Robyn Lawley's despair over Fashion Week

  Robyn Lawley's despair over Fashion Week Most brands at MBFWA will feature one body type in their shows: slim. Lawley puts it down to "laziness".And today the Sports Illustrated regular, originally from Girraween in west Sydney, is rejoicing thanks to Bras n Things' latest campaign honouring body confidence that she stars in alongside Samantha Harris, Bianca Cheah and Elle Ferguson.

Outside, Sydney was turning on a monsoon but inside the Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park on Sunday, Camilla and Marc made their own futuristic desert.

But first, we need to talk about the giant bags.

Forget Balenciaga's take on the blue IKEA bag, Camilla and Marc sent totes down the runway that were so big, it would take a year on Mars (that’s 1.88 Earth years, so you know) to find a lipstick in the bottom of those things.

And the models who didn’t have super-sized sacks had tiny little wristlet purses – so you can carry your keys and still have both hands free for a selfie.

What we should all be talking about is Teyana Taylor's many appearances throughout New York Fashion Week . The world first met Taylor in the days leading up to her '80s-themed 16th birthday on the truly legendary MTV show My Super Sweet 16.

And selfie they did. After the show, the set, which included 60 tonnes of sand and rock sculptures, turned into a giant photo set cum children’s playground, with plenty of tots in tow with their fashionable parents for the traditional Mother’s Day opening of Australia’s biggest industry fashion event.

Celebrating their 15th year, Camilla and Marc presented a collection that played to their strengths – checked suiting, exquisite fabrications and day-to-night dressing – while injecting the collection with some textural touches, including fringing, ribbons and jacquard.

As far as trends go, the collection all but confirms that green will continue to dominate the colour palette into summer, from moss green, military-inspired soft suiting, to a show-stopping dress with bell sleeves in a shimmering emerald.

Why You Should Never Put Your Passport in Your Carry-on

  Why You Should Never Put Your Passport in Your Carry-on Why You Should Never Put Your Passport in Your Carry-onThere's one major reason this method is a problem: On completely booked flights, airlines may try to expedite the boarding process by asking passengers to check their bags gateside. Some with larger suitcases may be forced to leave their bags at the gate to make space in the overhead compartments. Earlier this year in Europe, budget airline Ryanair introduced a new rule requiring those with basic fares to check their luggage at the gate.

Clever layering of shirts under dresses also stamped this collection firmly with a “transeasonal” seal, which is important as Camilla and Marc continue their aggressive expansion into the US market and brands seek to sell these pre-summer pieces as things to last. Fast fashion this is not.

In the show notes, the brand’s founders, brother and sister Camilla Freeman-Topper and Marc Freeman, said the collection explored themes of “light, reflection, boundlessness, strength and boldness”.

The opening show of the week included two international star exports from our region: New Zealand-born model Georgia Fowler, who has walked for Victoria’s Secret, and Charlee Fraser, who recently graced the cover of Vogue Australia’s diversity issue.

More than 600 people attended the show, including international buyers and media, and celebrities including actress Elsa Pataky, wife of Chris Hemsworth.

The shows continue on Monday morning with a group presentation of swimwear.
