Seems that Stephanie Conley can do no wrong, after breaking up her one time designer partner Stephanie Cranford on their Stephanie label, Conley has produced a few collections of very pretty dresses. Her solo Rosemount Australian Fashion Week runway debut featured 1950s inspired A-line dresses in vintage print with something for every occasion. From adorable cotton sundresses with puff or bell sleeves, to fitted satin cocktail dresses in buttercup yellow complete with a belted waist. Conley’s designs are very wearable and fast becoming a fashion favourite, I especially loved the sweet bows adorning the model’s heads.
But like the other shows this week, the hemline was short, thankfully not micro mini short. See the show video below the fold.
Oh did I mention Conley is engaged to fashion photographer Ben Watts, brother of the pregnant Naomi Watts? I’m sure these connections will serve her well for overseas ambitions.
