MBFWA: Ginger & Smart S/S 2012

Day One: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia: Ginger & Smart S/S 12/13
Collection: Neonature

The last show of the day one for OPI was a celebration, as Ginger and Smart celebrated 10 years in fashion, celebrating their muse – an inspiring woman of contrasts. Sisters and creative geniuses, Genevieve and Alexandra Smart were excited to introduce media and buyers to their latest S/S 12 collection, Neonature. They told media that their newest collection "is inspired by the futuristic elements of nature. We loved the balance and contrast of raw nature within a future landscape of graphic architectural lines: water that looks like liquid metal; the neon colours of natural gases; the wild colours and shapes of cellular biology and the graphic lines of ferns and blue-bird feathers." Beautiful summer hues of bright blue and lime green reminds us of summer fun, fresh fruit, and most importantly to remember that fashion is not to be taken too seriously. We are loving the chunky round earrings and rings which finished each look as well as the futuristic sunnies. Montana Cox was one of the gorgeous models on show.
