Thread and ginger

By Jo Finzi

It’s show time Down Under and the 2008 ready-to-wear collection from Ginger and Smart in Sydney last week was a colourful treat.

The label is well known for its fab accessories but there were bags of everything brilliant and bright on the runway this time.

The maxis were coloured up to the max, there were espadrille strings on arms as well as legs and fringes gave a sizzling swish of movement and colour.

Australian Vogue’s fashion director Naomi Smith summed up the mood perfectly: “It’s very casual and colourful, and great for a beach holiday.”
