Runway Trends at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia
There were loads of distinctive trends last week on the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Showcasing the best that fashion has to offer in “Resort Wear” from Australia’s top designers, here are the womens fashion trends that we couldn’t help notice.
1. White is Still the New Black
If you haven’t already got the message, after last week’s runway shows, you couldn’t miss this one. With only a few labels offering any more than a few options in black, white is the dominant colour for the next year.
2. Bright Block Colours
Womens fashion is brighter, bolder and blocked. There were more colour blocks than a lego set this year. And definitely more than florals, prints, or textured patterns.
3. Leather Everything
From over the knee boots, to belts and bags, leather seemed to be everywhere. Especially in colours!
5. Beloved Beige
The other big love affair this year is with beige. We saw it at VAMFF and it was hard to avoid at MBFWA.
6. All Tied Up
We predicted this one some time ago and we were right. They may have varied in their adaptations, but the tie-up trend was a biggie.
7. Big Round Sleeves
Big and round short sleeves, big and voluminous for long. Big sleeve love looks set to stay.
8. Retro Visions
Womens fashion constantly draws on its past. This year, echoes of the psychedellic 60’s, 70’s boiler suits and 80’s shoulder pads all made an appearance on the runway. Thankfully, not at the same time!
9. Crop the Top
Crop tops are are back, with Matteau and Aje elastisizing this womens fashion trend.
11. Sheer Delight
Transparent and sheer fabrics were featured by a number of womens fashion designers. The sheer look in Australian resort wear trends isn’t going anywhere soon.
