of luxury in an exotic installment.

Talulah

Delivering a playful and chic collection, Talulah featured printed swimwear and beachside pieces.

Titled 'Crystal Tropics' guests were swept away with warm colour ways and original prints from their 100-piece collection.

With simple silhouettes and colourful prints the collection is easy and covetable for the holiday destination consumer.

Cameo

Seeing show after show, the process can become somewhat mundane, but walking into Cameo's runway showcase, the vibe embodies all that is MBFWA.
The music was electric and the models embraced a 'go-get-them' attitude which complimented the visionary designs of their signature aesthetic.

Exploring prism shapes, holographic prints and neon colours the direction was clear, polished and sophisticated.

Galanni

Premiering at MBFWA this week, Galanni is all about royal tones of gold and all that shines. With figure hugginh silhouettes in three quarter and floor lengths, the fabled label's collection is timeless, sophisticated and with strong classical hints.

Swim | Group Show

Bondi Bather

Inspired by light, movement and the depth of the ocean, Bondi Bather delivered an array of printed swimsuits and separates with a sandy naked show stopper for the last edit.

Carena West

Metallics, purple tones and floral prints made up Carena West's collection. The barely there cuts and styles are unforgiving and quite daring, best to be left for the brave.

Surface Too Deep

Pastel tones, khaki green, mustard and feminine frills made up the beachwear collection by Surface Too Deep. Have we seen it before? Yes, but with a modern day cheeky twist the line is fun and somewhat fresh.

Cleonie

With European influences, the collection was heavily inspired by a vintage glamour. Simple, feminine and uncomplicated, this was the basis of the interchangeable line without the fuss.
