MBFWA Trend Report: The “statement” piece
Logos, embroidery words and sequinned sentences were the name of the game this year at Fashion Week.
This year at MBFWA you wanted your outfit to make a statement, quite literally - what did your outfit say?
There were so many emblazoned jackets, logo shirts and embroidered words going on both on and off the catwalk, it’s definitely a trend that has stuck with us.
Whether it was a brand logo (Gucci, anyone?), a statement or a jumble of words, you definitely wanted some text on you. Here are the ones we saw on the catwalk that are worth having a read.
Strateas Carlucci hit us with the sullen teenage vibes with words like SUSS & DEVO printed logo style.
Bec & Bridge embroidered and printed their latest collections namesake Meow Meow for the runway on a tshirt and denim mini, giving that rockstar chic vibe.

Hansen & Gretel worked their spring motto into gingham satin blazers, t-shirts and jumpers in a red cursive stating “stay wild child”.
The Innovators designer Handsy gave us some instructional advice for our hands with a statement swimsuit.
Romance Was Born possibly had the most to say with their collection ‘Electro Orchid’ drawing direct inspiration and collaboration from Del Kathryn Barton’s artshow of the same name, words featured on their veils, dresses, bodysuits & jackets throughout the show. The real stand out being a sheer full bodysuit covered with phrases like “wild carrot”, “my very own unicorn” and “feed my flowers”.
