Opening night at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia with Kym Ellery the first to send her collection down the runway. Set in the industrial carriageworks in Sydney's Eveleigh, it was clear all black and monochrome ensembles were the focus, with grey tones and lots of flares and bell sleeve tops dominating the collection. Long vests and layers will be the go-to this season as well as mixing textures and fabrics to create another dimension. Ellery, who launched her label 8 years ago continues to define Australian Fashion and has a cult following with celebrity devotees like Lady Gaga to Giselle and Madonna. Ellery was the only Australian to showcase her collection in Paris Fashion week recently and is only the third Australian to ever do so. This label will only strengthen and her designs and style are truly unique.
