MBFF- Brisbane Arcade, Spring 2015
Eliza Fairbairn | On 28, Aug 2015
Brisbane Arcade, located in Queen Street Mall, has always been famous for its fashion – this was emphatically showcased in the Brisbane Mercedes Benz Festival of 2015.
Brisbane Arcade spring fashion was centre stage on Tuesday 25th of August, as glamorous models strutted down the runway with poise and elegance. The fashion under the spotlight emphasised a strong juxtaposition ofÂ antique style with a hint of the modernised women. Among the designers showcased were Pia Du Pradal, Maiocchi, Irma J Smith, Tengdahl, Bora and Darb Couture. Examine the exquisite beauty for yourself below:
Pia Du Pradal wasÂ first to hit the runway, with an authentic twist on modern-day Ascot racewear. The elegance and sophistication portrayed through these designs really captured the true beauty of the collection. First came the neutral palette, then came the colour…
Next cameÂ Irma J Smith. Patterns, textures and colours were emphasised as the spotlight hit the dramatic designs of Smith. Who would haveÂ thought that dramatising accessories to such an extent would complementÂ such complicatedÂ designs so elegantly?
Then cameÂ Tengdahl. A hip, texture-driven brand that showcased a completely different perspective on arcade fashion. This unique approach to styleÂ was refreshing yet captivating, as colours that most designers would be too afraid to explore were expressed in such beautiful designs.
Bora appeared next on the runway with a unique exploration of lingerie meets elegant formal wear. The backless drop was emphasised as viewers were able to admire all aspects of her designs.
Last but not least was Darb Couture. This collection really captured the whole theme of the show-Â traditionalÂ elegance. Words cannot describe the eye-catching, delicate detail of the fabrics, as onlookers were glued to the seemingly complex yet simple white gowns floating down the aisle.
