MAFW Day 1

Town Hall, 9.00am
Who else but Lisa Ho would be the perfect candidate to start off the week? Lisa Ho is a designer we've covered before, and in these circumstances, she needs very little introduction. She's been in the field for over 22 years, and is one of the leading designers in Australia. Along with the exclusive arrangement at the department store David Jones, her clothes are available at retailers worldwide. Ho's most recent collections have been a breathtaking range of romantic vintage textiles, all delicately put together. The show that she's just presented indicates that we'll carry on admiring her work. Held off site in Sydney's old Town Hall building, it was the prefect place for the show. A mysteriously lit main hall with live songbirds singing, and plunging green plants hanging off the ceiling, it appears they must have thought through the ultimate location for this show very carefully. The models came strolling down on a tiger patterned catwalk. Pure, shiny silk was the most commonly seen material in the dresses. Lisa has worked with exotic prints, to achieve an exclusive east-meets-west look. We loved the beautiful, tightly-fastened, round-the-waist woven leather belts. The models wore high, strappy sandals to show off their super bronzed legs, and big, big hair was on the agenda. "The nicest collection Lisa has ever delivered" was how our neighbour rated the show.
