Day 4 RAFW 2010 continued

Whilst the Dion Lee show sent shock waves through Rosemount Australian Fashion Week... well it wasn't over yet!  The Dion show was followed by another one of my favourite designers Kirrily Johnston.  I love collections that tell an evident story.  Kirrily, like the Romance was Born show had that jungle feel.  Whilst Romance was born took us through their magical jungle, Kirrily opted for an urban/tribal jungle.  The tribal feel has been an evident element in previous Kirrily collections, however in her latest 'Apocalypto' collection, took Tribal to the next level.  The collection reminded me of Tribal Indian, meets Tarzan and Jane!  Kirrily's exotic tribal collection incorporated a combination of zebra stripe prints, geometric triangular prints, leathers, fringe and used earthy tones such as nude, red and brown.  It consisted of flowy dresses including maxis, harem pants, leggings and knitwear.  I love the tribal hair and face paint!
Fernando Frisoni.. not only do I love saying this guy's name, I also love the fact that this season was the first season Fernando launched a womanswear line!  Fernando's main aim was to create a collection that was relaxed, yet feminine, with a combination of skirts and dresses mixed with pants and blazers.  The majority of the collection was white and black, however, we then get that unexpected twist of colour.... splashes of red, blue, pink and even a little print!
 Coming Up - The recap of the final day of RAFW including a trend report, the RAFW after parties and a recap of Fashion Forward Weekend and Fashion Weekend Sydney.
