CARDIF Collective Fashion Alley Runway Report



Last night we attended the CARDIF Collective Fashion Alley event, an event which brought together a runway show featuring Canberra designers, a silent auction raising money for charity and an art show.

If you missed out, here’s what went down.




This childrenswear label designed by Hanna Hoyne uses upcycled materials to create clothes with bold silhouettes and unexpected details. Flashes of metallics, plenty of pleating, and patchworked denim all made an appearence.




Designer Sara Wurcker presented her latest Hunter collection which featured thoughtfully tailored pieces. Sweeping midi skirts, cami’s, dresses with trailing straps, cropped trousers and A-line skirts artfully mix and matched together hinting at a perfect capsule wardrobe.


Thunder Thighs


This new label made its debut on the CARDIF runway showcasing pieces with an emphasis on inclusion. Pants, skirts and dresses are all designed to accommodate a variety of shapes and sizes, particularly those with large thighs. Clever tailoring and subtle details elevated this collection presented with a steam punk influence.
