There were a few absentees this Sydney Fashion Week. Dion Lee, one of Australia’s most promising young designers declined, perhaps because he just had a successful presentation in London? (That’s my suspicion.) Camila and Marc and Sass & Bide, two hugely successful design duos decided to wait it out as well and instead presented their collections at a showroom or organized some nice dinners for friends, editors and the likes of us, bloggers. But it’s not until I saw Josh Goot‘s collection that I realized what a gap these missing designers must have left. I almost fell over when I saw all the colorful and pristine jersey hanging on one rack. Josh’ talent could’ve outshone anyone on the catwalk. Everything looked so minimal but exciting at the same time. It had a little bit of that scuba feel with cutouts and crops that sexied up the boxiness of the cushiony knits. I ordered two full looks on the spot. I lost him for a while, but Josh is right back on my list of favorites!
