The Importance of Closing Things With A Bang

And Fashion Week Australia had a little help with that from Oscar de la Renta.
|

When you have a crowd that is heavy with Fashion Week Fatigue (FWF), the last thing you want to do is let all that excitement that’s been built up over the week fizzle away. It’s just downright anti-climatic. Give your audience that last kick, that last shot of Gatorade before they cross the finish line and sleep forever. For Fashion Week Australia, that shot came from Oscar de la Renta, the final show on the roster. It’s a very fitting finish, considering that the week started too with plenty of drama in the form of Toni Maticevski. (Side note: Oscar de la Renta also closed Singapore Fashion Week two years ago. If you ever need a dramatic close to anything, call them.)

Contrary to the other designers, creative director Peter Copping chose to show the American label’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection. The Resort 2017 one, released just a day before, was kept for New York. The different season didn’t seem to matter to the Aussie crowd though as the show still packed a full and excited house. This is Oscar de la Renta, after all. Copping wasn’t in Sydney to take his bow, but the big dresses definitely helped in filling the Copping-shaped void. Beaded, lace, see-through, form-fitting, layers and layers of tulle and even a wedding dress with two adorable flower girls, the team pulled out all the stops.
