Aje SS12/13: Details

Nobody dared breathe during the Aje show at Paspaley store today – and it was quite unanimous that the collection was one of the best seen this Fashion Week.

It was very much agreed by trending topics, and Instagram overload, that this afternoon’s Aje show was one of the most beautiful shows of this Fashion Week. The Paspaley boutique at Martin Place was completely transformed to evoke something of a shipwreck – and the heavy embellishment of the pieces, as well as the organic (and clearly aquatic) cuts and shapes certainly complemented that. I loved that the collection was able to incorporate their signature sequins into everyday cuts and shapes, with a lot left to the imagination of the viewer.

Mandy and I were reinspired to return to childhood dreams of being mermaids. Let’s roll with that.

I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful all the pieces were that I thought it would be best for me to just share my favourite details that I snapped. What do you think? As much as I’m not at all an over-embellished dresser, I would die to get my hands and camera on one of these beauties. Imagine wearing those sequin-pocketed shorts to Uni daily (in different colours too, I hear)!

What do you guys think?

I’m off to run 13km in Nike She Runs the Night now! Wish me luck!
