Best and worst of Australian Fashion Week day three – Daily Mail

Australian Fashion Week day three was filled with all kinds of weird, wonderful and very memorable fashion displays – both on and off the runway. 

Tuesday got off to a slippery start when a model tripped over at the Project NextGen runway at Sydney’s Carriageworks.

The show – which is dedicated to emerging Australian fashion designers – threw up a bizarre array of elaborate nose piercings, risque one pieces, face wear and billowing separates. 

While some models took to the catwalk wearing floor-length billowing tartan dresses, others sported large boater-style hats and metallic knee-high boots.

Some of the outfits proved to be more risky than others. One sweeping white dress and boots worn by one of the models proved to be her downfall when she fell over on the runway.

Designers included in this year’s Project NextGen line-up boasted the likes of Gold Coast designer, Isabelle Quinn, Sydney local, Meredith Bullen, and Victoria Bliss among others.

The talented new personalities were selected by an experienced panel of industry insiders to launch their collections on the worldwide stage.
