AUSTRALIAN FASHION WEEK S/S 2011 STANDOUT: JOSH GOOT

The Australian Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011/12 has just concluded. After going through all the pictures, there is one collection we felt the urge to share – Josh Goot. While promising talents are popping out of emerging fashion cities left and right, Josh Goot is definitely a talent that has to be mentioned. The general sunny and bright Australian culture lends a hand to an optimistic mood to his collection and it has qualities that are both innovative in concept and mature in execution; this particular combination bolds well for the relatively unknown label from down under.

Josh Goot

Josh Goot began designing his collection in 2005 and has since garnered a few accolades. Among which include a Tiffany & Co. Young Talent award in 2005 as well as becoming the first Australian designer to create a capsule collection for Target Australia. His collections have been featured on the cover of WWD and the brand has enjoyed some presence in the States through The News PR and sales showroom. Fast forward to 2011/12, his collection blew us away with a combination of fresh colors, clean intellectual silhouettes, gorgeous gradient prints and an overall mature display of innovation.

Another curious fact that out about AFW is it’s interesting timing due to seasonal differences down under. Being in the tale end of Winter, Australian designers are practically designing and producing merchandise for both Australian and Northern Hemisphere Spring. Understandably we saw a mixture of current Spring and Fall trends and Australian Fashion Week could thus be an early indicator of new Spring trends to come once the major cities kick off their Spring fashion weeks in September.

For Josh Goot’s show, we saw clean minimalistic silhouettes reminiscing the ones we usually see in New York and Milan. The silhouettes were full and sculptural.

The beautiful print used throughout the collection are a gradient of colors taking cues from nature and resembling paint strokes. Some standout pieces from this collection feature shift dresses acting as canvases showcasing the colorful “painting”.

The mixture of primary and pastel colors were also a standout from this collection. We saw bright colors aplenty throughout the Fall 2011 runway, and no doubt bright color blocking with both primary and pastel colors will continue to make a big impact.

One of the most impressive elements of Josh Goot’s Spring 2011/12 collection is the maturity shown through his restraint. Young designers at times feel the need to over -design to showcase their abilities, but instead of that, Goot showed signs of major league aesthetic with his clean lines and bold choice of  monochromatic styling.

While we keep a close eye of Josh Goot and his Australian contemporaries, you should also start looking out for Australian labels popping up in stores near you. Some that are already making grounds in the States are Camilla and Marc, Dion Lee, Zimmermann and Lover. Expect smaller fashion forward boutiques to be the first ones introducing more Australian labels.

Here are some other of Josh Goot’s Spring 2011/12 designs:
