And despite fashion week starting on a rainy note, Carla’s crowd of loyal followers flocked to Carriageworks in the wet to attend the show of a woman whose work is incomparable on the Australian fashion field.
Down the runway came bravely cut textured pieces, flowing silks and steamlined shapes among a fierce colour palette of red, blue and green.
Fur vests and innovative headdresses amid monochrome bodycons and intricate gowns were a daring move for the designer, but the sighs coming from an appreciative audience during the show proved the lady can do no wrong.
The line screamed Carla with a twist, with signature cut pants featuring a new flare.
The highlight of the show was when model Rachel Rutt strutted down the runway in snugly fitting lace pants.
