Freemasons Hall was home to a truly one of a kind presentation this season - Haluminous AW17. One not to be missed, this collection shows that just like life, clothing can be full of distress.

Haluminous is a Sydney based womenswear brand founded in 2016 by designer Hannah Kim. She has a reputation for creating highly embellished garments in youthful silhouettes, with a stand out SS17 collection already in tact.

For this collection the presentation started with a focus on just one model. In the middle of the room, surrounded by a circle of white lilies and candles, the model slowly bended and twisted her body, as eery music played in the background.

After a few moments you were completely transfixed, almost missing the models stumbling out. A real contrast from the norm at fashion week they shuffled around the circle, wearing garments made up of vibrant red and black hues. Shorts, socks, sliders, hoodies and dresses were all layered on top of each other creating unstructured silhouettes, complementing the feel of the presentation.

Whether the designs were finished with embroidery, embellishment or ruffles, each piece was unique, much like the collection in it’s entirety.
