Monochrome looks are back big time. – White tops, blazers, skirts and pants – denim or silks, teamed with stripes or polkas, or teamed with a leather jacket.

Fluffy Jackets

Faux or no, we’re not entirely sure but soft coloured or beige jackets and coats ruled during cooler evenings.

Enduring and stylish, black leather dominated in bags, skirts, biker jackets et al.

A sea of applique and printed floral  made the AFF marquee look almost like a moving garden of fresh spring flowers.

The Black Bag

There was plenty of eye-candy for bag-lovers to spot, but the absolute favourite bag trend was for black leather shoulder bags.  Clutch and bucket bags hit the mark too, but the black shoulder bag dominated as the perfect colour contrast for those wearing the all-white look, florals, or just about anything else!

Big sleeves, big wide pant legs, big fluffy jackets, big-wide layers, large belts and belt buckles, huge lapels and oversized bomber jackets – save for smaller bags, the trend to big is unrelenting.

More than a drift, red was out in force, both in clothing – whether in florals or blocks – and accessories, for both men and women.



Finally, we couldn’t honestly complete this trend report without mentioning GFashCollective. He’s one hot trend in himself. He travelled to the fashion festival from Melbourne and he embodied  every eye-catching trend, every day. His name is Grant and his handle is @gfashcollective.
