ALICE McCALL - COSMIA -15 years
She moves like she don’t care, smooth as silk, cool as air...
This year at MBFWA marked fifteen years for the Alice McCall label. Having previously seen the collections at both Carriageworks and the Overseas passenger terminal I was disappointed I couldn't make this years invite. Once again the collection was playful with a hint of romance
which took us back to the roots of the label.
Fossicking around in her mother’s dress up box brimming with sparkles and silk, lurex and wild technicolor prints. It was the late 70s and a young Alice was immersed in the wonderland of that heady era – soft filters and ice-cream pastels, sequins and sexual liberation, Blondie album covers, Laura Ashley tissue boxes, diamante buttons, sky-high skirts.
