Shakuhachi - Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, 2011

The Shakuhachi show at this year's Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (held at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Sydney) was nothing short of stunning.

The design inspiration was “Block Party”, inspired by the glamorous jetsetters of the late 1960s and 1970s, from Talitha Getty in Marrakesh to a young Brigette Bardot in San Tropez. The show even featured iconic poolside Hollywood images taken by the late Slim Aaron.

And it produced a seemingly endless array of looks, each one as sensational - and wearable - as the next.

The first looks included a lovely peach silk number, followed by dreamy, flowy pieces, and then punchy, bright colour-block outfits. Bright turquoise, pink and yellow was spliced with black, white, and nude, and embellished numbers in silver and pewter rounded out the collection, adding an injection of glamour.

With accessories including the signature perspex and white strap wedges, sandals and ankle boots (lucky front-rowers were gifted a cuff using the same materials - I cannot wait to wear mine!), adding polish to a cohesive collection, it's little wonder the brand's parade was very much lauded amongst the fash-pack.

Hair sported by the models was immaculate - courtesy of the newest kid on the hair tool block, Cloud Nine.

Says the Shakuhachi design team: “Hair and makeup we feel is imperative for the show to enhance the look of the collection just like it is in any woman’s everyday life, we were wanting a really clean low pony tail which was over the ear and textured.”

The acheive the right hair look, the Cloud Nine Wide iron was set on low heat, which created a really natural bend through the hair to project a matt, raw and fluffy textured finish.

We like it very much.
