The best week of the year wrapped up in style last night with some of Brisbane’s most established and finest showing their spring/summer collections at the Group 2 Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane.
Aqua Blu Australia opened the show with their iconic bright and colourful designs in classic, elegant silhouettes. Lorna Jane took to the runway next with a collection supposedly designed to take the wearer from gym to dinner. The shining moment of the show came when the models started sporting Bonita Kaftans down the runway. I was lucky enough to be at the launch event for this brand three years ago and it is incredible to see how the brand has blossomed. Speaking to others in the audience after, Bonita Kaftans certainly left an impression thanks to their absolutely stunning, bold colour palette and intricate, on-trend beading. Rubyyaya, Maiocchi, Naudic, Helen Grant, Sacha Drake, Bora and Urbbana rounded out the show, all with their own beautiful moments.
This year’s MBFF was one to remember and I have to extend my thanks to Lindsay Bennett for inviting me along to experience each show as well as the exceptional Richard Smith @rsit_richard for his wonderful photography each night.
Until next year,
