The up and coming designers you’ll be wearing next season
The St George Next Gen showcase is always one of the most exciting parts of Fashion Week.
In the one show you get a taste of a whole bunch of up and comers on the fashion scene.
Last year’s showcase included Third Form, a brand that is now one of the most highly regarded new labels in Australia. The brand is even stocked on THE ICONIC . The 2016 show also included Anna Quan, a label that this year has a stand-alone show and is stocked on Harper and Harley’s store The Undone.
Basically, when a designer is included as part of Next Gen, you know they’re the next big thing!
This year, six designers took part in the showcase and these “ones-to-watch” are the brands that you’ll be wearing next season.
From essential basics to key statement pieces, Isabelle Quinn has got the fashion forward girl covered. Every piece designed is a well-thought out addition for your wardrobe.
