Raffles' Dark Turn at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

Raffles College of Design and Commerce has continually impressed the fashion forward crowd since their inception into the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week line-up and has once again done so. This year, Gabriel Lee, Nara, Aurelia Santoso, XU's, Diyana Kosso and Aquintic showed off their Spring/Summer 2013/14 collections, featuring Australian supermodel Samantha Harris. Of the designers, Gabriel Lee, Aurelia Santoso and Diyana Kosso stole the show. Gabriel Lee's monochromatic geometric patterns and crisp white sheer proved us wrong that this trend is dying, Gabriel successfully retaining its wearability. Aurelia Santoso's collection darkened the mood with architectural, hard-edged minimalist silk ensembles taking over the runway, which were surprisingly feminine. Finally, Diyana Kosso's chiffon and lace abundant collection revealed a sultry yet demure female character, enhanced by the interesting cuts that flourished throughout the collection. Raffles has no doubt set the standard high for other fashion design colleges, it will be interesting to see what these young designers will produce in the future. A nod to the wonderful Creative Direction of Christopher McLaren from A Series of Fortunate Events and Crystal Tsoi!
