    So what does everyone think of Australian fashion in general?


    Personally it does nothing for me; all of the ideas seem to be derived directly from their international counterparts.

    That's my opinon, and I'm Australian myself.

    i'm interested in Australian designers, they need some time to grow 'original' but i think they are doing an efford.

    sass&bide seem to have started up in :shock: London just found this out
    their work can also be found in their site Sass & bide
    I'm planing to post more on aussie fashion week as soon as fwd reports ;)

    my fave by far is AKIRA

    At the second day of the Australian fashion week, people were talking about Wayne Cooper, here a review and some of his best pictures. His collection was not really breathtaking -for me- but I bet the show was a real spectacle

    Here it comes, theatrical shows :rolleyes: seem much more important for Australian designers than real collections :blink:
    I admit that Gabriel did not impress me this time around. have a look though :flower:

    :shock: SARS masks seem to be the new accessory while it is cashing in :unsure: virus protection, designers' egos and clients' unsatiable signature statue syndrome

    of course PradaP...
    French people are bored with French fashion, Italians are bored with Italian fashion.. its only normal :lol:

    plus Australian fashion does need some more time to evolve into something fresh and original (imo) :blush:

    :shock: Not sure what's wrong with Aussie fashion week, but the much talked about greek-australian rising star Tina Kalivas' collection failed to impress me. Even though the following report speaks of Jeremy Scott influence, to me she seems more close to the McQueen-Sophia Kokosalaki spirit.
    Tina also seems to be a bit full of herself, i wonder why??
    Anyway, here comes the review and some pictures from her almost ugly show (make up, hair and my-god those poses made me :sick: :yuk: )

    round up for Australian Fashion Week with Peter Morrissey's collection, quite influenced by Tom Ford's style, but (imo) one of the best we've seen from Australia this season.
