Rosemount Australian Fashion Week has just finished for another year, and I was lucky enough to see two shows this week: the MCA Group Collection & Art Installation Show on Thursday night and the Ksubi show last night, which closed the whole shebang. On Thursday night lingerie label Ku Shu Shu made its Fashion Week debut, which was very exciting for me as I helped out with their PR.
The Ksubi show was a veritable who's who of the Aussie fashion scene and provided great people watching. Sydney's hipsters were out in force; I did find it a little amusing that people were waiting in line for 2 hours to watch super skinny, glum looking teenagers rocking distressed denim for all of 15 minutes, but I guess the ultimate reward was the free flowing complimentary drinks.
My highlight of RAFW- in terms of my taste and overall wearability- was Jayson Brunsdon's S/S showing, which was heavily influenced by mid century European resort wear. The salmon and baby blue chenille dress would work a treat in my wardrobe.
