For the record, the motto of Melbourne label Di$count Univer$e is “do what you want”.
And that should really be everyone’s motto in life, but when it came to Di$count Univer$e‘s Resort Collection for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia this year, they did not give a F$*&!
Di$count Univer$e pushed boundaries, threw out the rulebook and pretty much disrupted the industry with every look that came down the runway.
There were obvious influences of punk, fetish, glam rock and camp influences throughout the collection.
Slogans with everything from “sin is in” to “sex is in” donned cherry-coloured, spandex jumpsuits and denim. There was also a tribe of impeccably dressed drag queens in the audience. Naturally, darling.
I don’t what else to say about the collection, really. I think the pictures will speak for themselves.
