Trending Down Under at MBFW Australia 2020

With the Closing of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2020 RESORT Collections this past weekend I’m left with a feeling of a nostalgic stage that leaves it all up to me to recreate these styles into my daily wardrobe for this upcoming year.

 

Continuing a mixing of Streetstyle and Resort collections into a Luxury vs. Streetstyle arena bringing a secular of ideas and trends alike to feature such dramas as A Bohemian Western, a Cruella de Vil afternoon, a Pink Holiday and features of Swim, Matching Sets, Luxury x Streetstyle with minimalism alike, Plus Size, and even exclusive Mens Collections.

A BOHEMIAN WESTERN

Along with We Are Kindred’s boudoir style, Tigerlily, Aqua Blu, Matteau, Carla Zampatti, Thurley, Chloe Mottau -St. George and Sarah Moore – FDS -The Innovators all display a saloon style vibe in long and flowy pretty and feminine collections.   With wanting virtuous women waiting inside in their all whites by Lee Mathews seemingly undergarments of an old era as men in MNDATORY – St. George visit in stride defending all that is honor.
