Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011 – Fernando Frisoni

May 13th, 2011

Fernando Frisoni showed his Summer 2011 womenswear collection entitled ʻZoraʻ offsite at the point of the Sydney Opera House during Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. The clouds disappeared and the sun shined over the beautiful harbour. Everyone has the opportunity to sit front row, with the maze-like catwalk running up and down the length of the marquee.

The Brazilian born designerʼs fourth womenswear collection sees Frisoni go back to his roots and truly realize his brand DNA. Inspired by the 1920ʼs, a decade of a modern era in fashion, a decade in which women first liberated themselves from constricting fashions and began to wear more relaxed shapes and embrace androgyny. Also drawn in by the minimalism of 1960′s op art sees Frisoniʼs summer collection take on a palate of mainly black and white.

The luxury silk-blend mesh and textured linens in modern blends took to the stage, impressing the audience. Silhouettes are loose and to be worn with ease and confidence. A boyish pair of board shorts made in the finest luxury silk crepe, crisp white cotton shirting complete with capes and tails, and beautiful textured silk low crutch pants. The silk fringes transport the 1920ʼs into a todayʼs ultramodern shapes.

The collection reflects two sides; the black and the white; the naughty (the flapper) and the well behaved (the aristocrat). Androgynous, sexy, timeless and chic. ʻZoraʼ is the perfect balance of the 60ʼs and 20ʼs, showcasing shapes which reflect a futurist existence, the Fernando Frisoni woman is sophisticated but simple, sheʼs modern, original and powerful.

His Summer 11 collection brings with it personality, attitude and glamour where nothing is compulsory and individuality is everything ʻZoraʼ. A simple collection. A divine location. A fabulous affair. Well done Fernando.
