These are the Fashion Week trends you’ll be shopping this winter

As Afterpay Australian Fashion Week 2022 draws to a close, we’re busy digesting the looks that graced the runways. (Also, the next-level street style.)

There’s no doubt the Resort 22/23 collections dazzled us. This year our favourite local designers – plus a few new faces – offered up fresh perspectives on many of the Summer fashion trends we’ve come to know and love. Simple sundresses got an update with relaxed draping, sheer fabrics were cut into streamlined shapes for an unfussy take on femininity, and cut outs multiplied. One thing’s for sure – after a dreary winter we’re only too happy to embrace the newness that’s on the horizon.

The best bit? There’s no need to wait for the weather to warm up to get amongst. Head to Westfield Sydney shop the most important trends to come out of Australian Fashion Week 2022 right now.

Modern draping

If ‘draping’ makes you think of formal gowns, it’s time to reevaluate. On the runway at Aje, the technique added elegance to that casual Summer stalwart – the sundress. Function met form in relaxed silhouettes that flattered and defined without adding rigid (read: uncomfortable) structure.

Kooky cut-outs

Cut outs, placed in unexpected spots, created interesting silhouettes that were more edgy than sultry. On the runways at Sass & Bide and Aje, designs were styled simply to dial down sex appeal.

Sheer…everything

See-through statement pieces made several appearances on the runways, with designers favouring a transparent take on Summer party dressing. The vibe was decidedly grungy, with dark lace at Sass & Bide.

Statement suiting

It’s hard to make Summer suiting feel current, but several ensembles hit the mark. The energy was laidback and wearable, with Sass & Bide’s vivid interpretation. While Oroton embraced muted tones.

Gorgeous green

The undisputed colour of resort ‘23, green was the star of many a runway show. At Oroton, things got off to a solid start with a skirt set rendered in kelly green. Aje went ladylike with seafoam lace, while Sass & Bide mixed in bold splashes of black.
