Down under’s number one fashion event Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia formerly known as RAFW started today. The event started at 9am this morning local time with Australian label Romance Was Born by design duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales showing their collection for s/s 2013. MBFWA takes place until May 4 at the main site Sydney harbour and at various events across town. The annual event displays both fall/winter and spring/summer tarns-seasons’ collections due to the country’s climate.
On the day before, New South Wales Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner announce an exciting new Fashion Ambassador initiative for Australia’s MBFW 2012.
“Today I’m very pleased to announce that we have hand-picked five local fashion icons to act as Fashion Ambassadors for Sydney and New South Wales during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia,” said Soner said. “Our Fashion Ambassadors are local fashion designers Camilla Franks, Camilla Freeman-Topper, Dion Lee and Rachel Gilbert, and shoe designer Terry Biviano. These designers are all well-known throughout Australia and the world for their signature designs – Camilla Franks for her colourful graphic prints, Camilla Freeman-Topper for modern silhouettes with her brother Marc, Dion Lee for his structured tailoring, Rachel Gilbert for her luxury embellishments, and Terry Biviano for her highly coveted shoe designs.”
The next days will see exciting fashion shows and events of down under designers and international creatives.
