Alvin’s inspiration was a Melbourne music venue called The Crystal Ballroom and its patrons – the mods, the skinheads, the sharpies and the goths of the late 70s and early 80s. The show began with excerpts of the series displayed on the screens. With red lipstick, dark eye make up and teased hair-dos, the models were made to look an interesting combination of vampires, goths and punks. The jewellery was a pivotal factor in the show, with chains hanging from the model’s necks and legs, and their eyebrows built up with either silver, gold or black. Even the shoes, which were scuffed-up Doc Martens and combat boots, were draped in chains. The garments were made up predominantly of black, white, red, stripes and denim, and laden with studs. There were also many tailored pieces, however, which were styled with suspenders. Some of the pieces were even two-toned with white and red, roughly merged to look like blood stains, fitting the vampire theme perfectly. The show also defied conventional model formation, by interspersing single models with models walking two or three at a time, and a finale composed of all models walking at once.

In 2006 prior to Rosemount becoming the major sponsor of Australian Fashion Week, Mercedes Australian Fashion Week held a start-up show for up and coming designers with cash prize incentives.

The video includes various designers such as Romance Was Born, Saint Augustine Academy, Silences is Golden and Christopher Esber.

Bring it back?

Sydney-based fashion label Saint Augustine Academy were pleased as punch to meet up with Big Day Out favourites The Horrors today at their Surry Hills store.

Farris, Joe, Rhys, Tom and Joseph all picked up a few goodies from the indie-rock-n-roll-skewed label with the skinny cut suit pants and tailored shirting a favourite with all.

Over the past few weeks the blog has been relatively quiet but from this weekend onwards we’re back into the swing of things for 2010, so stay tuned.

Song for the Mute, Arj Selvam and Saint Augustine Academy shop catalogues have all been launched this week.

An array of Australian and NZ labels will be presenting this year at Capsule in New York on the 18th and 19th January. We wish the brands good luck, especially for up and coming Vincent & Vincent.
