This year’s coveted opening spot was filled by Sydney-based label, Albus Lumen. Designer Marina Afonina journeyed back through the brand’s archives for inspiration, reinventing and reconstructing past collections and archived pieces through an exciting new lens. The ‘Rebellion’ runway kicked off the week at Carriageworks to a thumping techno soundtrack to match the label’s youthful new energy. 

The opening show always generates an eager crowd, and this year was no exception. The collection was presented to 600 fashionable attendees, including Victoria Lee, Maddison Brown, Montana Cox, and Kyah Simon.
