Day 1 Australian Fashion Week
Day 1 of Australian Fashion Week and the highlight was Youkhana’ unique textile design.
Youkhana using a diversity of models delivered the most interesting runway show of the day. Inventiveness rather than wearability was the priority.
An infinitely more wearable while still being interesting runway show came from Alémais.
Alémais’ colourful prints went from baroque to the 60’s and back. The stars were the florals and geometric designs.
Also stars were the great shoulders and sleeves. For this collection the shoulders were exaggerated, and the sleeves tailored or billowing.
These are clothes to be seen in.
Other collections on the runway on Day 1 came from:
- St Agni – minimalist cool girl.
- Bondi Born – Australia’s answer to the Row.
- Yousef Akbar – body skimming silhouettes, volume, tulle, glitter, and sheen where some looks achieved modesty through layering.
- Asiyam – a stylish designer of modest attire and beautiful style.
- Maggie Marilyn – an eclectic collection of highly wearable daywear.
- Michael Lo Sordo – a go to for minimalist sheer after five wear.
The packed schedule delivered wearable clothes in muted and neutral tones.
It was Youkhana’ textiles and Alémais’ colour palette and silhouettes though that maketh the style on the day.
