An action packed day three of MBFWA saw some of the highlights of the week present one after the other in a stellar line up of contrasts. Alice McCall’s ‘Babooshka’ collection, themed on the famous stained glass of Budapest, introduced a futuristic feel to the label’s signature feminine and bohemian character. Bright prints in mandarin orange, cherry red and vivid green featured, set against a range full of cut out necklines, lampshade skirts, sleek maxi dresses and subtle sporty angles.
Sara Phillips took such vivid colour to another level, reworking baroque prints with her signature love of Australian flora on blue and white tailored blouses paired with eccentric teal striped pants and boxy blazers.
For Bec & Bridge, it was all about introducing maturity to an otherwise youthful label. A focus on effortless, summery resort wear was cast against a white palette, brightened with pastel and neon floral prints featured on panelled tees and slimline pants. Palazzo pants and flowing maxi dresses added a refreshingly nonchalant feel.
The highlight of the day was the much-anticipated Ellery show. Packed with celebrities, the show was watched by the likes of Rumi Neeley (Fashion Toast), Bryan Boy, Susie Bubble, Ivan/Face Hunter, Lara Bingle, Jodie Gordon and more. A sublime collection themed on Ellery’s childhood teddy bear was not cutesy in the slightest, cementing the label’s vision with an opulent colour palette set against dramatic yet clean and often sporty silhouettes.
Ending the evening was the Men’s Show, with From Britten the clear standout. A sharp collection featuring tangerine and beige structured outerwear and relaxed shirting was enough to make Melbourne very proud.
