Another Australian fashion week has passed, and we are all left wondering how we can incorporate these stunning new styles into our life now. Pre-COVID we may have had a packed calendar with a string of opportunities to show off these upcoming trends, but in today’s changing world we need to be clever with how we will fit them in. To get ahead of the trends, here is how to start wearing the future of fashion now.


After the year we have just had, wrapping everything in a pretty bow is just what we need. We saw it from Jordan Dalah, Thomas Anderson (TAFE NSW Innovators), Rebecca Vallance, and Macgraw. If you feel this trend could be a little girly for you, start slow, try it on a slide, a soft inconspicuous bow on a garment, or go all out with a statement bow as you sashay down the aisle.
