Burnett lane Fashion showcase

Brisbane council has opened their fashion heart and held a Fashion Show in Burnett lane. Showing 16 excellent Brisbane fashion designers and some of QUT’s fashion students. The theme of the show, I would say was creative and colourful. With flowing dresses, casual clothing, evening wear and swimwear. Many of the designers went for summer dresses with flowing, wide brimmed skirts, which seems to have kicked slim dresses out of the picture at the moment. Leopard print which was featured on a swimsuit and a dress giving a sexy, tribal look. Bangles and necklaces with your swimwear, it gives the party look and it’s not only for celebrities and models. Even frills are looking hot at the moment making a dress look rich and worthy of ones praise. So much time would have been put into the clothing, this makes it more appreciable to wear. It’s not annoying either the fabrics are usually soft a light. It won’t make you look like a stuffed bird.
After long consideration of my most favourite designer, it was hard but George Wu’s dresses were so mouth-watering I am now craving them all! They are so beautiful and glamorous with a little extra something that stands out. George Wu is a Brisbane based designer focussing on mostly couture and day wear.

The couture was really quite subtle, but pretty. Dresses weren’t oversized and almost hitting people in the face on the sides of the catwalk. They looked just right for a fancy party, not too simple, not too extravagant.
What is too crazy to wear though?

Lady Gaga has struck the world with her shocking fashion. Now with all her fans dressing like her, it has become a trend. We see more shoulder pads and short shorts in fashion stores. Crazy just gets more normal and after a while we get used to it and don’t even notice. The world wants crazy, just imagine if we didn’t have Justin Beiber flying over fans at his concerts on a giant love heart, there would be no rush of excitement. This is what makes out world interesting. As things get crazier the world will mould with it.

Sorry for the poor quality of some of the pictures

because all boys dress like this… not!
Don’t agree with that hat, too big.
Next three George Wu dresses

longest catwalk
Longest catwalk I’ve ever seen. (out of three)


Maybe its my photography or are others feeling my pain?
I ask photographers or anyone who has been to a fashion show, who agrees that when models get to the end of the catwalk their turn is extremely fast?
I mean too fast to get a proper picture of the outfit?

Please tell me your thoughts (:

comments ???


  1. You should be photographing them mid stride as they walk the runway.

    Check out the way does it :)

  2. the timing is nearly impossible without a great camera. i don't have the timing down yet. i just put it on the fastest setting and snap as much as possible and hope for the best.
