Sydney-based Unisex brand Bassike are going to be among the highlights at this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. Get ready for an additional week of MBFWA madness!
Entering its 25th version this year, Fashion Week Australia is firmly entrenched in the present as the most iconic, important event on the sartorial calendar of the country. Now the place for current and emerging designers to form a reputation in Australia’s increasingly crowded style arena, it’s increasingly becoming a showcase to urge the industry’s most vital eyes on Australian collections.
Of course, it being Australia’s premier fashion event, MBFWA now without fail draws the foremost prominent members of Sydney’s street style set, from classic fashion and tailoring influencers, to those not afraid to push the boundaries of streetwear and haute couture. It creates a hell of a sight to behold.
And like in other cities, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is also the country’s calendar highlight in terms of fashion.
Once again, this fashion event will showcase the finest ready-to-wear collections of Australia for the upcoming year – a platform that has launched brands from Double Rainbouu to PE Nation and international success. And while the week still carries a heavily female slant, menswear is getting an increasing presence, with brands such as Bassike, Ten Pieces, and Song For The Mute which all have helped build their brand there.
It’s always worth tuning in to ascertain the simplest newcomers at the NextGen show also , while the indigenous showcase, featuring Australian fashion’s up and comers from First Nations communities, is now a must-watch.
