Attending runway shows is always a little bit exciting. There is a thrill in the air as people rush about backstage, the crowd filters in to their seats and the photographers stand their ground in the media pit. Usually I’d be in there with them but this year as the #TS14PlusInsider I sat front row and it was brilliant, better still it was free to attend so you could have too.
The TS14+ runway shows were held around lunchtime to a crowded house within “The Hub” showcasing accessible fashion throughout Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, you can watch a sample of it in the video clip above. Now it’s time to share a few of my favourite pieces that are available to purchase now and a few things you should definitely keep an eye out for in October. Just click the images to find out more information on the collection.
Blues and pinks are always colours I’m drawn to, they just do something magical for my complexion. I really like the abstract paintbrush strokes in the print, not to mention the fact that it doesn’t require ironing but I did say to the team that I wasn’t entirely keen on the hanky hem. Then I was enlightened to the idea of layering it over something like this or like this and it made me rethink how I could wear it to suit my body and reflect my own personal style.
Keep an eye out for this hot little tunic as it’s sure to sell out fast. Neon orange paneling and monochrome print on trend in an easy-to-wear way. The light breathable fabric makes layering easier in the warmer months, especially for those who aren’t keen on too many layers. I personally like it with the lightweight cardigan, I’d pick this one for it’s versatility, I could totally rock it over swimmers.
I almost wore these to the show, they look so comfy. Whilst the print is bold when pared back with complimentary tonal colours they make an impact without being too crazy. The girls at the TS14+ office adore them, they say “It’s like wearing your PJ’s to work!”… winning!
Again, more acidic pops of colour for spring and summer, this time with citrus lime against black and white. I don’t know about you but I have a fair few capri pants and cardigans just like these, they’re total staples in my wardrobe. By updating my tunic collection with fresh new prints and seasonal colours I have a brand new outfit, ta da!
Pretty pretty pretty, this is one of those pieces that looks better in person. It’s so soft, feminine and yet again I’m drawn to the combination of pink and blue. I’d wear it with these and this too for a bit of a flirty girly look… I just wish my hair was long enough for a messy side braid.
As soon as I saw this outfit strutting down the runway I knew I’d need it and that Suger would steal it. Again with the pops of acid, this time incorporating it into a bolder print set on black and then layering casual tunics and adding a smart little jacket. I totally adore this look and would wear it just like this, I just have to be patient and wait for it all to be released.
This is yet another outfit I considered wearing to the show and it was purely for the pants. They reminded me of one of Monet’s paintings, thick impressionistic brushstrokes in gem stone hues. I like the smart casual drape of the blue top layered over the longer black laser cut out tunic. I actually did wear the cut out tunic on the day but more about my outfit in another post. For now I’ll leave you with this little selection of a few of my favourite things and a tease of things to come.
