MBFWA 2018 Opening Show Street Style Highlights

Today’s weather was horrendous to say the least but I’m glad it did not dampen my mood from capturing street style. In fact, the moments felt more natural and authentic which made it worthwhile being in the rain. 

To celebrate the opening of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, here are my favourite street style looks and moments which were shot for the City of Melbourne. Please seek my permission for usage by emailing hey@karenwoo.com.au with many thanks.

 

MBFWA 2018 Camilla and Marc Opening Show

Today we celebrated Camilla and Marc’s 15 years in business who opened the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week with a fully immersive show experience. Guests were transported an a beautiful Australian “rocky zen garden”. Sixty tonnes of sand were shipped in to create the 120 metre runway, bare rock and wind-stripped blossoms feature, reminiscent of arid Australian landscapes, yet giving a conceptual and futuristic appeal. If we take a look at Camilla and Marc’s latest design collection and styling, there were fringing, drapery metallic gowns, off the shoulder fitted tweed dress coats, oversized blazers, funnel sleeves, and denim pieces! If I may dare to say it had that “Balenciaga” inspired effect – masculine tailoring meets feminine silhouette. Even the accessories like the oversized bag and thigh high shoes were notable cool. Regardless, I loved that you can take any piece from the runway and restyle it in so different ways. I’m really digging the dress or blazer over the tight pants look.

April cover star of VOGUE Australia, CHARLEE FRASER, opened the show which I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing at the end of the show, and international supermodel, GEORGIA FOWLER was also seen walking the show.

Here are some of my favourite looks from Camilla and Marc’s resort 2018 collection. Enjoy!

 

 

MBFWA 2017 Final Street Style Highlights

Fashion week is finally over and out, and what better way to end it at the iconic Bondi Beach Icebergs.

I would like to thank all the PR agencies for their continual support and inviting me to the runway shows; and to all my photography and fashion friends for keeping me company on the streets! I loved every moment hanging out with you guys.

Though fashion week is over, street style is here to stay. So keep being you, be authentic, and be true to your style.

See you next year!

xx Karen Woo.
