Rosemount Australian Fashion Week’s 2011 New Generation Group embraced summer with a tropical cocktail of vibrant colours and playful prints throughout their Spring/Summer 2011 collections. It was enough to inspire anyone to dig out their bikini, slap on the fake tan and surf the web for sunny holiday deals.

Teena Zerefos aka Del Playa Drive’s S/S 2011 collection ‘Holiday Romance’ is vibrant and heavily features tribal inspired prints and beading. Key silhouettes include billowing maxi dresses, tees, beach dresses and kaftans made from silk and cotton. The opulent Spanish/Moroccan decor of the late Doris’ Dukes Hawaiian estate – the Shangri La- was the inspiration for Teena’s collection.

“I was so inspired and overwhelmed by the beauty of the building I based all my prints and upcoming range around Doris Duke and her home. This range is a reflection of an inspirational journey and evolved out of a love for my work and I feel the clothes really express that”.

Contrasting textures such as knit, embellishment and lace play a key role throughout Jaime Lee Major’s collection. Contrast is maximized with clashing bold primary colours such as red and blue, which are combined with black and gold and accessorized with dramatic, embellished glasses. Silhouettes include short gathered skirts, oversized blazers and fitted dresses with defined waists. Ruffles are also used throughout the collection in boleros and also on the hip of dresses to create further waist definition.

Mok Theorem’s S/S 2011 collection, Child in Time was inspired by the “metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly – this process is symbolic of a girl of youth and innocence transforming into a woman of grace, elegance and freedom”, whilst touching on connotations of “rebirth, celebration, beauty, grace, eloquence, lightness and freedom”. Key colours include mauve, lavender and lemon, classic neutrals and the occasional bright hue of orange and purple.
