Today is the start of Australian Fashion Week
Want to know one of the great things about the busy world of Fashion?Â It seems once one cityâ€™s fashion week ends, itâ€™s time to get ready for the start of another cityâ€™s beginning.
Today saw the start of Australian Fashion Week in Sydney and even though the country is a 24 hour flight away, thatâ€™s certainly no reason not to get in on their Summer ready trends and celebrations of several loved fashion designers.
Australian swimwear and clothing line Zimmermann, opened the show in style and definitely set the bar for a high standard of ranges to be seen on runways for the remainder of the week, which will run until Friday May 6th.
With a focus on silk and linen dresses, pastel and cream skirts and Capri trousers with elements of lace, diamond inserts and colour schemes of tan, white and aqua; onlookers were kept in the â€˜memory of an idyllic summer dayâ€™.Â
Vogueâ€™s art director Meg Gray, was on hand to comment on the first day of Australiaâ€™s homegrown talent and expressed her love for Zimmermannâ€™s latest creations.
â€œI love the modern element to the cut and fabric, but also the return to
Â romanticism with the chantilly and cotton lace.â€
Designer Nicky Zimmermann herself also commented on her collection named Halcyon Days and its ability to be â€˜nostalgic without being retro or vintageâ€™.
Australian Fashion Week will continue at Sydneyâ€™s Overseas Passenger Terminal and other off-site destinations, which include todayâ€™s luxury car showroom.
