City nights are charismatic, enigmatic and all round magical, especially when accompanied by the presence of fashion.
Last night, Alexis George Couture and Lexi Clothing held their runway show at the Adelaide Fashion Festival Runway in Hindmarsh Square and the collections were truly awe-inspiriring.
The Adelaide Fashion Festival, now in its eighth year, is South Australia’s premiere festival of all things fashion and design, with eighteen events over the four day period. Labels from Paolo Sebastian, C/MEO Collective and SIG the Label have embraced the festival with open arms and 2015 is shaping up to be a much grander event that ever before.
Under the twinkling garland of lights and the glasses of sparkling, Adelaide’s fashionistas made their way to the event, dressed to impress. Head designer at TYLR-AUS, Chris Kontos, and the man himself Jaimie Sortino were sat front row, with fashion editor at The Advertiser, Anna Vlach, also keeping her eye on the designs crossing the catwalk.
Lexi Clothing premiered first, taking and edgier, bolder stance on fashion. Adelaide’s own Tori Trigg opened the show in a black-and-gold two piece adorned by fierce make-up and killer heels. Both pantsuits, bodysuits and full length gowns made an appearance, all sticking to shades of blacks and nudes.
Alexis George Couture, designed by Pat Georgiou, presented quintessentially feminine pieces in pastels, creams and lace. Aspects of Hollywood glamour and red carpet chic oozed from the runway to the onlookers, with full length and midi length gowns flowing. With her creations seen on the red carpet at events like The Brownlow, it was no surprise to see the calibre of the collection adorned with such glamour.
The Adelaide Fashion Festival runs until Sunday, October Twenty-fifth
