The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Sydney Confidential -

THE fash­ion set has put away their de­signer en­sem­bles for an­other year, but Fash­ion Week is about to heat up again to­mor­row with the start of Mercedes-Benz Fash­ion Week­end Edi­tion 2018.

Syd­neysiders are in­vited to the tick­eted, week­end con­sumer event to get a taste of what it’s like for the celebri­ties and fash­ion iden­ti­ties who grace the front rows, watch­ing fash­ion shows and Style Ses­sions hosted by in­dus­try ex­perts.

Stylist Lana Wilkin­son said guests could

ex­pect to see plenty of strong sum­mer trends on the run­ways this sea­son, with over­sized sleeves and Vic­torana-in­spired de­tails among the stand’s wear trends. “It’s very girlie and fem­i­nine,” she said. “Think Pic­nic At Hang­ing Rock, high necks, em­broi­dery; we saw a lot of th­ese styles at We Are Kin­dred and Thurley.” Ms Wilkin­son said bold reds and pinks were also a ma­jor stand­out trend guests could ex­pect on the run­ways at this week­end’s MBFWE. “That burst of colour is very much on trend,” she said. Tonight, fash­ion in­dus­try iden­ti­ties in­clud­ing as Pip Ed­wards, Tah­nee Atkin­son, Me­gan Ir­win and Nathan Jol­liffe are ex­pected to re­turn to Car­riage­works to cel­e­brate at the con­sumer event’s of­fi­cial launch party, which will fea­ture a per­for­mance by indie pop band and de­signer duo Client Li­ai­son.
