Runway Report:Stolen Girlfriends Club Autumn/Winter 2010

SGC Runway - Alex Jiang - 20A cold and rainy evening brings us the Stolen Girlfriends Club show held offsite in what first thoughts appeared to be a run down RSA! A start time of 8pm saw first the bar area packed out and then after an opportunity to catch up with familiar faces, a traipse through the building to the catwalk room.

Stolen Girlfriends obviously like to do things a little differently with the exhibition space split over two rooms! Joined by corridor, this has to be a first in terms of show design with the special seated folk in one area and the generals in another. It took a while for the show to kick off, however we all knew it would definitely be worth the wait, and it absolutely was!

A unique and extraordinary display of brilliance, the Stolen Girlfriends crew have really developed over the past year and taken their latest offering to a brand new level.

SGC Runway - Alex Jiang - 37Entitled “Welcome to Nowhere” the collection showed us deliciously soft and romantic ruffles, delicate knit dresses, fabulous jumpsuits and of course a continuum of Stolen Girlfriends legendary leggings.

SGC Runway - Alex Jiang - 40Blazers of the oversized and fitted persuasion were a key focus for the menswear as were the eclectically clever twine suspenders. Military style epaulets and fringing detail is added to the blazers with thinly fitting jeans and shorts to complement the styles. A high waist short for women has returned for the next season too, cut classically for a totally flattering look.

SGC Runway - Alex Jiang - 25I need to make mention of the beautiful shirting for both sexes. Formally buttoned right up to the neck, floral prints as well as classic whites are evident. Dresses for the women were truly breathtaking, showing from my somewhat blocked viewpoint, fabrics from cotton, chiffon and velvet. Detail was a prominent inclusion for this collection with panelling, lace and zip features.

I had high hopes for Stolen Girlfriends and as expected they did not disappoint.
