MBFWA trend report: Ruffles
Frill seekers look no further - 2017 called, and they want you back.
Ruffles in all shapes and sizes have been parading down and to the runway at MBFWA this past week. From peplum to ra-ra and anything else you can imagine, the frilled flounce layer is a wardrobe must. Whether it's worn ultra-feminine in florals and pleats, or a more modern chic with sheer monochromatic vibes, you can ruffle your feathers any which way you please this season.
Ruffle queens Alice McCall, We Are Kindred & Macgraw showed us vintage styled frills that are perfect for the girliest of girls on the catwalk. Toughening up the softest of layers was Tash Sefton on the front row circuit with killer boots and a leather biker, taking the feminine frill from neat to street.

The peplum waist and hemline made its triumphant return on Karla Spetic & Pageant’s showings via chic sheer & mesh shirts and dresses. Zhivago also showed us how to take peplum to the party with a sequinned mesh midi leading the show.
Crowd favourites Bec & Bridge brought the ruffle for the everyday girl. The collection was peppered with ruffles throughout. Notable pieces were a white asymmetrical dress in polka dot, alongside bright red trousers with ruffle detailing, the ultimate off the shoulder top, crisp business shirts re-invented and a daring red silk number.
Hansen & Gretel, our silk basics mecca, showed us a sweet mix of gingham and tropical florals accented with ruffle and frill detailing, perfect for that effortless European summer holiday look.
