Over 90 designers showcased their work and many of these were young Australians with an incredibly inspiring take on next Summer’s fashion trends. Sustainability in fashion played a major role.

3. Gillian Garde
Gillian Garde graduated in 2017 and focuses on combining new with old to create modern designs. I love her choice of fabrics. The fact that some are very playful whilst other looks totally contemporary with an edge of trend.
4. Ingrid Husodo
Ingrid started her independent career as one of the Miss World Fashion Designers (2013). The label is a favourite of famous Indonesian actresses. Her designs are made up of interesting prints creating a story to the whole look.

9. VALUSTA X 10/10
VALUSTA x 10/10 is founded by two Australian-Vietnamese designers, Tiana Van and Khang Nguyen. Their vision is to blur every line and redefine the term “modern luxury”.

Roopa is a luxury womenswear label that emulates a contemporary fusion of art and design for relaxed ready-to-wear fashions.
