Highlights from MBFWA 2019 Day one

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia kicked off on Sunday 12 May with a spectacular opening show from Aje.

Queensland designer brand Aje was the label to open the 2019 edition of MBFWA. The brand's resort collection, Bloomscape, was a curious celebration of Australian flora and the perfect way to commence the country's premier fashion event.

A wild medley of ruffles, pleats and prints, Bloomscape draws from the colours and shapes in the Australian lansdcape. Block wattle yellows, eucalyptus greens and bottlebrush reds formed the foundation of the exciting colour palette and was topped off with a dash of native-plant-inspired prints.

Of course it wouldn't truly be an Aje show without some striking silhouettes and showstopping dresses – and in this show there were more than a few. A one-shouldered ombre number was certainly one of the showstoppers of the night.

Full skirts, pleated ruffles and big sleeves were a clear motif for the label this year – a combination that could have looked dated. But Aje brought these elements together masterfully. In such a way that looked young, fresh, exciting and decidedly wearable.
