Clockwise from top lef: Philosophy; Jason Wu; Rodarte
Looking at a designer's labor of love walking on elaborate and unique runways really does add a whole new dimension to the experience. (Not that there's anything wrong with a classic runway, which I assume are created such that it's only about the designs. So that nothing detracts and distracts from fashion itself.)
Of the ones I've taken note of... Rodarte gets about 100 bonus points for creativity in putting those lights in the crates (is that what you would call it?) and constructing something that won't look out of place at an art installation. But then again, every Rodarte piece is a work of art so maybe that's the whole point! I approve of Jason Wu's catwalk just as much- it's a walkable shiny disco ball and its dark tones does wonders! (The Philosophy runway was just a bit crazy...)

There are simply some fabrics in the world where photos just won't do. BCBG used such light soft silks for SS11 that the dresses literally floated down the runway and all I could do was admire the movement. This is really minimalism speaking for itself. In my mind, I see a girl being late to a function... so she throws on one of these dresses, ties her hair up, and runs out the door looking effortless.

Vena Cava is telling me to go on holiday like you would not believe; Nicholas K- a TFSer described this collection as "Alexander Wang meets Vanessa Bruno meets Rag & Bone" and I totally agree as I see all the elements there (I suppose it's ok, if not very original, since I love all of the three mentioned designers!). Sachin + Babi is subtlety with edge... a caged siren; Jen Kao- A pirate lover, a desert romance.

Put on your most comfortable pair of walking shoes (remember they should be easy to slip on and off) and get shopping tomorrow! Starting at 5.30pm in Martin Place and ending stylishly with an official Vogue party at The Ivy. Buy a FNO tee by Gap, from the pop-up in Martin Place for $25, to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. More info on the official Fashion's Night Out website.
The Spring Summer 2011 RTW shows are about to commence and I have four words: Let the pandemonium begin. I might have mentioned it a long time ago, but one of the greatest fashion charms about living in Australia is that technically... we can test the water by picking apart SS runway/beauty inspiration and having a go a good six months before our Northern Hemisphere counterparts! I've taken note of all my pre-show favorites and big name must sees, and am now excitedly wondering what is going to be added to my ever growing summer fashion priority list.
