More than 70 designers launched their S/S 15/16 collections at Fashion Week in Sydney and Hannah Klose was on the frontlines to capture the magic.

Brace yourself for a broad spectrum of colour with a palette of pastels, neutrals, monochromatic and metallic tones taking centre stage.

The decade of free love, flares and fringed trim has made a comeback with retro prints, lace and flared everything, from wide-legged pants, to trumpet sleeves, dominating the runway.

Sydney based label, Aje, has embraced the swinging 70s style, showcasing exaggerated a-symmetrical bell skirts, flares, long-line vests, denim cut out dresses and fringing detail.

Their new mix of day-to-night wear also features culottes, crisp collared shirts, maxi dresses with thigh-high slits and floor-length evening gowns, embellished with sequins in keeping with the Aje aesthetic.

Alice McCall has also jumped onboard the retro train with her Cruise collection. From swirly prints to bold metallics, hues of copper and Rasta red, the new line will have you making a 70s statement this Spring/Summer.

Her signature playsuits are fabricated with contemporary crochet, sheer lace and ornate embroidery; while their architectural design provides a sculptured silhouette perfect for traversing the seasons.

Aje’s collection is available for purchase from July to December and McCall’s is on sale from October/November.
