As the biggest week in Australian fashion washes over Sydney, Carriageworks lights up; humming and vibrant with a sea of creatives. And while our attention is certainly fixed on the looks floating down the runway, we can't deny that street style is its equal contender. After all, is there a greater joy than how fashion is interpreted from one to the next?
On the first day of the festivities the weather took on a cool edge and the clouds threatened showers at a moments notice. As a result, blazers and winter coats were abound. As were knee-high boots and bursts of colour for the ultimate lesson in dopamine dressing. RUSSH Hour podcast host Isabella Manfredi made an appearance, as did Rachel Rutt, Sarah Ellen, Ilkin Kurt and Mercedes Rigby. As for day two? You're going to have to read on to find out.
Below, we're simulating the bustling precinct of Carriageworks and beyond, by bringing you our favourite street style moments from AAFW so far. Find the them all, below. Happy Afterpay Australian Fashion Week 2022 to all who celebrate!
