One of Adelaide's most iconic and renowned fashion designers, Liza Emanuele debuted her latest Spring/Summer 2016 collection entitled Blue Sky on Monday night. Taking place in her King William Street flagship store, the intimate fashion event left guests foraging for their credit cards and pleading for the warmer weather to kick into full swing.
The night began with a Q&A style panel, where the charming Filip Odzak a.k.a Filip with an F picked the minds of Adelaide's fashion personalties Kelly Noble of Glam Adelaide, Jenni Eyles of Curvy Styling and Sonia of Sonia Styling. They shared their favourite upcoming S/S trends, style secrets and social media tips and it's safe to say the audience were left with a few sneaky tips for the perfect seflie (thanks Filip!).
The reveal of Blue Sky followed; a beautiful collection proving why Emanuele remains one of South Australia's most influential fashion designers. The collection is all about empowerment, allowing women to feel better and stronger in their own skin. From the irresistible selection of beautiful dresses, power suits, colourful kaftans and lace sets, there is a piece and style for everyone.
Nautical stripes, fresh florals and pops of bright colour are seasonal favourites for those with an adventurous edge, while soft lilac caters for those who prefer a more simple and feminine look.
This season it's all about easy and comfortable dressing. Think loose palazzo pants, soft georgette tops and effortless shift dresses, easily taking you from day to night (and comfortable the whole time).

Besides the obvious aesthetic appeal of Liza Emanuele's luscious creations (lets face it, it's all beautiful), this Adelaide designer has a huge ethical backbone and passion for our local Fashion industry.
"I do make all my clothes here in South Australia, its not always easy... it's very expensive but its really important for me", Liza says.
"I want to support the industry that has always supported me."
