This year, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane channelled all of the glamour, elegance and spectacle that go hand-in-hand with fashion, with an exciting program of stylish events, an iconic venue and a new, restyled runway.

Major Australian fashion names joined home-grown favourites on the runway to showcase their Spring/Summer collections, and from show-stopping couture confections and luxe evening wear to the ultimate in style-centric daywear and accessories, the crowds were awed.

Fashion lovers can expect to saturate their wardrobes in a rainbow of hues this season, from bold colours and neons to earthy tones featured on sinuous and flowing shapes in cottons and silks, as well as figure-hugging structured pieces.   

Prints and patterns running the gamut from sharp-edged graphics and abstract digital prints to florals, stripes and cute motifs will be adorning many of Spring/Summer’s most lusted-after items.

For a minimalist approach, monochrome also dominated the catwalk. Fashionistas take note: this season’s black and white trend is anything but boring – wear it simple and strong, with designs focused on an attention to detail.

And if, like us, the rise in mercury has you instantly daydreaming of salt, sand and surf, you’re covered for the coast with swimwear ranging from gorgeous, vintage-inspired shapes to sultry one-pieces and itsy bitsy bikinis. Take your pick from solid hues to pops of neon and prints ranging from feminine florals to cute fruit motifs and amazing digital prints.

The boys certainly didn’t miss out on a new-season style fix either, with designers encouraging men to embrace colours and patterns in everything from perfectly fitted suits to shorts and blazers.

The first-ever Bridal Group Show, sponsored by Monili Jewellers, was a definite highlight, with Queensland’s leading bridal designers putting on a sigh-inspiring show, with gowns ranging from sleek and stunning to floaty and feminine, as well as full-blown princess dresses. Spring brides will be love the intricate laces, beading and embroidery, in shades of ivory, gold, silver, blush and even soft lilac.

The free events hosted in The City also attracted the crowds, including the Napoleon Perdis Top 5 Looks workshop with the makeup maestro himself and the Designers in the City styling session with Lisa Brown, Gail Sorronda and Sacha Drake.

It was a jam-packed week of stylish events and even more stylish socialites, and the best part is that Spring/Summer has only just begun!
