RAFW SS08 – Fleur Wood

Covering Australian Fashion Week for two different blogs is starting to buuuuug me. It really can be fashion week over kill and all the designer pieces and collections are blurring into one pretty and dress filled show. I’ve tried not to cross over coverage, but sometimes you love the pretty dresses so much you have to blog twice about them.

Take Fleur Wood for instance, it was so modern Jane Austen novel-like that you really must watch this video.

And instead of me saying the same thing I said on CQ, I should just quote myself. Gosh that just sounds weird.

Ultra pretty, girlie, and we loved it. In her spring summer 2008 collection, Fleur Wood presented a great collection that played up to her signature floral/pastel prints, lace panels and trimmings. Themed ‘Sunday afternoon’, there was lots of lace, tulle, cotton and mute beige colours. The muted colours were broken up with bright bursts of canary yellow dresses that seemed to float around the legs in a yellow cloud. It all had a very contemporary Jane Austen novel feel to the collection, though Wood did add some tailored pieces in the form of a white linen blazer which was pintucked and pleated at the waist. This was a beautiful collection any Fleur Wood fan would love.
