Ellery S/S 11-12

Abstract tailoring and a play on oversized pieces, Ellery’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection drew inspiration from David Hockney’s contemporary artwork. Entitled ‘The Second Marriage’, Ellery fused her signature cool, sexy and quirky aesthetic into modern yet classic pieces. The waists on skirts and dresses were nipped in while shoulders were exaggerated. As one of the hot tickets at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, Ellery’s  front row was the place to be seen. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the bright yellow coat and gown! Two of my absolute favourite looks from the week…

Camilla and Marc S/S 11-12

Alex Perry S/S 11-12

Entitled ‘Cuban Princess’, Alex Perry’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection was a vibrant feast for the eyes. Bright Colours, floral prints and hoop earrings brought the Cuban inspiration to life. There were sequin embellishments and flowing chiffon skirts ready to cut a fierce rumba on a steamy Havana night. And don’t forget exquisite wear – of course the most glamorous evening gowns of RAFW were to be found at Alex Perry! Perry always creates effortless, fairytale, sophistication…
