Grand Slam into Australian Fashion Labels!

This week I had the privilege of attending the Grand Slam Series at the Fashion BNKR. I got a sneak peak at some of the gorgeous styles and prints we’ll be seeing this season from Australian Fashion Labels.

Although we saw many gorgeous designs from all of the AFL brands, I’d have to say that C/MEO COLLECTIVE was a stand out to me, personally. All of the labels carry a wide range of diverse and innovative designs for every individual style and for my style it was the C/MEO COLLECTIVE range. It’s the label that specializes in unique shapes and prints. The print that I fell for was the “geo” collection – in particular “THE COMEBACK VEST” in geo black. It’s a trench style that features a wide collar, front pockets and a tie at the waist for the perfect silhouette. It’s all about the vest this Autumn/Winter and this piece can be a staple for the cooler and warmer seasons – a must have for every wardrobe! Another stand out print was the 70’s inspired “STRIPE PRINT” – a combination of red, navy, white and cream to create a fresh diagonal stripe print.  Team it with high waisted flares for the ultimate retro look! My favourite shape from C/MEO was the “SAY IT RIGHT” collection. The pieces feature a deep v-neck but (here’s the twist) with a choker collar! Still with the boxy silhouette that C/MEO is famous for but with an even fresher feel. Great to wear on a night out, layered with a blazer, or even a floor length cardi for everyday wear. (Check out all of these pieces below!)

My favourite colours to wear range from black to white to grey (and maybe some other neutrals in between), which is why I styled a minimalist look for the event. I wore my wardrobe go-to, white culottes and a black, high neck, ribbed knit layered under my, wardrobe favourite, the “THINK TWICE BLAZER” from Finders Keepers. This piece is every minimalists essential! Style it minimally like I have for a simple, chic look or go bold and team it with a bright colour or edgy print. Australian Fashion Labels deifnately has you covered this season!
