Hello, and welcome to another season of eye-pleasing decadence with Australian label, Macgraw. Their AAFW show—a virtual runway, set on the most magnificent lawn in all of Sydney—is giving us big modern-day Bridgerton vibes. (Although the Regency-era corsets and pearl headbands from the most bingeable Netflix show have been swapped out with puffed sleeves, baby doll dresses and chic striped two-piece sets).
Shimma, our fave beach-going pal, was backstage with her film camera to shoot some snaps of her and her fellow model friends, including other CPC girls like Holly Magson, Penny Capp, and Amanda Dias. Also there was Matilda Dodds, part-time model, part-time gothic castle tour guide, full-time angel.
Grab your croquet set, find the nearest patch of grass, and embrace the whimsy in one of their exquisite, floral-heavy designs, which are shoppable as of… right now! Before you do, though, scroll down to read our quick fire round of qs with the talented designers behind one of our fave Aussie brands, Beth and Tessa...
