Mother Nature finally smiled upon Adelaide and delivered a beautiful, warm, spring night for the BNKR Runway, opening the Adelaide Fashion Festival 2016, presented by Mercedez Benz.
To kick it off, Finders opened with model Eliza Baker walking down in a darling white dress with lace finishes. Soft and delicate in pink and white, challenged with daring see through and deep off shoulder sleeves.
Next up, Keepsake (above). A label synonymous with elegance and charm, Keepsake proved to be nothing short of stunning with striking lace dresses in bold khaki colours, deep V necklines on asymmetrical dresses with gorgeous floral prints, meticulous gathering of the collar with golden round studs on white short jumpsuits. Mustard seemed to be the stand out colour for the season and it was used quite confidently.
The Fifth Label brought back all that was good from the 90s and added their own flair. Heavy dark denim jackets with shoulder cut outs and frayed edging, denim wrap skirts and jersey knit dresses that were styled with old school bandanas. On a softer note, The Fifth Label added to the collection off shoulder printed tops and shorts, flared pants and the innocence of the peach dress with light wavy sleeves.
With showcase was coming to an end, who better to close than C/MEO Collective (above). With the likes of Gigi Hadid and Caroline Vreeland strutting the label, this show was guaranteed to shine. Strong, solid white jumpsuits and bold blazers with open flared sleeves introduced the collection. Layers, levels and fringes were to seen all across the designs from tops to dresses and even the pants were designed with a shredded appeal. The set was exceptional.
