MBFWA Buyers' Picks

Mixed in amongst the models, celebrities, editors and bloggers who attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia were a group of fashion experts keenly assessing and reviewing each piece that came down the runway — the buyers.

Buyers are the true trendsetters, carefully selecting what brands will sell and which pieces you’ll be coveting once they hit the stores.

As a sneak peek, we ask our two of our womenswear buyers, Kate Benson and Alix Manning-Davis, for their top buys from their favourite designers to tide us over until the next season.

Ginger & Smart

"This brand is one of our most popular brands in our designer range. I especially loved the easy fluidity of this dress — very feminine and elegant."
Kate Benson

Michael Lo Sordo

"Michael Lo Sordo's dresses are always a stand-out for me, like this beautifully pleated gown in marsala."
Alix Manning-Davis

Bianca Spender

"Another brilliant trouser suit from Bianca Spender. This one is made from silk dupion and can be worn to the office with a jacket or without for dinner."
Kate Benson

Alice McCall

"Alice McCall's collection this season was really fun and playful. This red crocheted dress was the opening look and it's a great piece for summer."
Alix Manning-Davis
