5 Fashion Trends from MBFWA Resort 2017 June 10 2016, 0 Comments


Although Australia Fashion Week is already over this year it takes a while to digest the trends and work out what we might be wearing next summer.

This was the MBFWA Resort 2017 season and it focused on resort collections. The fashions were light, airy and easy to wear just what Aussies are good at doing.

The opening show in Sydney was by Toni Maticevski who is one of our top designers and has been around since 1999 and it closed with the iconic Oscar de la Renta just to add some international glamour to the event. This was the first international luxury brand on Australian shores and this is why MBFWA Resort 2017 was so important for Australian fashion. Let's hope that it is a taste of things to come.

These are some of the trends that I saw coming through

90's structure

Toni Maticevski's deconstructed white skirt is exciting and can elevate even a simple T shirt. Long loose ties were particularly evident throughout all the collections. The elegance and straight lines in this outfit reminds me of the 90's.

Simple monochromatic themes in mainly black, white and grey were evident throughout all the parades. This grey suit from Georgia Alice was so classical and cool.

Ginger and Smart produced some breathtaking lace garments as well as the house of Oscar de la Renta. I predict we will be seeing a lot of lace next summer.

 Pops of yellow

I noticed many of the designers using pops of yellow to brighten up a monochromatic theme. The outfit above from Toni Maticevski was dynamite! Love the proportions on this dress with the oversized ruffle to the narrow pencil skirt.

 The waist is back

There were many maxi dresses on the runway and I noticed that many were cinched in the waist or belted like this one from Oscar de la Renta. The belt has been overlooked in the past few years but I think it is on the way back.
