Thomas Puttick’s Return to MBFWA 2018 Was Lacklustre and Uninspiring

Sydney label Thomas Puttick returned to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia this year with his Resort 2019 collection and whilst many people at Fashion Week have been raving about the show, we just did not see that 'wow' factor. Anyone care to explain what we're not seeing? Featured photo by Khiera Nicole.

Thomas Puttick is a luxury womenswear label from Sydney driven by a vision to create a more positive world of fashion.

His Resort 2019 collection at this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia runway show, however, makes us question how he plans on doing that.

Getting straight to the point: We didn’t like it. Overall, it was kind of basic, for lack of a better word.

The only great thing about the show was that Puttick chose to feature real women wearing his designs, alongside the booked models we saw at every other show. He went even further with that by having a handful of women from the audience walking up onto the runway during the final walk-through which was very Kayne West‘s Yeezy Season at NYFW (Google it.) with everyone lining up and standing there at the end.

It was an unexpected surprise, but unfortunately, it did nothing for the designs on show.

We spotted Sydney singer-songwriter Sarsha Simone and artist Dina Broadhurst walking out and strutting their stuff though. Werk it, ladies!

But as for the collection itself?

There was a slew of fluid, silk pieces dominating Puttick‘s Resort 2019 collection, with a couple of delicate, printed designs here and there to break it up, but nothing that made us want to take a second look.

Honestly, we are still scratching our heads wondering why everyone is still raving about it!

Are we being too harsh? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
