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

One of the biggest trends in womens fashion at the moment is 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

Another runway trend for womens fashion this year is ties

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 a big trend this year

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.
