The third day of Fashion Week saw designers like Bec & Bridge, MACGRAW and Christopher Esber hit the runway.

Day Three of MBFWA was stacked, with the first show at 9:00am and the last at 8:00pm. The day began with a fun-filled show from Katama by Garett Neff, aptly set at Andrew Boy Charlton Pool. Designers MACGRAW and Roopa followed, and of course, the Next Gen showcase - none were strangers to colour!

9:00am Katama by Garett Neff

The mens swimwear label showed a collection inspired by the preppy athleticism of vintage New England. We saw wearable and eclectic pieces in a colour palette of green, watermelon & white.





10:00am MacGraw

The MACGRAW show oozed vintage French colonial vibes, with just a dash of 70's style in the mix. We saw sky blues & fun patterns, pussy-bows and ra-ra skirts.

11:00am St George Next Gen

Last year's Next Gen included designer Anna Quan's collection and this year she's one of the headlining designers at MBFWA. Therefore, the Next Gen showcase really does show the future of fashion. This year was no exception with collections from Isabelle Quinn, Meredith Bullen, Sarah Hope Schofield, Stanzee, Stephanie Henly and Victoria Bliss.

5:00pm Bec & Bridge

Bec & Bridge never disappoints. The collection was clean and filled with showstoppers. There were slinky dresses galore in bright reds and blues and polka dots made an appearance in many of the looks. We were also pleasantly surprised to see some polished suiting in the collection.
