Rosemount Australian Fashion Week - Interview with Nicola Finetti from Tangent Mag

Nicola Finetti has been stitching his way into our wardrobes for 15 years now, and judging by his latest offerings at the 2010 Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, it shows! His collection for spring/summer 2010/2011 successfully captured all the current trends (tulle, details and embellishments, folds, etc) and delivered them in an attractive collection made for city cocktail parties and edgier weddings (particularly the 60's-inspired smock dress).

Finetti's glamorous new range consisted of elegant creams and whites, contrasted with black in a minimal colour palette. Sparkling fabrics, tiny weave details, rouches, frills and jewels made simple pieces sparkle.

The Nicola Finetti label was launched in Australia in 1995 and has been selling nationally in leading boutiques and giant department store Myer ever since. The Nicola Finetti accessories are also stocked in Myer. Nicola Finetti has now secured leading stockists in Singapore, Dublin, Dubai, Kuwait, LA, New York and Moscow. Nicola Finetti is the latest label to gain cult status and inspire interest around the world Nicola Finetti also has one flagship stores in Sydney, which has an established client base that spans through to celebrities such as Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Hawkins, Dannii Minogue, Dita Von Teese, Kristy Hinz to name a few.

Ah Nicola, where to begin and where to end? Every piece was an elegantly edgy creation with sculpted skirts and bustiers that exploded with ruffles, pleats and embroidery. There was no garment that walked that catwalk that did not emanate his reputation as the king of extraordinary daywear and statement eveningwear.  Colour entered as a refreshing splash in coral and yellow but his dresses speak loud enough for themselves without all the vibrant colour/print jazz. Nicola’s show was one of technique, embellishment and of course, the thing we love him most for, structure. Viva la structured, detailed and devastatingly divine runway ravishing and more than wardrobe worthy style.


Have a lovely day!… Anna
