Day 2 of RAFW 2010 Continued

Finally I've had the chance to post on my blog after the two most amazing days at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week!  It was an experience I will never forget and I cannot wait to tell you all about it, especially the Romance was Born show!  But first I thought I should return to day two and catch you up from where we last left.  Day two, part two, saw the light of one of the most highly anticipated shows of the week.  That's right the collection by the one and only Alex Perry!  Alex Perry has done it again, the Arabian Princess collection was 'expensive' in classic Alex Perry sophisticated style.  Models strutted down a never ending runway at Fox Studios, in the presence of some of Australia's high fashion elite with a guest list of over 1000!  The collection consisted of cute cocktail dresses, tailored numbers and gorgeous, glamorous red carpet gowns.  All contained exquisite detailing, lace, silks, sequins, feathers and tulle.  It entailed a luxurious yet fashion forward (right on trend) colour pallet including, nude, gold, lilac, black, touches of white and a few prints. It was one of my favourite Alex Perry collections and loving the hair and makeup by Napoleon Perdis and Renya Xydis!
Two other stand out collections of the day included Nicola Finetti and Ellery.
Nicola Finetti... Gold! It's all about little gold dress!  I am absolutely loving this collection it's, classic and elegant.  I am obsessed with the first half of his collection 'the gold part.'  Here Nicola Finetti experiments with the little gold dress using various pastels, materials and emphasizes ruffles.  The second part of his collection takes a new tone where he uses the colours white and black and experiments with new shapes. 
Ellery... I didn't know what to expect from Kym Ellery's collection.  I found it really fascinating!  A mixture of texture, leather, embellishments and feathers.  The collection reminded me of arriving to a new land with a mixture of earthy colours and as the collection progressed it's as though we arrived at a dark place with the use of black only.  The super-wide leg trousers intrigued me!
That's a wrap for day 2 of Rosemount Fashion Week, it was truly an amazing day, but let me just say that on day 3 it just keeps getting better!  Stay tuned for a complete recap of day 3 and day 4 and my experiences straight from the runway!
