Opening with a performance by The Australian Ballet and Australia’s very own Gemma Ward, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia launched in Sydney last night. 

Renowned Perth Designer Kym Ellery launched the momentous event honouring the 20th annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Models lined the catwalk in a range of deep tones, electric blues, crisp whites and a little bit of sparkle. 

Apart from a minor kerfuffle with an angry neighbour (who brought his noise complaint onto the runway), the show was a sheer display of Australian talent, closing with Katy Perry’s hit Firework and a shower of silver confetti.

Stay tuned, Ellery has set the bar high.
