The Exclusive Collection | by Asilio

Asilio, one of Australia’s trending fashion labels, has teamed up with some of our favourite fashionistas to create their new and exclusive Spring collection.

The face of the brand and Head Designer, Cynthia Farchione, collaborated creativity with 8 fashion icons, and the calibre so far has been exceptional.

Each of the 8 dresses have been released one by one over a period of 8 weeks, and named after the style icon. Some of the released dresses were sold out within hours!

To kick off this special collection, the first dress released was “The Nadia Dress”.
Co-designer Nadia Bartel, designed a white off-the-shoulder midi dress with patterned mesh as the lower half. An absolute masterpiece.

The second dress release was by the Senior Buyer for Australian and International Designer Womenswear at Myer, Tenielle Fergusson.

Tenielle co-designed a black and white fish tail midi dress, with plunge neckline. This dress is exclusively sold in Myer – not on Asilio’s website.

The third release is my current favourite, “The Rebecca Dress”. The flawless Rebecca Judd co-designed an absolutely stunning number – the detail is incredible. I wore this gorgeous dress to Sofitel’s Girls Day Out earlier this month. That day I received so much attention and compliments – the dress was certainly a hit.

The blush pink is a part of this season’s pantone, perfect for Spring racing, hen’s parties and other day time events. And the detail in the dress, is amazing. Not to mention the stunning keyhole on the back.

A week later, “The Rozalia Dress” was released. A woman who needs no introduction, Rozalia Russian co-designed this dress with Cynthia. The dress is a blush pink midi with sleeves. It comes with two waist bands; one with a bow and one without. Ideal for this year’s Oak’s Day.

To be released on the 3rd of October is “The Lana Dress”. The co-designer of this dress is none other than Australia’s best stylist. Lana is quite daring when it comes to fashion, and loves a statement element in every outfit she assembles. Lana is excited for the release of her dress and tells me that it’s absolutely gorgeous and perfect for Spring Racing! I can’t wait to see it!

And the final instalment to this 8 piece collection is “The Jasmin Dress”, which will be released on the 10th October. This co-design, Jasmin Howell, also known as Friend in Fashion, is one of Australia’s favourite style icons. I am looking forward to seeing her rendition of the ultimate dress for this season.

The Best of MSFW 2016 | SS17

Another year, another amazing Spring Fashion week in Melbourne. This is definitely my favourite time of year. There is nothing like getting ready for all the fun Spring events. And seeing what our favourite Australian designers have in store for us this glorious season is like an early Christmas!

Normally when I see a couple of gorgeous outfits on the runway, within moments I know what I’m wearing to each Spring carnival, each party, and each event in the coming months. However, this year there were too many jaw droppers to pick from, it was a lot harder to choose favourites when I loved everything! Why can’t there be 3 Derby days haha 😛

This year I attended Contemporary and Spring Carnival runways at Town Hall, as well as the David Jones and Rokk Ebony x Collins Place Runways. Each one was thoroughly enjoyable in their own right.

In terms of colours that will be coming through this Spring and Summer – there were a lot of earthy colours amongst the collections; from orange, to yellow, to bright red. These colours were expressed either through an Aztec inspired contemporary style or structured and minimal; letting the bright colours be the hero feature. Other colours that will prominent, in Spring especially is pastel pink and blue. These colours will come through in various varieties of lace – and there will be a great deal of fringing and tassels. Other styles that are continuing through this season is off-the-shoulder, culottes and midi length dresses and skirts.

Here are some of my SS17 runway favourites this year.
