The Australian designer Bianca Spender, daughter of the influential fashion designer Carla Zampatti, showed her Resort 2018 Collection during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Australia. Unlike last year’s resort collection, this time Bianca chose to make the collection more feminine.
The designer showed a unique line that radiated with ease and beauty. For her designs, she chose mostly bright and pastel colors that made the clothes even more amazing. Bright lilac, gray, baby pink, petrol blue and gold were just a part of the palette that Bianca implemented in her line this year. Although everyone is used to her creations with rough silhouettes, this time she showed her soft and sensual side.
The show started with an astonishing lilac pastel trench coat paired with pants that were reminiscent of the early ‘90s. She showed asymmetry in many of the pieces. The real reason for this was her arm injury from four weeks ago, which she took as a sign. The designer had to wear a sling, and found the perfect way to transfer this situation in her drawings and transformed it in asymmetrical sleeves.
“Any normal sleeve would look wrong (on that arm), I’d have to scrunch it up. So there are lots of loose sleeves or they’re turned forward or a bit distorted,” she said.
The trench coats and jackets are perfectly tailored, and most of them nipped at the waist. The mini and midi dresses present in emerald, dark blue, bold orange, cobalt, and rose are perfect for any possible occasion. The models looked effortlessly chic and modern while they flaunted Bianca’s line on the runway. A long white dress in Ancient Greek style left everyone in awe while the multi-colored fabrics with gentle tones gave the whole line an even more sensitive and romantic note.
Spender’s main intention was to create clothing for modern working women. She wanted women to be able to wear her pieces everywhere they go. She ended up making a simple line that emits a lot of self-assurance.
“I had this moment where I was thinking about what is ‘show clothing’ and then ‘real clothing’ and I thought ‘I have to find a way that everything feels elevated enough that it can walk down a catwalk and kind of compelling and real enough that you can imagine yourself walking down the street wearing it,” Bianca stated after her successful show.
