Fashion Avenue 2012, Adelaide

In a sea of trustworthy designs focused on high profit margins and fast production turnaround, the truly inspired artists stand out. So it's easy to see why of the interstate designers brought to Fashion Avenue 2012, Camilla was a clear highlight. Her firework of a collection added Sydney sheen to a Brazilian flamboyance, mixing boomerang necklaces with bright feathers and prints. You didn't know where to start looking, not because everything was wrong, but because it was so perfect.

Joining Camilla on the print path were Lisa Ho and Gorman, with fun but wearable pieces currently available in stores. Meanwhile Alannah Hill and Alex Perry, who can usually be trusted for beautiful - albeit frou frou - frocks, seemed to dampen their ranges for the Adelaide market. Lucette, Joveeba and Tigerlily didn't break any ground, although Tigerlily included some high-waisted bikinis I couldn't help but appreciate. (I've previously declared my love for the navel hiders.)
