We hope you love bold metals because you're about to see a lot of them.

One of the biggest trends we saw from the catwalks of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia this year will have you shining bright like a diamond. We're talking bold, mirror ball-worthy metallics. Love it or hate it, metals are having a moment.

This dazzling call back to the heyday of disco has had a resurgence in some of the S/S 19 collections from prominent international designers. We're talking names like Balmain and Roberto Cavalli. So it's unsurprising that we're seeing this trend represented by Australian designers in their resort 20 collections at MBFWA.

Pink, gold or silver, we've seen metallics in all shades and shapes. Mariam Seddiq showed us sleek, tailored, silver metals and golden voluminous dresses. Alice McCall took a flirty approach, showcasing metallic dresses with all the bells and whistles – frills, ruffles, flowers and love-heart motifs. Even Thurley played with metals, showing a pair of asymmetric cocktail dresses.

Ready or not, bold metals are making a return like so many of the other 70s glam trends we've witnessed this week. Keep scrolling to see our favourite metallic looks from some of our favourite designers from MBFWA 2019.

And be sure to check out the rest of our MBFWA 2019 coverage including our wrap up of the Alice McCall show and our breakdown of animal print trend dominating street style this year.
