Aussies at LFW S/S 2013

London Fashion Week ended several days ago and instead of conforming to the norm and posting a rap-up of my favourite shows (which many bloggers seem to do), I thought I should do things a little differently. Maybe it's about time to subtly wave the Aussie flag (metaphorically of course) and showcase the Australian designers who presented in London. After all, I am very proud of our homegrown visionaries who have certainly made a name for themselves and is able to place local Australian fashion onto an international scale.

With simple and sleek silhouettes, Dion Lee took graphical detailing to a whole new level ... making them literally 3 dimensional.

Sass & Bide

If Spring/Summer 2013 is going to go by Sass & Bide's vision, there's going to be a lot of crossing between feminine and masculine ... light and dark ... and unexpected touches of embellishments. I loved how the designing duo Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton reworked the men's tuxedo adding details here and there, making it flattering to the female form. Also, that last feathered frock with the military-style ornament just left me speechless. I will say one thing though... personally Sass & Bide never disappoints.


What struck me in this collection was the mixture of bright separates with sheer languid dresses. Such an unlikely combination to be put into the same show but designer Kit Willow-Podgornik make it work. I think the success is in the carefree and wispy silhouettes projecting this sense of movement as if blown by the wind. A certain edgyness was still apparent with the use of exposed bras and bustiers; harking back to the trend of lingerie as outerwear.
