Emerging from the runway and making their way into your closet are some of the hottest trends from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
From travelling back in time to giving your old wardrobe staples a brand-new spin, the latest fashion trends at MBFW make it extremely easy for you to prep your summer wardrobe. If you’re an avid follower of style trends, read on to discover what’s in store this season.
The Classic White Shirt Gets An Update
From dramatic silhouettes to over-the-top cuts, the classic white shirt saw an all-new upgrade on the runway. The next-gen tailoring, especially at Georgia Alice’s Resort ‘17 collection, transformed white shirts from your average wardrobe staple to an out-and-out statement figure in a gender fluid fashion. Ginger & Smart, on the other hand, took to the white shirt in a long, oversized fashion, thereby, blending multiple trends into one.
From designers Georgia Alice and Steven Khalil to Karla Špetić, sheer fabrics were a sure-shot favorite of designers alike. Whether in the form of backless gowns or shirt dresses, the lightness and depth of this fabric made its way back into the consumer’s closet. Sheer is one of the easiest spring trends to replicate from the runway to reality which makes it one of the most revered trends of the season.
An Ode To The 90s
The newest fashion trend from the Australian Fashion Week 2016 saw numerous designers draw influences from the 90s. Whether in the form of sporty aesthetics, loose silhouettes or gold accents, the runway dazzled in grunge and ghetto athletic choices. Not to forget, the ever-so-reliable denim too witnessed a gritty makeover. Given this style nostalgia, it’s safe to say that we’re moving back in time, and the trip is every bit exciting.
Yellow – The Standout Hue
Fluid fabrics have long been a runway favorite, and this time was no different. Myriad shades of the vivacious yellow took to the ramp with modern tailoring and plenty of skin show. Where designer Manning Cartell opted for rich mandarin hues for floating ensembles in a typical bohemian fashion, Bec & Bridge and Rebecca Vallance introduced spicy mustard and buttery yellows respectively. Fabrics like silk in either solid or lace detailing made yellow the standout shade of the fashion week.
You’d think textures are only limited to fabrics, but behold – heavy use of Swarovski crystals, exposed zippers, and deconstructed silhouettes contribute far more to the trend. Seen on the works of talented designers like Christopher Esber and Dion Lee, textures made their way into the hearts of fashion aficionados through smart layering and fabric manipulation. Imagine crystals sewn together to form a simple shift dress – clearly, the days of basic textures ruling fashion trends are over.
