Australian Fashion Week - Spring Summer 2012/2013
Some of us weren't lucky enough to attend Australian Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012/2013 in Sydney last week, but the good news is that Beach Tomato Editor, Kirsty Hathaway, has done all the legwork (and had the jetlag) for us and shared the best bits with Carina100.
I'm a huge fan of Australian fashion and think they have some of the coolest, most wearable collections going. But now it's over to Kirsty to give us the highlights of Australian Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012/2013....
Beach Tomato Editor, Kirsty Hathaway headed down under to see what was on offer both on and off the catwalks at MBFWA. And, in a country where sunshine takes precedence, there was barely a piece of black cloth in sight, with Alice McCall’s bright floral leading the way, going down the Babushka doll meets Hungarian florals route, giving an incredibly graphic, folky collection.
Colour really was the name of the game this season and fluro stormed pretty much every catwalk, if even for a look. Manning Cartell paired some serious neon pink with oversized shapes, sports luxe, pencil skirts and crop tops - a treat for the eyes and the senses and a definite look to be sporting this summer.
A bit more info about Kirsty Hathaway. Having worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years, starting her career at GQ and Vogue before moving on to Company magazine, as Fashion Editor, Kirsty Hathaway then embarked on a career fuelled by her biggest passion; the beach. With the launch of both Beach Tomato Magazine and The Beach Tomato Shack – the online shop home to the world’s best beach brands – Kirsty aims to target a fashion-savvy audience with an innate passion for travel.
Huge thanks to Kirsty Hathaway and Beach Tomato for giving such a great insight into Australian Fashion Week (for all of us in the other hemisphere!).
