The prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia MBFWA is the perfect opportunity for homegrown designers to showcase their collection on a global stage.
The setting of Aje’s resort 2020 show was enough to set the mood: two Australian icons, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, bathed in a wintery sunset light while the entire Australian fashion industry looked on.
2018 saw renowned fashion siblings, Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman kick off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia – and we can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for us this year. The brands collection is known for the masculine tailoring with feminine silhouettes, directly inspired from naming-rights sponsor, Mercedes-Benz and their vehicles’ signature style.
This year, the dynamic duo and founder of Aje, Edwina Forest and Adrian Norris, will be opening MBFWA!
label will kick off MBFWA on Sunday 12 May by revealing its resort
collection in one of the fashion calendar’s most talked-about events of
Aje was created in 2008 to bridge the divide between urban
and coastal style. Designed by best friends Adrian Norries and Edwina
Robinson, the duo incorporates hand-made fabrics, delicate
embellishments, and genuine prints into their collections – all inspired
by the rugged beauty of their urban landscapes.
Aje focuses on
raw beauty; wearers of Aje embody femininity and effortless cool and
it’s not surprising this brand has been selected to lead the charge at
MBFWA this week.
In addition to this, MBFWA attendees can expect a
collection with the paintings of Brett Whiteley as muse. Whiteley is
one of Australia’s most celebrated artists, whose distinctive style
evokes lyrical sensuality with heavy dose of STUNNING.
This is an atmosphere where the creative worlds of art and fashion collide.
