Ellery has become a label that defines the Sydney ‘it’ girl: sexy but not slutty, bold but not overwhelming, quirky but not kitsch. This is owed to the fact that effortlessly stylish designer Kym Ellery is the perfect representation of the woman she designs for: a fun and fearless lover of fashion.
It was no surprise that her spring show in Sydney on Thursday brought out a few Aussie A-listers, including actress Theresa Palmer and model Lara Bingle, as well as former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins who made an unexpected appearance as a model in the show.
The collection was a fusion of modern and classic, with leather, embellishment and gold metallic alongside Victorian style corseting and an old-school print of girly bows. Tailoring was immaculate with a play on volume evident throughout. Waists were nipped while shoulders were exaggerated. Pants were tight with a bell-bottom or relaxed and wide.
Like with many of the collections at RAFW this year, the color palette included lots of pale hues like white, gray and pale pink with pops of brights like bold yellow.
