Lisa Ho's Autumn/Winter 2013 runway show really was the calm after the storm. Prior to the pounding of the catwalk, we got busy backstage at Lisa's Surry Hills head office — snapping away like mad and chatting to the lady of the hour amongst the mahem. Then we took our seats. Cue slow exhale. It was an intimate, industry-only crowd who came to see Lisa's A/W line-up, with even the most hardened fash-pack members wearing subtly impressed smiles thanks to her elegant offerings. Tailoring, specifically her perfectly-cut jackets, were a highlight — as were the graphic botanical prints. Lisa Ho may have just done the impossible and made us wish away the impending Summer heat. Best hurry up and take your seat, you'll want to see this.
