The most anticipated event in the Australian fashion calendar has finally arrived, and though the weather has taken a turn towards the dark and dreary for a second year running, the street style looks are telling a different story.
The local fashion set descended on Carriageworks for Afterpay Australian Fashion Week bright and early on Monday morning to see what’s in store for the upcoming designer collections. But while we're keeping our eyes peeled for the latest looks on the runways, we’re not ashamed to admit that we find the street style to be just as alluring.
Last year’s street style saw a turn towards a more individualistic sense of style, with playful mix-ups of designer and thrifted streetwear, sports luxe and retro formalwear, all capped off with bold accessories. This year, the event is featuring more emerging Aussie designers than ever before, resulting in street style looks that are fresh and dynamic, with self-expression at their core. And after five days of scouring Carriageworks for the best street style looks, we're certainly not lacking for outfit inspiration.
Ahead, a look at our favourite street style moments from Afterpay Australian Fashion Week.
