AGFW Winner: Emily Scott


The Australian Graduates Fashion Week fashion shows were held on Saturday (24 November 2011), which consisted of over 30 graduate fashion designers having their work strutting down the runway vying for  to be the winner.

So to start of my extensive coverage, I thought I would start off with the best as determined by the judges - Nicola Finetti, Paolo Sebastian, Phoenix Keating, Peter Coulson (Photographer), Dimitri Frost (Cielo Magazine), and Elvis Di Fazio.

The winner was Emily Scott from New Zealand and graduate from Otago Polytechnic.

This collection in 3 words: Bold, Unconventional, Butterfly

I have never witnessed a collection this unconventional from the clashing colour palette, to the shape and barely any skin showing, yet it somehow works which obviously explains why she won! When seeing this down the runway, it visually reminded me of the fashionable caterpillar strutting down the runway and turning into a butterfly.

So without further ado, here is the winning collection!
