The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival in Sydney is a super accessible event, meaning that you don’t have to be an industry veteran or A-lister to enjoy the vibe. The three main shows include: Ready-to-wear; Australian Luxe; and Red Carpet Runway. Here are some of my favourite looks from the night:
Show 1: Ready-to wear
This included a few of my favourite designers, including Alice McCall, Aje, Dion Lee, Camilla and Marc, Bianca Spender and many more. One of my fave looks was from Macgraw, consisting of cute pink sets – perfect for your casual weekend wear. Their bell top and apron dress (also seen on @cocorocha) is a delicate mix of a beautiful lace and monochrome!
Show 2: Australian Luxe
Includes beautiful silhouettes and sharp sculptured tailoring from fabulous labels like ELLERY, Dion Lee, Josh Goot, Bianca Spender and Christopher Esber and many more. I am such a huge fan of Christopher Esber’s chic and minimalist style. All his pieces are so simple and yet elegant and can be dressed down for an everyday look and dressed up for special occasions. Love that stuff.
Show 3: Red Carpet Runway
This was my favourite show of the night and included big names such as Steven Khalil, Alex Perry, Johanna Johnson, Rachel Gilbert and Zhivago and lastly my all-time favourite Michael Lo Sordo. Even though it isn’t something you would wear along to your regular super market visit, they are all so dreamy that I would just wear them around the house when I’m home alone! Hahaha.
The show was full of beautiful embellishments, stunning fabrics and an amazing collection of Australian runway couture. Michael’s Lo Sordo’s beautiful, flowing and airy dresses were so stunning and dreamy. His designs get me every time and I JUST WANT ONE OF EVERYTHING!!!
The good thing about this fashion weekend is that anyone can attend! You dont have to work in the fashion industry or in media to attend. It’s a fun night out with your friends and for those who love fashion and want to see the latest trends and styles for the upcoming seasons. My ticket included front row seats, back stage passes and all night free flowing drinks and canapes at the bar! So, go on girls!! Make sure you get your tickets early for next year! Don’t miss out!
