A heady concoction of seasoned as well as up and coming Aussie design talents showcased their avant-garde lines of eclectic clothing on the second day of the ongoing Melbourne Fashion Festival (MFF).
Luxurious everydaywear fashion brand Bassike, owned and operated by designer friends Deborah Sams and Mary Lou Ryan, featured a very chic meets edgy collection. The sleek yet bold line displayed black and white checkerboard dresses, stretchy leather trousers, panelled skirts, printed jumpsuits and shimmering bright red loose-fitting tops.
Famous Australian eveningwear design label Rachel Gilbert once again wove magic with its floor sweeping gowns and cute cocktail dresses. Embellished with hand beading, monochrome prints and glittering specks of metallics, the range featured miniskirts, military-inspired coats, nipped at waist flared numbers and lace-detailed figure hugging pieces.
Other than the glitzy runway presentations from Australian labels, the second day of Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival also honoured the Paris-based brand Strateas.Carlucci, headed by the Aussie designer duo Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci, with the highly coveted Tiffany & Co. National Designer Award.
The Parisian label showcased its men’s and women’s collection Pyrite on the same day of the event. Based on sombre shades of black, white and grey, the architectural-cum-sculptural range included tailored pants, jackets, cropped jackets and luxurious overcoats.
