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