EMMA MULHOLLAND Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

Australian-designer Emma Mulholland made her debut a few seasons ago as one of four students chosen by TAFE to show during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. The designer met an immediate media success and artists such as Grimes, Azealia Banks, M.I.A, and Kanye West have been spotted with her designs since then. Inspired by superstition, haunted houses and 90s slasher movies (think Scream, I know What You Did Last Summer) Mulholland’s latest collection A/W 2017 will have you possessed. For this season, the designer have opted for a dark color palette not exempt in any way of a fun touch. It is a cocky and hot girl who goes out with confident wearing Mulholland’s clothes. Key pieces include a ‘Black Cat’ faux fur jacket done in collaboration with Melbourne designer Gun Shy, a Ghost Leopard silk dress and a range of unique denim pieces with 90s-horror-film-inspired embroidered patches which are set to become an instant classic.

Other looks included a black satin sleeveless gown with the label’s ubiquitous shirtsleeve-wrapped shoulders, worn a …
