Alice McCall is the latest designer taking a new approach when it comes to the fashion calendar.
Instead of a runway show, this designer is launching a special pre-order of select pieces from the new Resort21 collection - and this pre-order period launches online today.
Alice McCall will be offering 12 exclusive pieces on-site, available to order right now. A fashion preview of sorts. This is your chance to sneak a peek at key pieces from the collection and maybe even reserve a piece or two.
The Resort21 collection is called Girl, Liberty! and was set to show at MBFWA 2021. But after this year's Australian Fashion Week showcase was forced to cancel amid COVID-19 social-distancing restrictions, Girl, Liberty! has remained sight unseen. Until now.
Girl, Liberty! tells the story of fearlessness. It’s a collection that invites everyone to the party to celebrate our unapologetic selves. The pieces weave a story that calls back to some of the most vibrant and revolutionary moments in history, all the while reminding up that joy, revelry and positivity are still alive and well.
We're talking club-going diva dresses, velvet suits, flared legs and bold late-70s, early-80s metallics. It's a kind of power dressing from the apex of disco club culture. Alice McCall calls it a story of "fearless self-expression" and "an open invitation to fully-embrace our biggest and boldest selves". We barely need an invitation!
It's a collection that embodies the ethos that you bring the party with you, wherever you go.
Other notable designs from the collection include Gold and Pricilla pink metallic mini-coats, mini-skirts, mini-tops, all with hand-crochet trims. Think about what looks good under the revolving light of a disco ball and you're there.
Alice McCall has designed the collection to herald the start of summer 2021: "a return to unity, ingenuity and fun". Something I'm certain we all could use right now.
You can see the key pieces from Girl, Liberty! in the official video below, which features models Gabriella Brooks and Kat Wu against a sound track from Melbourne local band No Zu. Or head straight to the Alice McCall website to shop.
