The only designer on my lips for the week was Manning Cartell. I've seen my fair share of spectacular runway locations around the world, this was by far the best Australian runway location of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia - I will happily make that call. Held under the Harbour Bridge, it had that edgy warehouse feel but on an epic large scale with a stunning view of the opera house and ocean to boot. In harmony with their collection, utility met femininity in light minded designs that merged modern romanticism with industrial elements. Manning Cartell's Resort 17 show titled 'Diaphanous' incorporated bold graphic stripes with vibrant colour clashes, rich textures and patterns in a luxurious mix of layering, deconstruction and movement.
