Raffles Graduate Fashion Show 2015

2015 Raffles Fashion Design Graduate Show at CarriageworksHappy Sunday, everyone! Before I started writing today’s post, I did a quick look back of my blog to read my post on last year’s Raffles Graduate Fashion Show.  I realised I’ve promised myself to update my blog in a more timely manner, which was a promise I didn’t keep, not until recently. I have skipped the whole Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia this year but this is not going to happen again with this year’s Raffles Graduate Fashion Show. So without further ado, here are some of my favourite looks from the show.

The show was held at Carriageworks this year. And before we move on to the meat of the show, I’d like to take you to the backstage to see where all the magic began.

Braids are so popular on runways in these couple seasons, and they also took on the Raffles show this year. I just wish I could do braids like that myself!

For the makeup, it was all about that pop from the eyes. A barely-there dewy finish on the face with some striking eyelines, and you got some runway-ready models!

And for the boys? A natural, fresh-looking face was all they need.

Ok, moving back to the show… Raffles never seizes to surprise me with its students’ immense talent. They have done it in last year’s graduate fashion show, they have done it in MBFWA earlier this year, and they have done it again in this year’s graduate fashion show. The theme of the show this time was `FLUX’, and Raffles graduates have showcased some serious creativity to embrace the theme.

Syfia Annity shows us monochrome can make a real statement when it’s done right. The cape shape long dress will guarantee a grand entrance on the red carpet, and the layered maxi skirt look is understated yet snap-worthy.

These two pieces from Melissa The are perfect for this party season.

Chad Nguyen‘s collection is definitely one of my favourites of the night. The voluminous silhouettes are simply fun and chic.

It’s blue, it has a built-in cape, and it has intricate details. I am sold, Jessica Wanny.

Lenka Klikacova‘s collection is sleek and feminine. Oh, and that white gown can easily be styled as a wedding dress for any sexy and sassy bride out there.

Love the movement of this pleated number by Kobe Kan.

When a collection inspired by the stories of refugees meets with intense handiwork by the designer (think hand-felted and self-dyed fabrics), it just gives you chills. You go girl, Iva Pfeiffer!

Wilson Nguyen‘s menswear collection showcases a perfect blend of Western and Asian elements in the most subtle yet edgy way. And can you believe this guy designed some of the shoes for his pieces and hired Lady Gaga’s shoemaker to custom made them for him? Talk about the dedication!

Grace Choi‘s choice of bold prints are just spot on. And have I mentioned that dramatic green piece in my first picture of this post was also one of hers?

Who else feels like shopping in the men’s department after seeing these two looks from Alyssa Rischka? Those colours and fringing details just stole my heart!

You can never get enough cute jumpsuits, and the colour of this one from Rhenny Valleria is so pretty!

A cute LWD is as good as a LBD, and this one from Lauren Farrar-Pugh simply nailed it.

Diva, goddess… whatever you want to call it. I just love love love these stunning pieces from Edwin Limanto!

This fairy-esque one shoulder dress from Gina Nguyen is EVERYTHING! And how beautiful is that sheer watercolour fabric!

Rebecca Deasy‘s designs are edgy and futuristic with tons of interesting details.
