This year at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, “The Innovators: Fashion Design Studio” displayed the works of seven graduate students in a show that definitely gave us a reason to have confidence in the future of the Australian fashion industry. This year, the show featured Amelia Akle, Ann Xiao, Casea, Johanna Smith and Richard Giang, Handsy Swimwear and EWOL. All photos by Jess Brohier.
The Fashion Design Studio (FDS) is recognised as a leading fashion design education Institute in Australia.
Under invitation by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, FDS has continuously presented the new guard of creative fashion designers since 1999 on the official schedule, and this year the invitation continued with seven of their best graduates showcasing their collections on the runway.
