Unsurprisingly, menswear was a bit of a rarity on the runway for MFBWA - even rarer was a collection solely dedicated to menswear.
Paul Scott bucked the trend.
It’s pretty understandable the lack of menswear as I am assuming it is more difficult to sell “out there” designs compared to women's fashion. I think Paul Scott was successful in creating a wearable collection that appeals to the fashion forward male as well as those who are bit more casual about fashion and of course, the market of girlfriends who shop for their boyfriend.
Paul Scott was part of The Innovators 2013 a hybrid show featuring the super six designers from TAFE's Fashion Design Studio.
We were first introduced to Paul Scott as part of Australian Graduates Fashion Week which included fellow Innovators including Leroy Nguyen and Elissa McGowan. It felt like his debut at MFBWA was a reincarnation of his graduate collection with some of the same pieces. For those already familiar with his work, this collection lacks the element of surprise however, for his MFBWA debut you might as well bring your A-game (even if I have seen it before).
The collection is filled with dark colours, mixed prints and a bit of half and half action going on especially with pants…
