Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia
The dust hasn’t even begun to settle on Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2019, held in Sydney last week . And while the attendances might have dropped off this year, the good news for Aussie womens fashion designers is that more buyers were present than in previous years.
The weather held out, and on some days it was even glorious. This made for great street style strutting and photography. There were fewer men in attendance on the street style hustings than in previous years and blogger numbers were down overall too. This was a fashion week for the die-hards of womens fashion and what they lacked in numbers they made up for in style.
There were eye-catching sparks of originality and definite trends, which we’ll share more about with you in another post. We will say now though, that for an election week, it was a little surprising that there was no sign of the slogan tee’s or political statements that had been so prevalent in previous years.
From the many off-site locations around Sydney, to the well-trodden path at Carriageworks, here’s what we saw. Our cameras were focused on them all: the designers, stylists, influencers, bloggers and the public who all have one thing in common. That is, a love of Australian womens fashion.
Here are our freeze-frames on the unrehearsed and sometimes surprising off runway moments from Australia’s biggest week in womens fashion. For us, it not about the clothes. It’s about the statement, the originality, the details that make the whole. It’s about the unplanned and unscripted moments that a rehearsed runway can’t hope to portray. There are as many style choices as there are influencers and as many fashion choices as there are labels. But it’s the people who make the magic come togther, allowing out cameras to snap interesting and evocative street style images. We thank them and showcase them here in the best street style shots from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2019.
