Summer is a time to play with color, and Arnsdorf designer Jade Sarita Arnott proved her eye for bright hues in a relaxed, tailored collection that mixed crisp whites with mint and shocking pink accents. Eye-popping accessories, such an camel and cobalt envelope clutches and candy-colored flats made for enviably effortless looks that we can't wait to try out.

Forget run-of-the-mill, skin-baring dresses for your summer soirees—Dion Lee's collection was chock-full of architectural dresses that were intriguing yet eminently wearable. Lee's talent for construction was showcased in sharp lines and intricate, elongated pleats that left us starry-eyed.

Romance Was Born can be counted on to produce the most OTT collection of Sydney Fashion Week, and this year was no exception. Inspired by the Neverending Story, designers Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett sent out wildly imaginative clothes that had our hearts racing. Sporting prints of costume jewelery and city skylines, Romance Was Born reminded us how fun it is to dress a little bit wacky come warmer months.
