Cosmopolitan’s collaboration with VAMFF this year saw 7 talented designers feature the latest from their AW collections. The flirty, feminine and chic nature of Cosmopolitan was certainly matched by standout labels Cameo, Finders Keepers and Jaggar.
With vibrant colour pallettes, the collections brought a little light to Autumn Winter. The use of heavy silk fabrics, draping and boxed layering, created a feminine structure to graphic florals, stripes and marbel prints. The presence of a-line and swing skirts, peplum, crops and wide brimmed hats, allowed collections to harness the fun, playful nature of Autumn, as if you were running through and playing in the floating leaves of Fall. Developing a sense of innocence each look provided a contrast to this seasons consistent theme of monochomatic, androgynous architecture.
Our favourite looks? Though there were many we loved and coveted for our wardrobes this winter we ADORED:
Cameos structured use of pastel silks to create strong but feminine silhouettes. Finders Keepers take on #allwhiteeverything with a simplistic shorts and blazer combo. And finally Jaggars strong use of monochromatic fractured mozaic prints.
