Aurelio Costarella Spring 2010: sequins and furs

If there’s one thing the world has come to expect from Aurelio Costarella it’s show-stopping eveningwear. Did he deliver with his RAFW (Australian fashion week) show? You bet. If sparkling, ruffling, no-holds-barred glamour is your thing, then Costarella is your man.

For Spring 2010, some of his dresses were Gothed up with corset-style leather bodices. There were open backs and beaded cross-body sashes, and tiers of flower-like frills. The true standouts were sequinned paillette dresses paired with snug fur wraps, evoking the essence of vintage-meets-modern glamour; but then again, the intensely ruffled floor-length gowns were pretty well striking too. The show ended in a shower of silver confetti signalling another well-received presentation from one of Australia’s kings of the red-carpet gown.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
