The last day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) was far less hectic than the beginning of the week, with the New Generation show being the main drawcard for us. With seven up-and-coming designers showcasing their collections, we were excited to see what this new crop of fashion designers had in store. While all of the collections were incredibly strong, it came as no surprise that the label I was wearing that day, was the one that stood out.

I saved my favourite outfit of the week for the last day. Made using super luxe silk, this cute matching culottes and sleeveless top ensemble by Natalie & Sarah is unbelievably comfortable and right on trend. The pyjama trend is still going strong and we can’t get enough of this summer inspired interpretation.

Having only recently set up shop at the Bondi Beach Markets in September last year, the talented duo are quickly gaining a reputation as a label to watch. Their fun and youthful collection tapped into a number of key trends, with a summer suit in a neon pink oriental print being the standout. After debuting at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia just six short months after starting the label, we can’t wait to see what the girls do next.
The beautiful resin bracelets and rings were by local label Gem Lettuce – we’ve already got our eye on a few pieces!
