My Favorite Runway Looks From Australian Fashion Week

Australia Fashion Week really brought a lot of life to summer fashion - not only with the street style, but with runway looks as well. Although some of the designers were a little left (at least on my fashion odometer), I think each designer brought something unique to the weeks festivities. Some of my favorite looks came from designers such as Ginger & Smart (who designed the hat in the photo above...which is life), Kitx, Karla Spectic, Bianca Spender and Di$count Universe. One thing each of these designers had in common - and the reason I liked their shows - was the fact that they had a fresh take on current trends.

Additionally, I usually don't like super grungy looks like the ones displayed by Di$count Universe. However, the ladies did an amazing job of softening the looks, making them more "ready-to-wear".
