Hats off to Lisa Ho – Australia’s only designer to manage to show an entire range of summer clothing with no visible breasts, plunging-to-the-navel necklines or bikini bottoms/buttock cheeks masquerading as pants. Not to sound jaded-chic or anything, but real-life clothing can be a rare sight on the Sydney catwalks. Ho’s show this morning, held at the spectacular Art Gallery of New South Wales, was a fantastic, tightly edited collection of mannish suits, cool dresses and colour blocked skirt, top and pants separates. Paced superbly, with at least eight girls on the 60 metre-long runway at a time, it was over as quickly as it began. There’s something to be said for a designer who knows how to leave people wanting more. Best show of the week thus far.
I LIKE YOU!
