MBFWA Day One | ELLERY Runway Recap

Supermodel and mother, Gemma Ward opened the Ellery show in front of a star studded audience.

The Daily Telegraph reported that Kym Ellery brought the 27-year-old model back to the Sydney catwalk after almost a decade away, after Ward abandoned modelling in grief following the death of her ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger.

It was also an iconic moment as this fashion show was Ellery's last in Australia.

Starting off the night with a bang, JD Snake featuring Lil Jon's Turn Down For What and Katy Perry's hit Firework blasted from the speakers as the models strutted down the runway.

Though there was a little upset from a non-fashion-lover. It's no doubt that fashion and drama go hand in hand, but nobody was expecting this. Right at the end of the opening show a local man caused a scene on the runway. As designer Kym Ellery strutted her stuff down the catwalk to take a bow, the older and angry man caused a disturbing display of frustration. He was yelling and covering his ears and seconds later was escorted from the runway by a security guard.

Oh, and the collection was as dramatic as you could image. It was Parisian perfection with a vibe of being put together yet undone. It was a mostly monochromatic palette that let the silhouettes do the talking, with small injections of colour. Think metallic rose, burnt orange and the most beautiful shades of blue. If there's one thing Ellery's show cemented, it's the flares are back in a big way - and not just with pants.
