In a fast paced industry, sometimes it’s very hard for an emerging fashion designer to get noticed and have their time in the spotlight.
Combining fashion and technology in one glorious spectacle, the Stagelabel Interactive Runway featured eight emerging designers along with collections all startlingly different from one another.
With creative designers spanning across Australia and overseas, those selected to feature in the runway were cast via online voting through Stagelabel’s site. And it seems the public had it right, as the event clearly showcased emerging talent in the best way possible with a runway that gave their collections the attention and adoration they deserved.
When thinking about the event as a whole, the word “diverse” is what comes to mind. Indeed, they were quite the collections to behold. Ranging from daywear, evening wear, swimwear and formal wear, it was a fascinating experience to revel in glitz and glamour of a runway event.
But a highlight of the night was definitely Nathea and Naseera Salleh, creators of Thea & Seera. Originally hailing from Brunei, the collection was an escapade through the exotic wonderland of Asia. With glamourous hues of gold, blue and plum, the designs presented an overall tropical feel that was both striking and eye-catching.
