Adelaide Fashion Festival 2012 | Emerging designers and bridal showcases

It's been a little while but I wanted to share with you some of the designs I was able to see at Adelaide Fashion Festival. Each year the festival closes with a showcase of emerging designers, and it was great to see more variety than ever before. To see two menswear designers in one show is quite unusual for this town, let alone two with plenty of potential: Morning Theft and Lachy Lang. It's a reflection of the sartorial habits of the local men, and as the market grows, I'm sure we'll see a healthier dose of menswear on our runways.

The other group show in the final week was a bridal show, which also functioned as somewhat of an ode to South Australia's top models, as they really shined in the gowns. Tickets to the show were sold commercially and I could hear many a bride-to-be ogling off potential gowns. If the decent turnout was anything to go by, we can expect to see it again next year.
