Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week Australia Spring/Summer 2012 Day 1 - Gary Bigeni, Ginger & Smart, Aurelio Costarella, Nicola Finetti and Life With Bird

Gary Bigeni

Needless to say, my favourite at Day 1 of MBFWA, Gary's draping was very subtle this season, but the colours were not, gorgeous cobalts and blues, marigolds, prints and neutrals. All in beautifully simple easy-to-wear shapes. Can you believe the designer himself helped me carry my heavy pram (well, my sister's - I was borrowing hers whilst visiting Sydney)? I felt so bad, especially since he was so lovely and I left the store/sale empty-handed...

Aurelio Costarella

Ginger & Smart

Nicola Finetti

I had semi given up on Nicola Finetti (who used to be one of my favourite Australian designers over 10 years ago), but I quite liked the floral prints and draped skirt and blazers:

Life With Bird

The closing dress was my favourite piece, gorgeous draping:
