Several years ago, I was lucky enough to attend Australia Fashion Week, and one major thing stood out to me: Australian designers have a very strong point of view on the world of holiday clothing. With local brands such as Matteau, Christopher Esber, St. Agni and Bondi Born, I always take note of their directional approach to summer fashion. With the resort 2023 collections that recently debuted in Sydney, designers showcased the trends that are set to be huge next year.
To learn more about the most talked about collections trends and what everyone was buzzing about in the field, I spoke with Moda Operandi’s head of buying, Lisa Ruffle. After attending the shows in person, Ruffle unpacked the six big trends that will have the biggest impact and the cool brands to pay attention to. Ahead, see which ones make the cut and start buying them now if you’re an early adopter.
