Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: A preview into four designer's lookbooks

Albus Lumen “Paloma” top and “Sebastian” pants.

Lights, camera, runway… The designers behind four of our favourite labels give us a peep at their lookbooks before showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.


“I was inspired by Pablo Picasso, his work and the women in his life. I love that ’70s Spain era. The colour palette is quite dark this season – brown, navy, vintage blue and dusty pink.”

-Marina Afonina, founder and creative director

Camilla and Marc “Dumas” dress and “Olga” top


“The Resort collection looks to what’s next – the future – through the lens of women who have been pivotal throughout history.”

-Camilla and Marc, co-founders

Lee Mathews “Natalia” dress. Prince + Pauper “Beatrice” sandal.

“Our Resort 19 collection started with our love for natural textiles. It has a base of beautiful white linens and cottons punctuated with pops of bright primary-coloured silks.”

-Lee Mathews, creative director

“The collection has a Pre-Raphaelite and slightly Grey Gardens feel about it. It’s romantic and delicate but still very youthful and spirited with an underlying sophistication.”
– Beth and Tessa Macgraw, co-founders and designers
