The final day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia kicks off with a bang tomorrow with the highly anticipated New Gen show, proudly sponsored by Thai Airways International, (http://www.thaiairways.com.au/). Taking place on Friday 12 April at 10am on The Runway, the show will see Australia’s best young designers presenting their brand new collections for the very first time.

Jamie Ashkar is expected to make an impact with his minimalist style offering, whilst rising star Tristan Melle’s exceptional womenswear collection will no doubt gain the designer a legion of new fans. Eveningwear label Zhivago’s tailored separates, day dresses and show stopping gowns are also predicted to be well received by both media and consumers alike.

Marking one of the most important weeks of their professional lives, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2013 has already seen some of Australia’s brightest emerging design talents showcase their brand new Spring Summer 2013/14 collections to a global audience, with more to come over the next two days. Wednesday saw the amazing talents of young students from design schools Raffles take to the runway with resounding success, and fellow design institute TAFE: The Innovators today matched their achievements as they presented collections from their most talented students to a global audience.

Young protégé Emma Mulholland, who appeared in the group TAFE shows in 2011 and has gone on to dress high profile celebrities such as Kanye West, makes her debut solo presentation today at 7pm in The Theatre, and is expected to showcase an eclectic mix of both mens and womenswear.

A number of established designers also made their debut this season in the individual shows, including cult indie label Vanishing Elephant, who yesterday celebrated 5 years of the brand with a mix of mens and womenswear, and Kahlo, designed by close friends Rachelle Sinclair and Fay Ogunbadejo.
