International Fashion Week: Runway Report

International Fashion Week: Runway Report

With NYFW, LFW & MFW all wrapped up, and Paris Fashion Week well underway, I'm getting excited about my first Melbourne Fashion Week as it's the first time I'll have ever been in Melbourne when it's on.

But before I get ahead of myself, here's what I'm loving from the international shows, my favourite picks, my trend predictions, and the looks I'm praying don't become trends in Australia...!

Dark Romance at Elie Saab:

The designer that stole my heart this season is Elie Saab...his Ready-To-Wear runway show in Paris was immaculate. The mix of structured silhouettes paired with sheer, light fabrications, nipped waists, luxe embroidery and just the right amount of skin, was pure perfection. 

Love this classic look at Balenciaga, the perfect amount of drama.

The mix of bare shoulders and structured cuffs was delicious at Celine.

My trend prediction for Fall is that we will start seeing structured garments make more of a comeback. Haider Akcerman's show (caused headlines thanks to Nicki Minaj's outfit!) was a beautiful mix of masculine shapes and soft feminine fabrics. I'm SO ready for the giant oversized (faux) fur jackets too!

The geometric lines of this silk top mixed with leather is my pick from the Haider Show.

...and that's a NO from me!...

These are the looks that caught my for all the wrong reasons. I'm all for creativity in fashion but...please explain.

Dry cleaning bag dress from Moschino.. Okay I kind of love this? But also WTF?

I'm praying the "underwear on the outside" print look at Moschino doesn't take off.

This look from Commes Des Garcon reminds me of one thing: the inside of a vaccuum cleaner.
