Several years ago, I had the chance to attend Australia Fashion Week, and one major thing stood out: Australian designers have a very strong point of view in the world of vacationwear. With local brands including Matteau, Christopher Esber, St. Agni, and Bondi Born, their directional takes on summer fashion is something I always take note of. With the resort 2023 collections recently debuting in Sydney, designers showcased the trends that are primed to be huge next year.
To learn more about the most talked-about trends from the collections and what everyone was buzzing about on the ground, I spoke with Moda Operandi’s buying manager, Lisa Ruffle. After attending the shows in person, Ruffle unpacked the six major trends that will make the biggest impact and the cool brands to pay attention to. Ahead, see which ones make the cut and start shopping them now if you’re an early adopter.
