rock me like the '80s

Emma Mulholland made her debut as a fashion
designer two years ago as one of four TAFE students
(the Technical And Further Education Commission  
of New South Wales) chosen to present a range 
at the Australian fashion week.

Emma made her solo debut at MBFWA, the Mercedes
Benz Fashion Week Australia last April showcasing
her s/s 2013-14 ”Spring Break” collection suggesting
a trip down memory lane with looks that instantly bring
back the 1980s through a cheerful ”surf chic” aesthetic
with the typical trans-seasonal spirit of Down Under
fashion subtly featuring the shift from winter into spring.

Bomber jackets with Arctic-inspired prints with penguins
and whales and a polar bear wearing sunglasses are
mellowly paired with summery outfits in clashing colors
and chirpy prints with techno pop references, see-through
inserts and paillettes of different size and shape.

The whole collection is stunningly accessorized and
it represents a gorgeous collaboration between Aussie
talents: Emma worked with jewelry designer Ryan Storer
(known for his bedazzling Swarovski encrusted ear cuffs)
who created silver spike earrings while star-shaped Perspex
pieces and neon colored rubber neckbands were specially
designed for her by Isobel Badin. The teamwork became
even more groovy in a Style Me Romy's issue involving
photographer Zachary Handley and hair pundit Alan White
for ghd who realized mind-blowing spray-painted extensions
contributing to make Emma's statement debut.
