RAFW 2011 - Fernando Frisoni

Showing off-site for the first time and with the Opera house as a back drop for his show entitled Zora, Fernando Frisoni presented a sharply tailored collection paired with his usual minimalistic style at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011-12. Models were fresh faced with barely there make-up which highlighted the simple aesthetic of the black, white and gold pieces shown.

Sharp tailoring has been a key trend at RAFW this year with many designers including jackets and suits in their range. However Frisoni stands out with his ability to vary shapes: he moved from a black and gold body con dress to fuller skirts and loose and flowing pants and tops which gave the collection a more relaxed and sporty feel and an added ability to take pieces from day to night. Frisoni also included some 60’s inspired shift dresses and longer dresses were edged with delicate fringing, channelling 1920’s flapper chic, perfect for evening wear.

Overall, the show packed a punch, with its combination of sleek and refined tailoring and finishing with the Jaws soundtrack.

A collection for the elegant modern women.
