Australia’s premier fashion event, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) will see the best in Australian fashion paraded down the runway from April 6-10 at Carriageworks in Eveleigh again this year.

As well as a few off-site shows, including Fashion Week mainstays Ellery, We Are Handsome and Emma Mulholland, Romance Was Born will be back at Carriageworks this year with undoubtedly another eccentric set design if last year’s kaleidoscopic runway installation was anything to go by. Recently revived label Desert Designs will also return to the runway this year.

Unfortunately there are a few notable absences from this year’s line-up, including Woolmark Prize finalist Christopher Esber and Karla Spetic, who presented a stunning show at last year’s Fashion Week. Taking their places are some bright newcomers such as 2012 graduate Leroy Nguyen, Hayley Elsaesser, Unif.M and NLP, which are just a taste of the local labels making their solo debut.

Stay tuned for our in-depth coverage of this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014.
