Partnering with Indigenous artist Zaachariaha Fielding for their Spring/Summer 25 collection ‘The Nothing’, the show could only be described as an intergalactic and futuristic fashion adventure. It’s been a week since attending, and admittedly I’m still processing the sensory overload that was the show. 

Inducting the 7pm show was no other than the likes of Thelma Plum, Ayesha Madon and the Pip Edwards’ of the world. I wasn’t sure if it was that, or perhaps the overwhelmingly spectacular moonscape set design, that set the tone for the evening. Inspired by Fielding’s radically joyful and storied paintings, the show was described as one that was “neo-future beyond meta-modernism” – whatever that means? 

But in all seriousness, it was a stand out. Overblown fragile tulles, wispy chiffons and satins were all clashed with outrageously chunky beading and embroidery. It somehow was camp but also legitimately broody, and I have no idea how that can even happen. I felt like I was on the set of Blade Runner but also in some sexy alien spaceship all at once. For sure met gala vibes. You can also view the whole runway here – which I highly recommend.
