Australia Fashion Week Summer 2013: Street Style
Australia Fashion Week is fast becoming a must-watch event in the global fashion week schedule. As the likes of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and seriously stylish bloggers sit up and take note of the established and emerging Australian design talent, they're also lapping up the amazing street style on show at Australia Fashion Week Summer 2013.
Last year Beach Tomato Editor, Kirsty Hathaway, headed down under and reviewed MBFWA for Carina100 and got me hooked on Australian street style. This year I've been keeping an eye on the latest looks from outside the coolest shows (from London sadly, not Australia) and have fallen pretty hard for the couture meets streetwear/beachwear approach that the Australian style pack have been showcasing.
The global trends for summer, like monochrome, bold stripes (see how I'm wearing bold stripes), head to toe colour and de-constructed tailoring, are all here but mixed up with beach hair, sporty accessories, killer sunglasses and a seriously laid back vibe.
What's your favourite look? I'm loving the bold stripes!
