Meet the next generation of Australian fashion week designers

If you were ever asked to pull together an assortment of veritable Australian fashion industry heavyweights, you might include some of the following: IMG’s head of fashion, Ellery’s general manager, naturally Vogue Australia’s own editor-in-chief, Edwina McCann, the merchandise director of David Jones, the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar Australia and the director of Parlour X. Throw in MyTheresa.com’s buying director Justin O’Shea, and you’ve got yourself quite the dinner party. 

As the judging panel for the 2016 St. George NextGen show, they make for one tough crowd. Fittingly, the calibre of designers awarded coveted spots in the next St. George NextGen show? High. Very high. 

No need to wait until they show in May; read on to discover six designers preparing to make waves at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016.

KALIVER

The name behind the label: Roni Cross 
Originally from: Wollongong, Australia 
Currently residing in: Sydney, Australia 
Kaliver in six words or less: Beautifully distinctive. 
Biggest source of inspiration: Nature, and letting myself be open to the possibility of greatness. 
The job you quit to become a designer: Bartender 
Dream collaboration: Alexander Wang x Kaliver or Oliver Rousteing x Kaliver 
Coolest person to like one of your pictures on Instagram (@_kaliver ) : Nadia Fairfax 
A character from film or television who had killer style: Kate Winslet in The Dressmaker and her red dress. Let's just say, that if that really happened in that era, she would have been the new Coco Chanel. 
Something you wore as a teenager that you still think is awesome: A vintage Tsubi electric green angora knit cropped double-breasted long sleeved top.
Three people who would be in your dream front row: Anna Wintour, Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham (if I could have a fourth, I would insert Amal Clooney into the crowd).
