RAFW Runway Report: Hussy Spring/Summer 2010
Planning on attending a party marathon this summer and don’t know what to wear? Well, Hussy has got it sorted. With satin, vibrant colours, one-shouldered looks and sequins galore, Hussy was a fabulous parade of beachy looks for the young and young at heart.
The show opened with a billowing white dress feathering out as the model strutted gracefully down the runway. Paired with a slicked back do, it appeared as though the glamazon had just left a nice dip in the water. Smokey, dark eye makeup completed the super sexy look.
Nobody would ever accuse Hussy of being outlandish or ‘too edgy’ for it is plain to see that the label is a brand that aims to find common ground with fun-loving Aussie gals who soak up some rays during the day and cocktails at night. Certainly, the collection had a plethora of evening and daywear for this crowd featuring a vast array of dresses with loose fits. They were garments you could easily pull on as you dashed out of your beach-side bungalow after a quick shower to head over to a fab shindig.
Sandy, dusky colours were abundant but spruced up with nice metallic or sequin embellishments to create a glam effect. I particularly liked the gold studded belts featured in several ensembles. While simple, they added a little bit of rock glam to the Malibu disposition of the garments.
While not exactly suited to my usual aesthetic, I did like the cute black zip-up dress with almost arbitrary grey detailing and the green one-shouldered number. The latter had an interesting sleeve where it was strung to the main dress.
Judging by the excited, gleeful faces, it seems that Hussy fulfilled its objective in satisfying its hot young clientele. These gals will have no problem in knowing where to shop this summer.
