7 DAYS OF AUSTRALIAN DESIGNERS: AJE

Posted on April 10th, 2014

AJE dress

The AJE showcase was on tonight on the last evening of MBFWA in Sydney. Again, the team at AJE created an amazing collection. Each season they continue to evolve, while still keeping their signature AJE sequins and leather aesthetic. I already have my eye on a few pieces for SS14, which include a khaki leather pencil skirt!

Oh, and just to confirm the pronunciation as it did come up in conversation today, its kind of like AGE but with a softer J sound.

7 DAYS OF AUSTRALIAN DESIGNERS: DION LEE

Posted on April 9th, 2014

Dion Lee top and skirt, Isabel Marant heels

Dion Lee is not only talented but extremely business savvy for setting up a second line focusing on more everyday pieces. Being able to still deliver the signature creativity and quality of the main line but at a lower price point, Dion as completely nailed what his customer wants. She's still the same girl most of the time, but now she can wear Dion Lee every day, not just on special occasions. Today for the first time he showcased Dion Lee Line II on the runway at MBFWA and completely won over the crowd. There was no doubt he was going to be included in my favourite Australian designers list for this series.

7 DAYS OF AUSTRALIAN DESIGNERS: ZIMMERMANN

Zimmerann dress, Balmain boots

The detailing on this SS14 Zimmermann dress is like no other. As feminine as the Zimmermann collections are I still find pieces that have enough edge to them that I feel compelled to add to my wardrobe season after season. Their swimwear has a cult following as do their summer throw on evening wear. However, something to keep in mind is that Zimmermann also do beautiful coats and blazers that are well worth the investment.

Josh Goot top and skirt, Balmain boots

A personal favourite, and has been for years is Josh Goot. I actually just popped into the showroom today and saw the most recently showcased collection for SS14 and it is INCREDIBLE! All black, white, grey and khaki, with lots of knee length hemlines that I adore. I already know that I'm going to be adding so many pieces to my already growing collection.

7 DAYS OF AUSTRALIAN DESIGNERS: BASSIKE

Posted on April 6th, 2014

Bassike leather top and skirt, Isabel Marant heels , Maniamania ring

Sydney Fashion week is on this week and as I love supporting Australian designers I thought I would share a post series focusing on some of my favourite labels.

First up is Bassike. Its no wonder really why I adore this brand so much as they're all about the black, white, grey, stripes, navy, khaki and leather that I adore. They stock the best basics that no wardrobe should be without and exude an understated cool that no one else can nail like they do.
