Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has kicked off, and Aurelio Costarella has enthralled us all with an ethereal, visually captivating and sensory fashion installation. His influences, including visual arts, music, and architecture flow throughout the collection and the installation itself, featuring complementing artworks by Waldemar Kolbusz and an eerily beautiful performance by Grace Woodroofe. The collection is a representation of women at both their strongest and most vulnerable, with the artworks a testament to the changing characters of a woman and styles of a woman, whether it be playsuit, dress or gown. Overall, the Grecian elegance that exuded from the collection was finished with the dominating Poseidon corset and dress (pictured below) - a symbol of the powerful woman who is most prevalent today.
