Interview with Nadia:
What was your highlight from MBFWA 2013?
There were quite a few (is this real?!) moments! It was so exciting to be around such a buzzing atmosphere. To be surrounded by the best in the business from magazine editors (my style icon Christine Centenera roaming around-hard to breathe in her presence), to the best Australian and international bloggers and celebrities such as Jennifer Hawkins and Lara Bingle. Everyone in such a small space was too much too handle!! Meeting the gorgeous Nicole Warne from the renowned blog Gary Pepper Vintage (and finding out she was so lovely), as well as getting snapped by the talented street photographer Lee Oliveira.
B) Is there one particular designer, or maybe a few in particular that stood out to you?
There were a few designers that stood out. I found Manning Cartell’s collection 'Fate & Change' really exciting! It had a strong futuristic and minimal feel as lots of harder fabrics were used. Almost in contrast their white story was amazing and had more of a romantic feel as sheer fabrics and this beautiful lace & netting fabric were used.
By Johnny was another label that really impressed! He is an up and coming designer as he only debuted at MSFWA last year. He used block colours and amazing paneling to sculpt the body. He had the whole crowd standing, clapping and cheering once his collection finished.
Camilla & Marc is back in the game, I really enjoyed their collection. They also celebrated their 10th year in the fashion business (which is quite a long time to be on top of the game) It was a really sleek, wearable collection with great structure that we have become accustomed too and love from C&M. They also provided a modern twist with pops of orange and paisley.
I have to mention Dion Lee he delivered another phenomenal collection. Last but not least Sydney label Aje- great sequin-separate pieces and woven fabrics that really sculptured the models bodies.
C) Were there any trends you noticed coming through from the Spring Sunner 13-14 collections in terms of colours, fits or maybe patterns/prints?
Yes I noticed some strong trends. Monochrome, this looks like its carrying though to another season. Sheer paneling, cut outs, razorbacks, geometric prints, metallic fabrics and crop tops. Crops were everywhere, which is scary to think as my stomach is not in the right condition to be on show.
D) What show did you find the most entertaining and amazing?
This is easy; it was definitely Toni Maticevski's sophisticated show! It was the one show that I honestly felt transported, it was much more then viewing a collection. It had a high-end couture feel and I instantly thought of Dior. The music was haunting and emotional (in an amazing way) as it started with a Piano that transited into French monologue as the models walked out. The clothes were also in a league of their own, Neoprene was draped to perfection as the pieces looked like sculptural pieces of art walking down the runway.
E) Are there any MUST-HAVE items that stood out to you from any of the designers collections?
Yes, there were so many items that I wanted but I like to pick items that I can get a lot of wear out of too!
On my hit list is this gorgeous buttery khaki leather jacket from Manning Cartell, they have used the same fabric to make these awesome leather panelled pants. I love the colour and think I could get so much wear out of them.
Bec & Bridge also had some great pieces, they had this sleek black cut out/mesh dress with an amazing razor back, it would be great for the Polo and summer days.
I’m a sucker for Dion Lee and this collection is no different. I need his deep royal blue structured blazer that includes black piping down the front and also his tailored white top that is angled on the neckline from the chest to wrap around the neck
