We were half way through fashion week and APL was snapping everything left right and centre! It was expected that everyone would be tired but no one was over what was to come. After an amazing few days you wouldn’t really expect things to get much better. But this is fashion week and what you should expect, is the unexpected! The night was young and APL was more than ready to snap the 10 designers parading for us this evening.
LIFEwithBIRD opened the show and paraded beautiful dresses in the ever occurring colour scheme for this winter, pink tones and apricots. They showed off shorts, coats and an APL favourite – prints.
From there APL snapped girly dresses from Alice McCall, Bettina Liano and Nevenka all showing us that colours such as apricots, pinks, oranges, browns are what you should have in your wardrobe this spring. Gorman then raised the bar with models walking in polka dot frocks and cute bikini’s, colours came out to play and it definitely put us in the mood for a fun filled day at the beach.
The men took to the runway in preppy, nautical designs by Leopold. Whoever thought navy blazers could look so good? May sound like a school boy uniform but it wasn’t, it was so much more. They then walked in white shorts with checkered shirts, sounds simple but it looked so good. Leopold also catered to the ladies sending them down the runway in beautiful gathered silk gowns.
Obus gave us belted dresses and florals, Arabella Ramsay showed off high collars, Manning Cartell paired lace with sheer and Nicolangela gave us feminine glamour and to close the show Wayne Cooper showed cocktail dresses that were detailed on the necklines and shoulders. Overall APL snapped the best from all designers and from this show our favourite was LIFEwithBIRD, Leopold and Gorman! We’re so excited for this spring/summer, it’s going to be extremely difficult choosing what garments we should buy because there is so many amazing things on offer from everyone!
