The standout for me at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia has been from Sydney babe Emma Mulholland who debuted her Resort 17 collection. The ‘alien chic’ space punk themed pieces feature glitter, sequins, custom denim jackets and metallic footwear, with visible influences from Bowie and Prince. The pieces are eccentric but definitely wearable, giving off surfer girl by day punk by night vibes.
Mulholland made her break in the 13/14 season when her first collection was presented, and since her designs have been worn by notable influences such as Kanye West, Grimes, MIA and Kimbra.
The abstract coloured hair feature and face glitter was a perfect choice to stylise the collection, and the natural face makeup kept the models looking youthful and fresh.
