Giving us a cool twist on resort inspired garments, Mec & the Maid catered for the eclectic trendsetter with exposed pockets on midriff tops paired with high waist shorts and some twirl-worthy skirts. Adding low-back/plunging neckline maxi dresses to the runway and topping it off with cute-as-a-button mid thigh dresses that made me want to go frolicking for hours through the meadows.
Captivating us with the use of electric blue and white structured garments, whimsical shorts and sultry poolside bodysuits and skirts, Jontè‘s use of leather and a hint of their pretty signature print was what stole my heart. Belted short dresses with caped sleeves also completed this collection; giving us some everyday spring styles to line our wardrobes with.
Rosie & Broken delivered a young and fresh take on pinks, oranges and purples with their daywear frocks before transforming their collection to a few neutral pieces and then taking it up a notch with classic black evening inspired party attire. A collection not for the fainthearted but admired by the fox in all of us.
Revealing one shouldered resortwear, Talweez Kaur Senghera designs sashayed down the runway with an array of hemlines in a neutral and burnt orange palette while dabbling in a few olive green ankle length garments. Paying particular tribute to the maxi dress, the collection had a strong summer accent and some pretty necklines to boot.
Jessica Bratich opened her collection with a tan travel bag to die for and complimented the runway with satchels, hobo bags, clutches and enough straps, buckles and bazinga to make any girl who loves a quality leather accessory want to sleep with it under their pillow too. Cool, edgy hues is what makes this collection a stand-out and lust-have for spring summer 12/13.
Featuring some pretty impressive Spring Summer garments, my favourite collection of the New Gen runway was With Grace for its clean lines and simplified separates. Exploring beautiful lengths with free flowing maxi skirts, cut-out long sleeved blouses, covetable thigh-high slit dresses and my favourite colour of the season; gold.
I just wish I had more than just one image from each designer’s collection so I could assist in further promoting their individual labels to buyers and retailers, but I have a feeling these five designers will all fair pretty well from their exposure and I cannot wait to see them again on the runway soon.
