MBFWA Day Two Wrap Up
Words; Marina Dojchinov
We were there for all the action for day two of Mecrdez Benz Fashion Week. Continuing the trend of designers who left us breathless, we took a front row seat & nabbed an exclusive backstage interview with one at one of the most talked about shows of the festival.
Toni Maticevski steered away from his traditional palette of monochromes, and instead took us on a journey into a bright world of colour, with hues of orange and reds. His signature of look of delicate silks, interwoven with feathers was present with the 14/15 collection on display, to which he credits futuristic elements such as time travel and the thought of sending models into space.
Michael Lo Soldo, put on an extravagant show with models donning loose fitting garments that flowed effortlessly, mixed with structural pieces that sat in all the right places.
Surprisingly both escaped criticism for their choice of models. Alex Perry, Carla Zampatti and Kahlo all came under fire this week for their choice of thin girls. Notably Cassi Van Den Dungen and Nicole Pollard received the most condemnation with the editor in chief of Maree Clair Jackie Frank calling the girls agents directly after the show to enquire about their health.
We can’t reveal to much just yet, but make sure to grab your issue of Promo packed full of fashion, and keep checking back for daily wraps up of the to-be-seen-at fashion event of the season.
