Last night some of Australia’s most talented designers hit the catwalk for Designer Runway 4 at MSFW.
Bul ruled the runway with a contrasting collection of flowing fabrics and structured sets, the colour palette was seemingly neutral with black, white, and grey being used prominently, however there were splashes of burnt orange and pale green throughout the runway. It was a stunning collection and I was captivated the whole time, one of my favourites for the night.
Livia Arena came next with a clean but eye catching colourful runway, there was pale greys coupled with bright pinks and fluted finished dresses and skirts that swished down the runway, splashing bits of colour with them. As always there was plenty of black and white coupled with neutrals as well as stand out metallics. Navy Blue was a major part of Livia Arena’s collection this year.
Above cruised the runway in forever classy monochrome tones, all models sported stunning scarfs that caught me eye from the very beginning. Above showed a smoothly continuous collection that featured flowing light fabrics and beautiful pant sets, all in classic neutrals and black and white.
Kuwaii showed an imposing collection with the palette varying throughout the runway, there was structured shapes featuring all featuring pale orange and blue to finish off the collection, the perfect spring/summer range.
Chorus was my personal favourite on designer runway 4, there was a breathtaking display of both colour and neutrals and the transition and pairings were seamless. The first model took to the runway appearing almost ethereal all in white and seemed to glide down the runway. Wide leg 3/4 pants were a standout for the chorus collection. There were plenty of bright pinks and oranges paired with classic black.
Limedrop’s model showcased the first real signs of patterns and vibrant colours for the night, with beautful liilacs and head turning digital and geometric prints as a standout. There was a real synergy with this collection and there was some beautiful cobalt blues featured that caught all the audiences eye.
Leonard St showed a bright and fun spring/summer collection, there were short hemlines and an array of colours, once again navy and cobalt blue being a popular colour choice for the next coming seasons. There were a mixture of prints and textiles, the perfect spring collection.
There was consistent colour from start to finish whilst Gorman’s models took to the runway, there were beautiful silk fabrics and breathtaking prints featured throughout this collection. The colour palette showcased pinks, greens, blues and yellows and oranges throughout the entire collection, all along with the signature unique prints the label is known for.
TETTMAN.DOUST showed stunning sheer garments and subtle prints as the opening number for their collection white, pale green and pale blue were a feature throughout the runway. Their was a clear vision for this seasons collection and there was plenty of flowing fabrics and statement pieces gracing this runway, the palette smoothly transitioned to greys, black and white as the show continued.
Matcho Suba was a standout collection with rose gold metallics paired with a contrasting black throughout their show, there was a mixture of flattering fabrics and textures, with black, red and orange being the Matcho Suba colour choice for the spring/summer collection.
