MBFWA - An Ode to No One’s Visions of Symmetry

May 10th, 2012 by and | No Comments

It wasn’t a question of who did digital prints this Fashion Week (they were everywhere), it was a case of who did them the best. One contender is certainly Adi Setiadi, the designer behind emerging Sydney label An Ode to No One. Working in collaboration with graphic design agency Helm, Adi developed a series of architectural prints derived from photographs of various structures. Printed on wool and silk, the overlapped and mirrored images - at times verging on the kaleidoscopic - were a perfect match for tailored shift-dresses, skirting and shirting.

May 6th, 2012 by and | 1 Comment

In a day dominated by more after-parties than shows, Akira brought a beautiful grace to the end of MBFWA. In the intimate space of The Box, Akira Isogawa led out each of the models by hand beginning with a bridal white dress encrusted with sprays of crystal beading.

DIY - The Joys of Melted Beads

Winter Preserves

June 8th, 2011 by | 4 Comments

The chilly season has just begun however as we pull out the extra blankets, get the kettle ready for the boil and find ourselves sentimentally listening to ‘Here Comes the Sun’ by the Beatles whilst it buckets down outside, it doesn’t mean that colour has to go into hibernation the same way we want to join the bears and sleep in until Spring comes around.
