Ignite the Flame
I am so incredible thrilled to see the eagerly anticipated AW 12 collection, 'Flame', from celebrated Sydney designer Elliot Ward-Fear. The above images are just a selection from the striking lookbook, featuring New Zealand talent Liv O'Driscoll and the creative genius of photographer Thom Kerr and stylist Cassandra Scott-Finn. The images form arguably the most impressive lookbook to be released in Australia for the season, not surprising considering the stellar calibre of the team which produced it.
As for the clothes, the lush fabrication, impeccable tailoring and unique silhouettes are what sets Elliot's work apart from the rest in my personal opinion. The jacket/dress in the first shot is my pick from the collection, however the intricately structured mini dresses and latex under garments hold enormous potential for styling inspiration. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this talented young designer.
