The illustrious Michael Lo Sordo is back at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week (AAFW) to showcase his Resort '24 collection for his eponymous fashion label. This marks not only his 14th Australian Fashion Week runway presentation since debuting in 2008 as part of IMG’s Next Gen program but also his 10th anniversary in the business - talk about impressive!
The highly anticipated runway was presented by none other than Afterpay, and boy, did it deliver! Lo Sordo's commitment to quality, luxury, grandeur, and confidence shone through in every piece of the collection, showcasing his mastery of romanticism. Hand-crafted in Australia using sustainable techniques, the collection features staple yet statement pieces that are perfect for innovating from season to season.
Lo Sordo found inspiration in the cultural richness of French nightclubs, with the collection paying homage to famous nightclubs that gained popularity in the 1970s. The use of dimly lit silk, velvet, and drapery creates a glistening effect under the reflection of moonlight, perfectly capturing the essence of the "velvet underground" that dominated the nightclub scene.
But it wouldn't be a Michael Lo Sordo collection without a touch of whimsy, and he certainly didn't disappoint. Lo Sordo partnered with Hendricks to create the Luna X Hendricks dress, complete with a beautiful diamond seam detail that mimics the brand's iconic label. And for all you gents out there, Lo Sordo debuted his first menswear collection on the runway - we can't wait to see what he has in store!
Founder and Creative Director, Michael Lo Sordo, shared his excitement, saying:
“My heart immediately went back to our debut Next Gen show. I’m not only proud, but extremely excited to be celebrating this milestone together with IMG at AAFW. The show will offer a sentimental look back at where we’ve been as a brand, while also demonstrating the future direction of the Michael Lo Sordo label. This is also an opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me.”
Lo Sordo's influence on Australian fashion is undeniable, and we cannot wait to see what else he has in store for us. Cheers to 10 years, Michael!
