If last week’s street style shots taught us anything, it’s that fashion is fun, bright and thriving in Australia. The annual Sydney Fashion Week is a powerhouse of young unbridled talent, packed with 75 designers—most of them up and comers—trying to carve a niche. Everyone’s buying with national pride in mind, not to mention a demand for seasonless dressing as determined by the country’s high temps.

We travelled Down Under to see what all the big fuss was about and rounded up the 7 top designers and moments to write home about from Sydney Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.

Earlier this week, we took a dip Down Under to lurk the summery street style outside Sydney Fashion Week. Since we’re suffering from a bit of a slow spring start, the shots were just the dose of melatonin we’d been waiting for. Today, we’re back with more quirky shots from native street style mavens and international attendees alike. Vibrant mirrored shades, nineties-inspired cami dresses and popping colour combos are persistent throughout—as is that classic Aussie sense of unadulterated fun.

For those of you who attended any of the recent fashion weeks, the thought of attending shows during the summer is but a mere fantasy. Sandals! Crop tops! A far cry from February’s blizzards. Fantasy proves reality in Australia, where Sydney Fashion Week is underway and while it’s technically considered autumn down under, the street style outside the shows is anything but covered up.

In this first batch of photos, photographer Stefania Yarhi captures the Sydney fashion crowd in a mix of local labels like Discount Universe and international must haves from Prada, Kenzo and Céline. Aussie street style stars like Margaret Zhang and Nicole Warne seem perfectly in element, wearing airy neon pieces. Stay tuned for more epic street style out of Sydney. Summer can’t come soon enough.

A week after Toronto Fashion Week, one of the city’s fashion stars made her return to the runway after a three-year hiatus. In case you need a refresh, The Coveteur co-founder Erin Kleinberg used to be a designer. Back in the mid-oughts, she became a bright young thing when stars like Mischa Barton, Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian were spotted in her low-key wares. For the next few years, she sold worldwide at Holt Renfrew, Barney’s, Nordstrom and others until putting the collection on hold to dominate the industry in another way: creeping the designer-filled closets of fashion’s elite.

Matthew Gallagher Fall 2014: 20 moody romantic looks that prove this designer’s one to watch status

When designer Matthew Gallagher came out to give his mother a hug after his Fall 2014 collection, I wanted to jump up and give him a hug too. Closing out World MasterCard Fashion Week with a bang, Gallagher’s show was easily one of the highlights of the week.

Beginning with moody film of misty woods, the collection unfolded into the dark romance trend seen elsewhere on the runways this season with vampy makeup, wispy hair and elegantly tailored dresses. The Milan-trained designer lived up to his credentials—folds and drapes fell with precise placement and fluted skirting was done so finely that the seams were practically invisible.

Shoulders and necklines were of a particular focus for Gallagher, each piece presenting a new look that was conservative and yet still had plenty of allure. For example, a long-sleeved slate grey crepe dress had a safari-esque lace up neckline, plunging all the way down to the diaphragm, balanced out with a longer hem and a demure thigh slit. Even a deep red wool poncho dress was made evening-wear-appropriate thanks to the high rise of the asymmetrical hem, masterful neckline detailing, and a slim sleeve. The matching billowing camel coat had a similar glamour factor—it looked like something out of Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2014 collection.

When classic guitar opens a runway show, it’s pretty obvious that rock ‘n’ roll inspired looks are about to come next. Such was the case at Thursday night’s Rudsak Fall 2014 presentation, which helped celebrate the brand’s 20th anniversary with signature edge. Featuring a 51-look onslaught of crop ribbed moto jackets in black, bordeaux and green, skin-tight metallic leather minis and lace tights, the collection looks were accented by Anna Karenina-worthy Russian fur hats to imply a luxe element.

Staying true to Rudsak’s rebellious aesthetic, badass leather outerwear reigned alongside longer, warmer hooded pieces. Standouts included a voluminous black coat rimmed with leather and long, flow-y fur and slick, branded guitar cases and backpacks. That, and of course, its finale IRL rockstar: model/DJ Harley Viera-Newton, who closed the show.
