The Haryono Setiadi show was one of our favourite events on the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia schedule this year. The production was strikingly simple, in a white studio space with high ceilings and natural light pouring into the room. The fabrics used in the collection floated on the models and had an origami-like quality in regards to the intricacy and folds in the designs we witnesses. With a clear water theme running through the pieces, the colourful hues and ethereal sheer silhouettes were bold yet soothing at the same time. Check out the collection for yourself below.


We have a winner! Congratulations to Wendy Buckeridge, a brand spanking new Nespresso x Superette Inissia coffee machine will be on its way to you shortly. Thanks to everyone who entered!


Kara looked great in this simple and clean look. Her top was by Staple the label and her great flared skirt was by Shakuhachi. We loved her shoes by Sass & Bide with their cutout sections and how cool is that white camera case?

It was impossible to miss Nicole in her insanely awesome sequined, studded, metallic outfit. The jacket and dress were both by Discount Universe, one of our favourite discoveries from our recent Sydney trip. Her glasses were by Versace, shoes by Nike, and the opal ring was by Lotus Mendes.

We shot Susie Lau of Style Bubble again this year at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. We love her colourful, eclectic style. Here she combined a fantastic ruffled Comme des Garçons jacket with one of the statement face dresses from Prada's last spring collection. Her rad sneakers are by Céline. Check out our previous shots of Susie here and here.

ALEX - We just got back from an incredible week in Sydney for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and I am so tired I can barely string a sentence together! The week was even more full on than last year with 10 shows to attend on some days, some offsite and some at the official venue Carriageworks. Once the shows were done, we would get something to eat and head back to the hotel to edit photos, write and also provide coverage for TV3 news online (click here for a sample). My favourite moment of the week was seeing Mino walk onto the runway after his debut as a designer. We were all so proud of what he had created and the fact that his designs were showed on the runway at MBFWA was absolutely amazing. My other favourite show of the week was Maticevski - a flawless collection, although I am still not entirely convinced about the models walking the finale with flowers in their mouths. Even though I am feeling absolutely shattered right now, I can't wait for next year!

Oh, and that #elevatorselfie thing we did every morning with Sam and Dana was pretty fun - it was a good way to wake us all up! P.S. don't worry the photo with the wine was taken in the evening! Photo via

CHIN - This week has been full of highs and this jacket is one of them. Yes, we managed to fit in a day of shopping on Friday. From past experience, I'm usually spoilt for choice in Sydney stores. This time however, I couldn't find anything I really liked - I'm thinking most probably because of post-fashion week fatigue. Then this DKNY jacket came along with all its black, neoprene, quilted, bomber goodness. It was on sale so really it was a no-brainer.

DANNY - There were a lot of spiritual high points to choose from this week with a hugely fun, busy, exhausting time over in Sydney for MBFWA. But I've chosen to focus on a purely materialistic one. I bought these glasses. I've wanted them for over a year since I saw them on Gary Oldman in Prada's campaign shots. I spotted them in Sunglass Hut a year ago but couldn't justify the price at the time, so when I saw them there again on sale I decided that was fate (a convenient rationale for spending money that I use frequently). Also, I negotiated a bigger discount than the sticker price. Double-fate.

MINO - I had one of the most amazing weeks of my life this week! I attended Fashion Week Australia with 5 of my best friends (the other 3 eyes, photographer Sam Lee and his hilarious wife Dana) but I also got to show the world some pieces I had designed in collaboration with Vanessa Kim for Daniel K. The morning of the show, I was up at 3am as the model call time was 6am at the venue. As usual, it was madness backstage, especially given the fact that there were 7 other designers showing in the New Generation show. The moment the first model stepped out onto the runway, there was a sense of relief that it was all going to be OK! I did think that I would feel a bit calmer after the show but the adrenaline was still pumping and I met a bunch of the buyers that gave me some amazing feedback about the show after which, the boys and I popped a few bottles of Champagne to celebrate. I learned so much from the whole process of design, manufacturing and show preparation and I am so grateful that Vanessa from Daniel K gave me this opportunity and I am so excited about what's to come…what that might be, I am not sure right now but I can't wait.
