Day two of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia kicked off on Monday at Sydney’s Carriageworks with a total of nine designers set to display their work on the runway.

Kicking off the day at 10am was famed Australian designer Alice McCall whose 2018 resort collection wowed the front row with a sea of eye-popping ostrich feather looks, sheer dresses in rose and apricot and golden get-ups reminiscent of the 1980s.

True to her signature bohemian and effortlessly chic style, the designer’s showcase included all kinds of impressive fabric techniques including hand embroidery, custom in-house laces and stunning understated embellishments.

Netted dresses and playsuits were also on display, as well as the designer’s signature ruffled dresses and jumpsuits, floral stamped designs and Eighties style off-the-shoulder sets in floral print.

Pretty pastel hues, ruched sleeves and whimsical ruffles were a favourite in the new collection – a staple in the Alice McCall’s look books since she first launched.
