2013 MBFWA: Aurelio Costarella
This year marks a milestone for a number of local designers; Camilla and Marc and Jayson Brunsdon are both celebrating ten years, and Aurelio Costarella is marking a whopping 30 years in the fashion industry. The show was pure Aurelio — red carpet worthy gowns rich with embellishment to rival that of any couture house. Asymmetrically tiered tulle skirts added drama to sequinned bodices, waterfall draping made chic cocktail dresses landuid in a 1940s way and nipped-waistlines and tulle-draped corsets injected a sense of romance to the mash up of ready to wear and couture creations.
- Colours: Sage, bronze, putty, grey, taupe, khaki, gold, white and black.
- Trends: Embellishment, Grecian draping, sheer panelling, tulle and corsetry.
- Key Looks: Beautifully detailed gowns that were made for the red carpet.
