The Australian duo, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, seemed to start their design journey at London’s Portobello Road and then on to the Far East and back, gathering inspiration along the way. Billowing harem pants in bold stripes and ethnic prints suggested that Arabia was one of their stops. Symmetrical tops that echoed the geometric patterns of these billowing trousers looked like traditional ceremonial garb. Neckpieces in half-moon crescent shapes were worn low on the chest, and one was adorned with liquid silver chains. Continuing on the exotic route, gold-encrusted garb showed influence from ancient Egypt. Tops and dresses were outlined at the neckline and waist with elegant shapes that stenciled the body. Fishnet leggings received metal beads in patterns that imitated armor or protective gear.
