The eyes of the fashion world are on Australia and its many design talents this week as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia returns to Sydney in a new Resort collection showcase format for 2016. (Which in non-fashion speak means lots of beautiful, wearable, trans-seasonal clothes, including beachwear – ideal for our climate all year round.)

Over six days, international buyers, bloggers and media will join the local throng to witness some sartorial magic and probably a little creative madness at times too. In celebration of MBFWA16 and the local designers we appreciate so deeply, GRAZIA has created an Australian first ‘virtual catwalk’ showcasing 12 of our favourite home-grown labels presented in a beautiful way that two dimensions simply don’t allow. 

Which of these looks by Maticevski, Romance Was Born, Ginger & Smart, Dion Lee, TOME, Christahlea, Camilla and Marc, Willow, Michael Lo Sordo, Ellery, Zimmerman and Alex Perry would you choose out of an official line-up? We suspect it may prove impossible to pick just one…
