First it was the film industry, now it seems that it is fashion’s turn to highlight the creative talents of Australians. During New York Fashion Week, the Australian flag was held high as two of our brands, Sass & Bide and Zimmerman took to the catwalks.
After a six-year hiatus from the New York parades, Sass & Bide dazzled the crowd as they showed polished blazers, colour-blocked ensembles and embellished mini-dresses. Described as a neatly styled, mature collection, the brand made a splash to increase their exposure in the US market before the opening of their first international flagship store in New York later this year.
But not to be outdone, Zimmerman presented a collection with all their trademark details. Flirty, feminine shapes, as well as diaphanous textures (silk and organza) and hero swimwear, all meshed with shimmery metallics, eye-catching prints and cut-out shapes.
