WESTFIELD’S flagship Bondi Junction shopping centre was one of the off site venues for the Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival featuring swimwear collections Speedo, Swank and Seafolly.
There were three categories at the Westfield runway: race wear, street wear and swimwear.
Westfield’s John Batistich said the centreprovided a great environment to showcase key styles for the season.
“We hope to inspire our shoppers just as much as they inspire us,” he said.
He said the inclusion of the Bondi venue in the weeklong festival program was “a great thing for locals”.
“It brings clothing that’s in the stores to the runway so they can come in, watch the show and then go shopping straight afterwards,” he said.
Brunsdon said the local scene was “free-spirited, simplified and undone, but at the same time it’s definitely very trend-driven”.
“It might be a little bit too trendy because sometimes Sydney girls look like fashion victims,” he said.
