As the Friday evening grew cool outside, the Adelaide Fashion Festival marquee began to heat up inside, with the ‘Ready-to-Wear’ runway show finishing off a second night of runways for the 2016 Festival.

Tiff Manuell / Julie White exploded onto the runway with bright and lively colours. Tiff Manuell’s quirky clutch handbags and oversized tote bags was a match made in heaven with Julie White’s fun and bold collection of silk scarves, socks and stockings.

D’nim Artistic Jeans came out strong. Bringing back the overalls with a denim shoulder bag and multi toned jackets. The patchwork prints were astonishing. The intensity of the denim was mellowed with the green and blue splash blends on the high collar long coats and dresses.

Autark brought an enchanting feel to the stage. The frilled high collars and mid-way gathered sleeved shirts were polished with a buttoned up back. Maroon velvet overall dresses, black buttoned velvet skirts and off the shoulder ruffled tops gave a medieval vibe to Autark’s collection.

The crowd went wild for So It Goes. With laid back skater influence, So It Goes delivered a youthful line with a touch of class. Denim wide legged pants, denim jackets with flared sleeves and oversized pin-striped white jackets. The edging of the shirts and dresses were kept raw and frayed while the trousers and white cropped top had a satin finish.
