NIGHT THREE OF CANBERRA'S FASHFEST WAS A BUZZ WITH EXCITEMENT. THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT THIS CROWD LAST NIGHT THAT WAS EDGY, CHIC AND READY FOR SOME RUNWAY ACTION. THE LIVE MUSIC BY DOPPLER WAS VERY MUCH A HIGHLIGHT.

IS THIS WHAT MAD MAX WOULD WEAR NOW? SZN'S COLLECTION WAS A FUTURISTIC POST APOCALYPTIC WORLD FULL OF ARMY BOOTS, PAINTED FACES AND TRILBY HATS. I ALMOST HAD AN IMAGE OF A GOTHIC CIRCUS. I ADORE THE PRINTED STOCKINGS, THE TRAPEZE DRESSES AND THE USE OF BLACK AND WHITE.
EXPERIMENTAL AND DIVINE.

EDITION

THE MODELS OF EDITION GAVE US COLOUR TONES OF GREY AND RED ON GORGEOUS FABRIC AND THE SIMPLE DRAPING IS SO FEMININE AND MODERN, ALMOST ASIAN INSPIRED WITH A DASH OF GRECIAN. I ADORE THE BIG POCKETS IN AN ARM DISAPPEARING DRESS WORN BY MODEL ASHER CRAWFORD, THAT I WOULD WEAR ALMOST EVERYDAY. ANOTHER STAND OUT WAS THE OUT OF THIS WORLD SILK CHIFFON CHECKED DRESS WITH OVER SIZED SLEEVES WORN BY ANNELIESE SEUBERT. I GET A MODERN HEPBURN VIBE WITH THIS LUXURIOUS COLLECTION.

DISSONANCE
CUBES, CUBES AND MORE CUBES ON THE RUNWAY AT DISSONANCE. SCULPTURED FABRICS, INTERESTING SHAPES AND WEARABLE DESIGNED FILLED THE RUNWAY AND I ADORE THE AVANTE GARDE FEEL TO THE PIECES. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THE SILVER GREY JERSEY DRESS ON THE FIRST MODEL FEATURING A BOW OF FABRIC CUBES. A SHOW STOPPING GOWN WITH NEON GREEN AND BLACK CUBES ENGULFING THE SKIRT IS A TRUE MASTERPIECE. I AM IN LOVE WITH THE COLOUR PALETTE. THE SQUARE HOOP DRESS IS UTTERLY DIVINE AND THE SHEER GOWN WITH CUBES AROUND THE NECKLINE IS FABULOUS. I WON'T BE LOOKING AT CUBES THE SAME WAY AGAIN.





























 KAREN LEE
JERSEY DESERT CHIC IS THE FEELING I GOT WHEN THE GIRLS AT KAREN LEE TOOK TO THE RUNWAY. WITH ADVENTUROUS PIECES, GORGEOUS LAYERS, DIVINE ARM AND LEG WARMERS, KAREN LEE'S COLLECTION IS WARM AND COZY, FEMININE AND EDGY. BLACK DRESS WITH WOOL NECK ATTACHED TO YARN OF WOOL AT THE WRIST IS QUIRKY AND WEARABLE.

 4 MINUTES 33
FROM THE MOMENT THE FIRST MODEL WALKED THE RUNWAY FOR 4 MINUTES 33 I WAS IN AWE. THE WHITE COTTEN RIPPED PIECES SEWN ON THE TUNIC IS MESMERISING. MODERN CONSTRUCTION AND LAYERS MAKE FOR A PERFECT COLLECTION. TRULY STUNNING. CUTE SNEAKERS ADDED A TOUCH OF QUIRKY.























THEY TRIED! WE CAN FLY
A LITTLE 60S MOD , A LITTLE SCI FI IS THE AMAZING SPORTS LUXE COLLECTION BY WE LIED! WE CAN FLY. SILVER SWIM CAPS ADORN THE MODELS (A LITTLE ALIEN) AS THEY STRUT THE RUNWAY IN TENNIS SKIRTS, PEPLUMS, TUNICS, PLEATS AND JACKETS. MODERN CLEAN AND BRIGHT. HAVE WE GOT A NEW SCI FI SPORTS LUXE TREND HAPPENING???

 A.CONCEPT
THIS WAS A COLLECTION I'D BEEN WAITING FOR FROM DESIGNER ANTHONY CAPON. HIS A.CONCEPT ALL BLACK COLLECTION FEATURES LONG DRAPING COATS, MAXI GOWNS, BRAIDED ROPE AND SHEER YUMMY GOODNESS. HIS TAKE ON THE CONE BRA USING THE BRAIDING ROPE IS AMAZING. THE CROWD PLEASER WAS THE SHEER GOWN THAT LEFT LITTLE TO THE IMAGINATION, BUT HAD THE MODEL ASHER TELL ME "I DON'T WANT TO TAKE IT OFF." I ADORE THE LAYERS AND I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE MORE.
