Kate Sylvester SS 2010-2011

This collection is so so sweet. Preppy separates in pretty pastels. Oversized neck ties, socks with sandals, leather hot pants, oh my oh my!!

ps. Kind of reminded me of something Karen Walker would do. NO. 1 FAN.

I die for this!

Alex Perry SS 2010-2011

Attending the Alex Perry show was lots of fun. Waiting in line for 40 minutes in sky-high pumps however, was not so much fun. It's amazing how long you actually wait for these things to start to then only sit for what seemed like 5 minutes! I did however spot a few celebs while waiting in a crowded line. Designer Camilla stood right next to me (wearing one of her gorgeous floor-length kaftans of course), Erika Heynatz is more beautiful in person, Napoleon looked just as made up as he does on TV, Joh Bailey sat nearby and I also spotted Pip Edwards looking effortlessly cool. There were a few others I could go on naming, but, let's not make this about the crowd.

The 130-metre runway was pure genius. It allowed the perfect opportunity to get a second glance at one of his amazing gowns, not to mention, coming in handy if you happen to miss one of them! Some of those models walked past so quick I had only caught a glimpse of the bodice and missed the rest.

The collection itself was named 'Arabian Princess'. At first I was a little unimpressed with the collection not actually living up to it's theme, but I then understood once Alex expressed his vision and mentioned that it was his 'interpretation' of what an Arabian Princess' would look like.

The detailing on some of the gowns was exquisite.  Lots of glitz and glamour I think. An abundance of heavily sequined gowns, lace nudes, feathered masterpieces, structured wonders, lilac tulles, frills and ruffles.

I have attached some of the shots I took with my camera (sorry about the quality), but I will soon post runway shots once I have sourced them!

Zimmermann SS 2010-2011

I am usually a very big fan of Zimmermann but sadly I didn't love this entire collection - The collection, named 'The Vanishing Point' was a concoction of geometric prints and soft floral prints. The idea, the designer said last week, "started with a simple progression of tonal colour, punctuated with black and white. As the collection evolved, we started to work with lines and geometric shapes, and melded these with naturally beautiful elements to create contrast but garments that feel all at one". Whilst I do believe the collection worked really well together, I have selected just a few, which I thought were the best.

Love the 50's style bikini briefs - super cute.
