Adelaide based, world class couture
And there ends another Adelaide Fashion Festival. This year, I spent more of my time behind the scenes but I did get to attend the Paolo Sebastian SS18 Couture Runway on the last Sunday. The Adelaide couture label, designed by Paul Vasileff, has caused a stir at the Adelaide Fashion Festival for quite a few years now and after seeing his show in 2015, I knew I’d be back.
For this year’s AFF, Paolo Sebastian answered all of my childhood dreams with its Spring/Summer 2018 Couture Collection in collaboration with Disney, Once Upon a Dream. In its tenth year, Paolo Sebastian provides a runway show experience like no other. There is a certain dreamy atmosphere to each runway; you become mesmerised with each piece as it glides down the runway at an almost slow motion pace. Witnessing these incredible creations just metres away makes you truly appreciate the craftmanship gone into each piece—it’s always a pinch-me moment.
All in all, the Adelaide Fashion Festival have definitely stepped it up this year! I was particularly impressed with the diversity of models chosen as well as the variety in local labels. Next year will always be bigger and better, so until then!
*Thank you to The Adelaide Fashion Festival for having me.
