Lisa Ho To Close Doors

lisa ho hero

Upon hearing this devastating news a little while ago, I am still in shock that the pioneering designer, Lisa Ho, has announced the end to her label after 30+ years.

Ho’s label focused on a contemporary aesthetic, with her show regarded as a complete success during the recent Fashion Week, as well as Australian Fashion Week 2012. While this wasn’t enough to maintain sales profits, administrators of the brand are now concentrating on focusing on an orderly close of the store chains, expecting to be finalised by the end of June.

However, it is true when they say with every cloud comes a silver lining. With this particular cloud, comes a last time amazing sale from the Lisa Ho collections which have subsequently been reduced an incredible amount! Definitely go check it out here to snag a bargain on the final few items.

I’m sure that I am speaking for many when I say that this label will be missed.

Now that that’s out of the way…

Last month I was very kindly invited to attend the Spring/Summer 13/14 Fashion Palette runway show- where Australian designers, both a mixture of up and coming and established, showcase their newest collections.

Located at the Australian Technology Park, it was a warehouse very fabulously decked out (as you would expect). Drinks flowed, music played, generous gifts were received and great company was had!

We saw trends of Versace style prints, patchwork, graphic prints

And, of course, the amazing GALANNI delivered with their incredible collection; permeated by gold, eye catching accents and Grecian style beauty.

However, it was certainly the Niki Teljega Elizabethan style gown that was the wow item of the night. So gorgeous.
