Want to know one of the great things about the busy world of Fashion?  It seems once one city’s fashion week ends, it’s time to get ready for the start of another city’s beginning.

Today saw the start of Australian Fashion Week in Sydney and even though the country is a 24 hour flight away, that’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 ‘memory of an idyllic summer day’. 

Vogue’s art director Meg Gray, was on hand to comment on the first day of Australia’s homegrown talent and expressed her love for Zimmermann’s latest creations.

“I love the modern element to the cut and fabric, but also the return to

 romanticism with the chantilly and cotton lace.”

Designer Nicky Zimmermann herself also commented on her collection named Halcyon Days and its ability to be ‘nostalgic without being retro or vintage’.

Australian Fashion Week will continue at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal and other off-site destinations, which include today’s luxury car showroom.
