#460 Take a Hike Australians, Kate Sylvester has landed!

After a week of cocktail frocks, bulging breasts and see through skirts, it was an absolute pleasure to see some healthy hikers in Kate Sylvester’s latest womenswear collection. Highlights include the thigh high sequinned spats, the linen sacking and the custom painted Doc boots (done specially by Wayne Conway’s panel beater). And always good to see a Kiwi model trifecta – all three boys in the show were NZers – Vinnie P from 62, Bruce from August and Red from Red11. Myf Shepherd did an unplanned opening – according to Patty Huntington’s latest Tweet, Chic threatened to pull her from the show 40 minutes before starting unless she opened or closed. Dramas! (Full story here on Frockwriter.) You might remember I asked Sylvester on Sunday if there were any hidden firecrackers to follow up on last year’s medalgate fiasco, she answered a definitive no – I guess this one surprised everyone involved. Poor old Kate, I feel for you! But don’t worry, the show definitely spoke for itself.

    Is it just me or are the best elements of Kate Sylvester’s last few ranges all looking like style pages taken straight from the book of one Monique Saville, former Kate Sylvester PR? Sometimes I just feel like I’m looking at a model dressed up like Monique. Credit where credit is due?

    Crab Boy, you can see them!

    I don’t think they look anything like the way Monique dresses! The range that just when down the runway was very av not her best……..
