Australian Fashion Week: Designers to Watch

By Butterboom Writers  /  May 8, 2013

The cream of the crop from Fashion Week Australia.


With some industry insiders saying that it has the potential to become the fifth fashion week, Fashion Week Australia recently showcased the best of what the Aussie fashion industry has to offer. We at Butterboom are big fans of Australian designers, there’s something about their laid-back attitude and simple designs that means the clothes are truly wearable.

We have rounded up our top three designers for Fall/Winter 2013 for you to take a look at and we dare you not to like them as much as we do.

Christopher Esber
Christopher Esber was the name on everyone’s lips at Fashion Week Australia. His simple silhouettes and minimal lines are subtlly sculptural, featuring sheer panels and insets which add femininity while experiemental tailoring adds the wow factor.

Kym Ellery has already made a name for herself as one of the coolest designers in her native Australia. Her design strategy is to mix statement and wearable pieces together, and it works rather well. Next season, the drama comes from floor length skirts and the wearability from a bohemian staple, the shaggy faux-fur gilet.

Michael Lo Sordo
Michael Lo Sordo originally started training as a chef before turning his hand to fashion design, where his talents obviously lie. His overall look is romantic, minimal and sporty, which is created through sheer fabrics, a cool clean palette and use of tailoring and pleats to create form. The best thing about this collection? It could walk straight off the catwalk to the sidewalk, and it’s not often you can say that.
