With Crisp Styles, Sydney Welcomes The Afterpay Australian Fashion Week 2022

Back again this year, the glamour of the Afterpay Australian fashion Week begins with jam-packed runway shows to honor the renowned and emerging artistry in the fashion industry. Once more, we experienced the sheer joy of lights, camera, and action as the models walked on the runway with their heads high and straight under the spotlight and clicks of the camera shutters. Meanwhile, the seated designers, editors, influencers, and industry maestros lit up the space ambiance.

Day One of the 2022 Afterpay Australian Fashion Week opens with Bianca Spender unfolding her Resort 2023 collection at Carriageworks. The place gave us Déjà vu as we remembered her mother, the late Carla Zampatti, who had presented her 2020 spring collection on the same runway. The Bianca Spender label is a breath of fresh air in the coming years. Her show was pure-hearted, optimistic, and organized like a soft and keen play. Spender's obsession with the bias-cut silks was still the show's highlight but with a twist of modern silhouettes.

To make our noon refreshing; comes the Bondi Born collection at the White Bay Cruise Terminal, with pastel hues and qualified outlines; the collection displayed soothing oversized ensembles and cuts. Vibrant colors and contrasting shades were the cherries on the cake. But what more captivated our eyes besides the colorful, beautiful, and comfortable wear collection; were the jelly shoes. Even the footwear was detailed to match that of a monochromatic style. Overall, the Bondi Born show showcased a wonderful summer collection for exotic adventures.

At the Ken Done Gallery, we saw the rainbow colors shining on the Romance Was Born show. The show was a complete artwork of fabrics, patterns, and colors. The bold craftwork of vintage wool, shredded silk, and ribbons vibed into rainbow tweeds. Without the fear of being too much; audaciously, more and more pop and toned colors awoke gracefully. The Ken Done Gallery space refashioned into the impression of furry and merged blooming pieces; to shower the romance again at the Afterpay Australian Fashion Week.

As we all know, one of designer Gary Bigeni's dresses became a hit once Melissa Leong, the judge on MasterChef Australia, wore it on the reality show in 2020. That was a hand-painted and tie-dyed long-sleeved maxi dress. As the orders started rolling so quickly, more and more similar pieces were created but; in different colors that spoke Bigeni's style. A simple statement of baggy pants, stretchy dresses, and a tailored blazer was a great addition to the fashion week show. The collection of Gary Bigeni was the colors of the bright chalk and prints.

And like this, the day one of the Afterpay Australian Fashion Week was swarmed with radiant patterns, fabrics, and styles. All the designers, makeup artists, models, and other co-artists did a fantastic job of making the show remarkable from the moment it started; till it was time to close the show for the day. Moreover, it was worth watching and a joyous experience for us.
