LMFF Runway 7 with Frankie

Bushes on the runway? A novel inclusion. The designer’s work? Just as much.

Karen Walker stuck to her typical pastel colours, akin to the work we some come to life in her Karen Walker Eyewear range that promotes itself as a ‘candy bar’ around the world. A unique spin on the sensual tantalising that both food and fashion are that works so wonderfully on the runway.

The rule says that dots go with everything; clearly something the designer repeated throughout her mind when composing her collection, a bespoke and quirky display of New Zealander design.

Kuwaii’s popped structure in turning shoulders, the d√©colletage and hips into centres of attention worked uniquely with their combination of deep colouration and predominantly flat colours.

Limedrop’s eternally print-heavy focus on a washed-out preference for the naturally inspired was inspiring, encouraging women both adventurous and not to add a hint of activity into their wardrobes.

Leonard Street’s return to the ways of old with block colouring was notable, as was an obvious preference for everything on trend by way of skirts and featuring the leg as a staple of AW wear.

Secret South’s bold colouring, bold wintery prints and significantly warmer fabrics amongst urban tones struck a chord and made a marked impression on the overall motif of the runway: a celebration of country-girl-come city slicker for the¬†everywoman.

Gorman’s leather, wintery colours, prints and fabric features akin to the typical sass & bide work – more of earlier days – while showcasing more leg than most know what to do with ended the show in spectacular style.

My thanks to Meagan Harding of Meagan Harding Photography for her forever stunning work.
