9th Apr 2014

Day three of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week brought with it stunning collections from Toni Maticevski, We Are Handsome and Christopher Esber. We were backstage and front row in order to bring you all the sartorial highlights.

In a unique move, Romance Was Born collaborated with artist Rebecca Baumann to bring us Reflected Glory, a beautiful installation based at Carriageworks, Sydney. The exhibition will be running through the month of April until May 11 and is open to the public—a definite must see. Head here for our coverage of day one and two in case you missed it!

Toni Maticevski

Maticevski wowed the fashion audience with his beautiful ready-to-wear collection. Cinched waists and billowing skirts culminated in timeless silhouettes, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn's graceful style. Modernised with sculptural detailing and a crisp palette, this elegant offering was perfected via Doctor Lisa Cooper's gorgeous floral headpieces.

We Are Handsome

Signature playful prints and a little touch of fantasy took centre stage at We Are Handsome's 2014 Fashion Week show. Set in the picturesque Paddington Reservoir Gardens, models strutted the garden path with playful accessories including Candy the yellow Python!

Christopher Esber

A touch of navel inspiration brought with it sharp tailoring, hotpant twin sets and gold detailing to Christopher Esber's 2014 Fashion Week collection. As always Esber's refined aesthetic reigned supreme, with a focus on texture and wearability. All in all, chic, sexy and relaxed.

Romance Was Born

Romance Was Born's Reflected Glory exhibition at Fashion Week this year, illustrates just what these two innovative designers do best—fashion and art intricately entwined. Romance Was Born worked with artist Rebecca Baumann to bring this sparkling installation to life. Through colour, light and reflection Reflected Glory embodies Baumann's exploration into the human pursuit of happiness, while Romance Was Born's creations of glittering wonderment centre the exhibition.
