Thanks to Emerge Events, Ally Dunlop (stylist and partner in Rendezvous PR) and I, had a front row seat at the Emerging Designers show at the Teneriffe Festival. The Fashion Precinct transformed London alley, which included a fake grass runway with a white picket fence, VIP tables and Alfred and Constance’s pop-up bar.
Local talent was on display as part of the emerging designers showcase. The structured monochrome designs of Hungry Wolf the Label juxtaposed against the feminine, flowing designs of Anna Hulm, Ivy Rose Design Studio and Harriette Hill to the bright, futuristic cuts of Anessa.jai The Label.
We also bumped into Natalie from Interlaced Media.
Inspired by dance, Anna Hulm’s colourful designs are a perfect fusion of style and comfort. With soft, flowing silk her dresses are perfect for Brisbane’s warm climate.
Hungry Wolf The Label is dedicated to the elements, strong with a touch of edge to its collections. This collection featured geometric lines and a warm looking, looped cardigan/jacket, perfect for this cooler weather.
Ivy Rose Designs are conceived on the beautiful Fraser Coast. This collection showcased evening wear with sexy, flattering cuts and a monochromatic palette.
This Brisbane based designer, brightened up the runway with light-catching metallics, and geometric colour blocking to showcase their futuristic collection.
Harriette Hill is ethically and sustainably manufactured in Australia, minimizing their environmental footprint. Designer, Claire Goldsworthy is also a partner in Emerge Events, who organised the Fashion Precinct and are committed to showcasing Brisbane’s emerging fashion talent.
