The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane: Final Shows
Amy Clarke | On 31, Aug 2014
You’ve seen what happened so far, but what happened later in the week? Here’s everything you need to know about Wednesday and Thursday night at The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane.
Wednesday’s first show was the Brisbane Arcade Group Show. If you’ve wandered through the arcade on trips to the city before, you’ll know how beautiful it all is, and on the runway it was no different. We saw Tengdahl, Maiocchi, Pia Du Pradal, The Irma J Smith House of Fashion, Bora, Daniel Lightfoot, and Darb Couture all show off their latest collections. To top it all off the Brisbane Arcade is celebrating its first Spring Flower “Colour My Senses” Show on 1-6 September and it’s free, so check it out and support some of Brisbane’s finest.
The 8:30pm show was the first of the Mercedes-Benz Group Shows. It was predominantly swimwear and resortwear, with a lot of gorgeous bright colours and comfortable designs. White Label Noba, Lisa Brown, Molly & Polly Swimwear (definitely a crowd favourite!), Aqua Blu Swimwear, Heaven Swimwear, The 400 Co., and Sacha Drake were all on show and ended the night with a bang.
Thursday night saw the Mercedes-Benz Group Shows parts two and three. First up was a mix of mens and womenswear, formal and casual, with Talulah, Pistols at Dawn, George Wu, Jack Sullivan, Michelangelo, Chetcuti, and Urbbana. This show showed usÂ a lot of bold prints and bolder colours, big designs and stunning detailing.
The third Mercedes-Benz Group Show consisted of the high-end designers Akira, Ginger & Smart, Ted Baker, Lee Mathews, and Easton Pearson. Easton Pearson stole the show with the unique styling and daring prints, but Ginger & Smart was my personal favourite with the chic monochrome and beautiful florals and pastels. All five designers brought something unique to the show and definitely ended the Group Shows memorably.
