2. Sheer


If one trend almost eclipsed neutral tones on the catwalk, it was Sheer. Designers explored everything from subtle layering to abstract nudity, favouring chiffon and see-though fabrics in blacks and whites... with a few rare splashes of colour thanks to Fernando Frisoni and Dhini.

3. Girlie Pastels


Set for the Spring/Summer season, is a return to soft and frilly pastel pieces, from the likes of Miss Unkon, Annah Stretton and Nookie. Kate Sylvester presented a super cute and quirky boy-meets-girl runway show, accented with oversized white bows. Romantic pinks, whites and blues skipped down the runway at RAFW, with a touch of sexy flirtation to match.

 4. Bold Prints


Despite the wash of pastels, and sheers in neutral beiges, whites and blacks..Some designers mixed it up with bold prints! From mottled florals at Zimmerman, to pink geometrics at Fernando Frisoni and quirky patterns at Alice McCall. Romance Was Born took neon prints to a whole different level, possibly assaulting the the eyes of the more feeble..  Turn heads and make a bold bright statement for the Spring-Summer 2010/11 Season.
