MBFWA: Bless'ed Are The Meek Spring/Summer 13-14













If I could own every piece in Bless'ed Are The Meek's Wanderlust SS13/14 collection, I would be a very happy woman. Designed by Maria Maung, Wanderlust was the label's third appearance at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Showcased on Thursday 11th April, the inspiration behind Wanderlust collection was simple and beautiful: open spaces and places that transcend time. Maria was drawn to natural landscapes shot in the Northern Territory by artist Murray Fredericks. Amazing time-lapse video footage, captured by Murray in the Northern Territory, is the introduction to the runway show and, accompanied by an exclusive mix from DJ Jonny Seymour, sets the scene for the audience in attendance. In collaboration with Skin Footwear, Maria co-designed custom made shoes especially for the MBFWA collection show. Sports tape label KT Tape was placed carefully onto model’s skin, furthering the sports-luxe inspired aesthetic that we are seeing across most collections at MBFWA. Favourite Aussie models Sam Harris and Montana Cox graced the runway for the memorable, effeminate show.

Hair: Craig Smith, Director for Alter Ego Italy was selected to create the modernistic runway look for Bless’ed are the Meek’s collection show. Models wore an edgy ponytail with a beautiful polished symmetrical part detail, created using Alter Ego Italy products.

Makeup & Nails: The brows are sooooo cool and this is one of our favourite beauty looks at this year's MBFWA. MAC Makeup Director James Molloy collaborated with Bless'ed Are The Meek on a directional and ethereal look. Models were given nude skin, with a strong feathered brow and a highlight white shimmer around eyes. Nails were complimented with nude colour, skin.

Bless'ed Are The Meek Wanderlust collection will arrive in both domestic and international retailers from August 2013. Click here to visit the website for Bless'ed Are The Meek.
