Michael Lo Sordo

Recent BT Emerging Fashion Designer Award winner Michael Lo Sordo presented his 6th collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA). The designer explains that rather than exterior inspiration, he focuses on “the [Michael Lo Sordo] woman, where can we dress her, how can we dress her. As a designer I’m like an antenna…listening to what you guys want to wear.” Apparently, we'll want to wear a vaguely 80s New York urbanite’s wardrobe this summer. Lo Sordo played with the idea of pinstripe suiting and lightweight trench coats in soft colours. Pops of metallic foil, patent leather and python added a dose of gloss.
