Lisa Maree RAFW 2011 - Day 5

After receiving the press release for Lisa Maree's first individual show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, I was really excited!  It was my last show for fashion week and Lisa definitely ensured my week went out with a bang!  I arrived at the OPT just as the show was about to start (I was so glad I didn't miss it!)  The OPT had been transformed into a jungle with vines hanging on the runway and leafy pot plants.. Lisa Maree's Spring/Summer 2011/12 'Under My Skin' show was unforgettable!  Where to begin?  Perhaps with New York dance duo 'House of Ninja' and their 'Voguing'.  I'm a huge America's Next Top Model fan, and the fact that they were a part of the show was very exciting! Australia's Next Top Model winner Amanda Ware complemented the duo and opened the show in a full piece 'skin like' swimsuit with an animal prop attached to her arm. I love the use of the animal props..snakes wrapped around models' legs, crows on their heads, and feathered bird wings attached to them.  A show stopper was the model strutting the runway holding leashes with two male models attached.  The collection included, Lisa Maree's signatory crochet swimwear, lycra design swimwear and printed resort wear.  The show was vibrant, fun and kept us in suspense!  It was as though the OPT came alive..literally!  Loved the goodie bag!   
"Through the analogy of models 'shredding their skin,' Lisa's Woman shed her inhibitions in a sort of evolution that turned her into a confident, sensual creature that lay dormant within."
