The final hours of RAFW 2010!

Unfortunately, Day 5 of RAFW quickly approached... but be sure, it went out with a BANG!  The morning started off with an amazing collection by Arnsdorf.  The Arnsdorf collection had similar elements to that of Dion Lee's collection.  However, whilst Dion's collection contained that delicate architectural element, the Arnsdorf collection was more structural and architectural.  The collection started with the use of earthy tones such as nude, brown and dark red.  It then stunned audiences with a gorgeous twist to the colour pallet and it was all lilac!  The lilac was then contrasted with a geometric print, similar to that of the Dion collection.  I love the construction of the dresses, skirts and trench coats.
The mood of the day then changed with little flirty collections including lingerie by Ms Couture and swimwear by White Sands.... 
Ms Couture... the collection titled, ‘Angel by day, Vixen by Night’ took lingerie at RAFW to a whole new level!  Designer Juilee Chione-Tullio (who is Alex Perry's Couture manager) created a beautiful, feminine, gorgeous, yet seductive collection, consisting of some of Australia's 'finest luxury lingerie'.  
White Sands.......looking at this collection definitely remains me of summer!  Besides the fact that it is swimwear, the colour pallet is warm, exciting and the girls are all tanned!
Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2010 ended on a high note with the final collection by the one and only Ksubi!  Not only was it their come back after last year's downfall, but it was their 10th anniversary and they were definitely ready to rock out in true Ksubi style!  The 'One Via Zero' collection contained Ksubi's true signature streetwear element.  Denim, leather and texture were evident elements throughout the collection.  Their collection was edgy, rock, funky and graffiti/street like. The colour pallet consisted of black, white and blue with a touch of orange and red.  RAFW 2010 definitely went out in style!
  And so it was the calm before the storm, and what a storm is was!  The 15th Annual Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2010 was one of memorable moments. The fashion industry watched and waited in anticipation as the new season’s trends graced the runways via some of the most highly anticipated shows.  RAFW veterans such as Alex Perry, Zimmermann, Camilla and Marc and Lisa Ho came out in true elegant style.  However, this year's RAFW was a time for bright new designers to shine, especially Dion Lee and Romance was Born!  From gorgeous gowns to giant brides, the 15th Annual Rosemount Australian Fashion Week proved to be an unexpected and unforgettable event!  As my first RAFW I will never forget it and I can't wait till next year!
Stay tuned for the trends of RAFW and the after parties.  Still to come Fashion Forward Weekend and Fashion Weekend Sydney..
