     MBFWA 2012: Vogue's Top Five Trends

      We know it's getting chilly outside and it's still a while to go before Spring, but after our show at MBFWA we are getting pretty excited about the Miss Unkon pieces that will fill our wardrobes come summer. With Vogue reporting on the top 5 trends to watch for, you can pick up on both the Brights and sheer skirting trend with the new collection. Some pretty images shot by Vogue from our show below, to get you excited! 

From Romance Was Born’s Monday madness to Akira Isogowa’s Friday thrills, the week that was MBFWA 2012 took our breath away.

From the calibre of designers to the sheer number of international delegates strutting their stuff in the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge, the buzz surrounding this year’s MBFWA was nothing short of gripping. Looking back at the week that was, we review the top five trends that materialised on the 2012 runway.

1. Print on print
Undoubtedly the most prolific trend to emerge from the week’s considerable talent, clashing prints appeared to be breeding backstage, from the pyjama-style prints that opened the week at Romance Was Born, though to the clashing Asian-style patterns Akira showcased on Friday. Geometric and floral varieties electrified the collections of Sara Phillips, Zimmermann and Jenny Kee.

2. Brights
Cobalt blue and tangerine reigned supreme in the collections shown by Oroton, Gary Bigeni, Ode To No One and Suboo, just to name a few. From burnt orange and inky blue through to fluoro coral and saturated ultramarine, this duo of hues certainly made its presence felt in every shade imaginable. The brighter, the better.

3. Peplums
Feminine, fun and decidedly fashion, peplums were seen in spades. From the youthful bent they enjoyed at By Johnny and Alice McCall through to the formal inclination they took at Toni Maticevski and Lisa Ho, these waisted thrills are sure to prove a strong trickle trend for 2012/13.

4. Sheer skirting
Transparent fabrics took centre stage at Kirrily Johnston, Miss Unkon and Christopher Esber. Re-imagined in sheer skirted layers, they flanked strong prints and textures by providing a softer edge and more modest hemline to otherwise abridged lengths.

5. White out
Whole ensembles cut, tailored and styled in white proved show pieces at Manning Cartell, Magdalena Velevska, Bec & Bridge and Watson X Watson. From achromic suiting to shorts, dresses and shirts, whole bleached-out outfits left a decisively summery and fresh feel in their wake.
