It’s no secret that I love brands from all over. Global fashion has always intrigued me because I think each designer’s background, upbringing, and travels all reflect back into their garments and style providing a special, unique signature. During New York Fashion Week (NYFW) I had the pleasure of attending the Fashion Palette show which focused on 11 designers from Australia.
The Fashion Palette show had no shortage of wow-factors. Almost every type of fashion had a moment to shine from sustainable, handcrafted leather bags by Avery Verse, exceptional athleisure from Saski Collection, and gorgeous gowns by Elle Zeitoune.
Sequins and shine were the name of the game for both DA by Daniel Alexander and Bronx and Banco who utilized glitzy fabrics, luxurious ruffles/accents, and bold short hemlines. Elliatt and Harvey the Label served up a “ladies who lunch” vibe with pretty pastels, lace, fringe, and delicate lines.
On the other end of the spectrum, we had Jagger & Stone who was providing intricate large collar statement necklaces, cinched corsets, tartan plaid, & to-die-for lace-up boots. For Santina Nicole femininity was the name of the game. Figure flattering dresses for all occasion took center stage as stunning dresses in racy black to angelic white came down the runway. The Blonde Republic gave me my fix for trendy neutrals, bodysuits, and great pieces for layering. For the brand NNCY, there was a spectacular display of sun hats, breezy maxi skirts, and flirty dresses.
The craftsmanship, diversity, and talent from each of the brands were undeniable. Judging from what I saw at Fashion Palette, if there ever becomes an Australian Fashion Week, I will be more than happy to attend.
Until next time, always be kind.
