Fashion Spy** Day Three MBFWA

Hump Day for MBFWA and what a hump day it was. Highlights included, British it-girl Georgia May Jagger walked for Australian boho-cool label Camilla in what could only be described as a perfect pairing.

In addition, a strong contigent of home-grown models fresh from the Autumn Winter 2013/14 international shows like Julia Nobis, Caitlin Lomax, Amanda Ware, Montana Cox, Rachel Rutt and Ruby Jean Wilson have walked this week.

LISA HO
Showing against a backdrop that combines the timeless with the modern, Lisa Ho’s show at the Art Gallery of NSW was not dissimilar to its surrounds. The designer sent a cohesive lineup of timeless and feminine pieces with a modern edge down the runway.

German botanist Ernst Haeckel and French art nouveau jeweller René Jules Lalique were the inspiration behind McCall’s organic silhouettes and powder hues. Ornate prints in oceanic hues were a highlight.

Sisters Somer and Liberty Watson have established their label in a relatively short period of time for a young brand. The label is only two years old but is showing all the signs of being an industry mainstay.
