L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2012: Camilla and Marc
Always focused on luxurious materials and clean tailoring, Australian brand Camilla and Marc never fails to deliver a modern collection. The brother and sister team, Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman, made their debut at Australian Fashion Week in 2003 and have continued to capture fashionistas’ attention on the runways. Camilla and Marc has grown from being one of Australia’s most exciting young labels into an international favorite.

Presented at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Camilla and Marc’s collection featured minidresses with attitudes ranging from flirty to sophisticated. While the palette remained simple with black and neutrals and hints of teal, the design duo played up textures and materials. Ruched pencil skirts that hit right above the knee were paired with sheer blouses. Dresses received the same technique but were contrasted with panels of tonal material. Loose, one-shoulder dresses in black and teal made for sweet all-occasion ensembles, perfect for the Camilla and Marc woman.

The brother and sister team stepped it up with sophisticated styles made for moments when one needs to impress. Structured with cap sleeves and cinched at the waist, the off-white ladylike number was the epitome of polished. Freeman-Topper and Freeman referenced the 1920s with drop-waist dresses complete with flouncy skirts. A neutral shade and sleeveless silhouette detailed with trim had potential to go from day to night while a black version with sheer sleeves was suitable for doll-up evenings. The show closed with a stunning ruched teal minidress. The sexy look boasted ruched panels as well as ruched sheer long sleeves. The subtle material contrast made for a striking characteristic.
The collection was quintessential Camilla and Marc, exactly what the brand stands for. The impeccable construction and exquisite material will have fans in a frenzy.
