Amongst the clatter of high heels down the runway and back-stage mayhem that enveloped the shows of Sydney’s prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2013, team Organika Hair were inspired by high fashion styling we’re looking forward to recreating during Autumn and Winter.
Day three of MBFWA saw designer Lisa Ho send models onto the runway with strong crimson power pouts that contrasted beautifully with a curious slicked-back hairstyle (above). The simple futuristic look was captured in soft, long flowing lines, accompanied by hair that took the sleek ponytail to a different universe with strong parting and vibrant colours thrown into the mix. This look shows us that simplicity can be doubly impactful.
Lisa Ho – hair was both minimal and boisterously shot with color.
Stepping boldly onto the runway were the fabulously-dressed models from Romance Was Born. This much-anticipated show certainly did not disappoint, with looks that were typically idiosyncratic – bold, brave, colourful and high-impact. The show’s kabuki-esque makeup and hair schema featured vibrant wigs that captured the playful 60’s feel of the psychedelic collection. There was also a little ‘messy bed hair’ that emphasized the texture and radical prints throughout the collection. Makeup similarly made no apologies, with decorative bobbles, circles of color on cheeks and giant cartooney eyes confirming that ‘more is more’ this season.
Leaving behind the conventional idea of the natural beach babe, the beauty styling notes from We Are Handsome brought a beachy feel with opulent flair. Heavy blue eye shadow and brighter than bright coral lips were seen on the scantily-dressed models, with big hair harking back to the trending 80’s vibe, made full with heavily curled, perky extensions. Super retro and super achievable for those without personal stylists!
In contrast to many of the bold, out-there looks featured at this years’ MBFWA were the subtle and classic stylings of Toni Maticevski. The simple elegance of a mid-height bun fashioned into a box complimented the classic structure of this operatic collection. The lady-like look certainly will be hot this season!
