Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011 – Rachel Gilbert

May 11th, 2011

As you may know, I absolute adore Rachel Gilbert. Gracious style, edgy and modern design, with intricate detailing. This woman know exactly what the fashionable women of today want and need.

Rachel Gilbert launched her Cruise Collection 11/12 “Binding measures” to a crowded room of industry elite, fashionistas and celebrities including Kate Waterhouse, Erika Heynatz, Marvin Priest, Singer Prinnie, Laura Csortan, Emma Freedman and April Rose Pengilly to name but a few.

The vibe was powerful and confident as Rachel Gilbert presented a collection revealing her signature style and also the brand new and highly anticipated Ready to Wear collection, all inspired by the female body form.

Staying true to the brand, luxurious fabrics and embellished hand beaded red carpet designs, Rachel Gilbert recreated the infamous evening gowns and transformed them into a dramatic and feminine form fitting elegance. Dripping in over a million dollars worth of Jan logan diamonds, each gown celebrated a fresh sorbet palette of crisp whites, citrus limes and apricot accents, balanced with neutral nude undertones.

The collection reinvents a new style for sexy with hemlines lengthening and necklines rising. The combination of structured paneling, sequins and silks juxtaposed against each other to create a unique feminine silhouette. While the Ready To Wear shows a strength through defined trimmings and structure combined with hardware, spikes and open zip detailing.

We were all taken on an urban and whimsical dream with the collaboration of Violinist Jane Cho and DJ Simon Pongrass, inventing a unique fusion between classical and hip-hop music. The soundtrack highlighted the distinct contrast between the bold and feminine designs.

Rachel Gilbert demonstrated why her garments are so highly sought after with lavish and embellished designs that have the ability to take you from black tie to brunch chic. Setting a prominent tone for the season, “Binding Measures” focuses on powerful and confident women

…and that’s why we all love her.
