Adelaide Fashion Festival 2015: What’s to come…

So it’s that time of year again….yes that’s right…the city is preparing for Adelaide Fashion Festival 2015.

Adelaide Fashion Festival is a celebration of Adelaide’s up-and-coming and established designers. Adelaide is bursting with creative talent and I personally love when creativity is celebrated. This year the festival will have a whole new look with most shows taking place on Hindmarsh Square, check out the program to see which shows you would like to attend.

Not only will there be runway shows but there are also a couple of speaking events; The Fashion Insiders Breakfast and the Connecting With China Workshop, this is such a great opportunity for those wanting to get into the fashion industry.

The festival will run over 4 days from the 22nd to the 25th of October. In anticipation of the festival, there have been a couple of events around town to get us all excited about what’s to come. Be Young PR and Little Lion Communications held a party at Pop Bar in the Adelaide Casino so we could hear from some of the designers about what they are looking forward to and One Rundle Trading Co. held a runway within their beautiful Dulwich store, to give us a taste of the fashions to come…here are some moments captured at these events….

Liza Emanuele SS15/16 ‘Blue Sky’ Launch

Liza Emanuele recently launched her SS15/16 collection ‘Blue Sky’ in-store along side her new ‘roomie’ Rosie of Regina sole Queen, hosted by Filip Odzak, it was a great night of fashion and industry appreciation.

Liza celebrated the launch of her new collection by inviting a panel of social media queens, including Kelly Noble of Glam Adelaide, Sonia of Sonia Styling and Jenni of Styling Curvy to talk all about the power of social media today and how it connects people with other people and products.

The Blue Sky collection features a range of styles, cuts, colours and patterns that would suit all body shapes and sizes as well as will get you excited for the warmer months. I highly recommend checking out Liza’s new collection!

Adelaide Fashion Festival: SA Designer Showcase

The SA Designers Showcase was the place to be on Saturday night, held at the Old Adelaide Gaol, the night was filled with fashion, food, fun….and Krispy Kreme’s! The runway featured the latest collections from South Australia’s leading established and emerging designers, including Casper & Pearl, Chelsea Eve, couture+love+madness, Designer Duchess, GeorgiaGuy, Greta Kate, Jaimie Sortino, Liza Emanuele, Namoi, Necia, Malachi Empire, Orbin Collective, Elyse Barker, Laura Jayne The Label, Madeline The Label, Millicent Elizabeth, SCK The Label, Scott & Scarce, Simmone Standing The Label and Willow and Grace.

The emerging designer competition was judged by Tania Debono (Fashion Blogger/Director of The CakeFace and The Writing), Jodi Nash (SA Style Magazine Editor), Tess (Rip it Up Magazine), Mitchell Oakley Smith (Curator of Fashion Icons at the Art Gallery) and Wayne Cooper (Fashion Designer). With so many beautiful pieces in each collection, it would have been a difficult decision for the judges, the designer they chose to win the title of SA’s best emerging designer was Simmone of Simmone Standing The Label (seen below).

Here are some of my favourite looks from the show:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The show was amazing, there is so much talent in Adelaide! After the show guests were treated to delicious bites provided by The Republic and on departure each guest received a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
