Fashion Weekend in Sydney May 2013

Written by , Posted in Events

Sydney Fashion Weekend

I was lucky enough to go to Fashion Weekend in Sydney back in May. Some of Australia’s newest and hottest up and coming designers were show casing their latest designs. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the quality of the work and the creativity of the designs. The designers were show casing their Winter 2013 Collections, although it didn’t look like a Winter collection to me. Lots of funky short dressers, metallic materials and surprising floral prints. I particularly loved Bec and Bridge’s line. It was was full of bright, bold colours. You can check out her collection here. I also loved Ixiah’s line. It was absolutely stunning and Krystel, the Designer and Creator of Ixiah, does an awesome job. She sources rare and unique materials which have a beautiful quality, and best of all, they are made in Australia. I actually got to meet Krystel. She was extremely nice which was an added bonus. Check out her collection.

There were actually a lot of stores discounting their products which I found strange. Peep Toe, Glass House, Napoleon just to name a few. They were selling discounted products or the products that they wanted to get rid of. It felt like they were cheapening themselves a little. I still bought a few things and had a great time. I even got to do a little bit of photographic modelling which was fun. Check out my pics below of the day.
