L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2012: Runway 7 – Harper’s Bazaar
Today I’m sharing with you the most memorable moments of the Runway 7 show presented by Harper’s Bazaar that I attended as a part of L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2012. I’d call this show the “All Stars” event. Fabulous evening gowns and cocktail dresses to die for by high end Australian fashion designers Collette Dinnigan, Scanlan & Theodore, Aurelio Costarella, Camilla & Marc, Rachel Gilbert, Alex Perry and Toni Maticevski.
Signature Alex Perry one shoulder dresses in black silk, lace and gun metal taffeta from his new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.
Daring sequins and bright color at Rachel Gilbert. How gorgeous is this sequinned orange dress?
Collette Dinnigan true to her style, presented gorgeous evening dresses in lace.
Draping and pleating in teal, black and off white at Camilla and Marc. Simple but nice.
Mesmerizing art deco styles with feathers & embellished lace at Scanlan & Theodore
Aurellio Costarella’s collection was a standout of the show: bewitching feathers, wraps, ruffles and leather corsets.
Evening gowns by Toni Maticevski to finish off this fantastic show. The model in the middle is new. I fell in love with this blonde panther after seeing her walking at LMFF this year.
With the exception of the strikingly bright Rachel Gilbert’s collection the dominant colors of the Harper Bazaar’s runway were muted off white, tan, teal and black. While the rest of the fashion world moving towards clashing prints, neons and brights (even for evening fashion) our designers continue with the classic ‘red carpet’ colors. Evidence that Australian fashion moves in its own mysterious ways…
