Australian Fashion Week 2016 day five kicks off with We Are Handsome and Camilla – Daily Mail

Australian husband and wife duo We Are Handsome launched their new resort, leisure and swimwear collection in a playful Eighties-inspired show at Australian Fashion Week.

The show, which was held at Sydney venue Carriageworks on Thursday morning, was made up of daring fishnet jumpsuits and teeny tiny high-rise bikini bottoms, which left little to the imagination.

A number of the models stormed the runway in bikini bottoms with nothing but figure-hugging fishnet cover-ups over the top – each of them rocking edgy black lips and heavily drawn-on eyebrows. 

The high-rise suits were enough to certainly suggest a serious amount of grooming required next season.

And it was no different on Thursday morning, with the launch of the new Camilla Jambo Jambo collection at Australian Fashion Week taking place on the stunning Sea Deck vessel.

Celebrities and members of the country’s fashion elite were treated to a sparkling Sydney Harbour backdrop as the new collection was presented – the designer inspired by her trip to Kenya.

As expected, the new collection was all about Camilla’s signature billowing dresses, bohemian kaftans, bright colours and stunning prints, but the African influence was clear. 

Models rocked vibrant beaded bikinis with tribal prints as well as traditional beaded Masai collars and necklaces as they danced down the catwalk.

Romanticism incarnate: On the SWIM catwalk, models took to the runway to model Aqua Blue's romantic designs
Dramatic moment: One model stalked the catwalk wearing layer upon layer of blue tulle, which was then dramatically dropped to the floor
Gem-ius: This finally revealed a gorgeous jewel-encrusted one piece suit

Romanticism incarnate: On the SWIM catwalk, models took to the runway to model Aqua Blue’s romantic designs – one model stalked the catwalk wearing layer upon layer of blue tulle, which was then dramatically dropped to the floor to reveal a one piece suit

Next up, the SWIM catwalk featured a range of three different and very unique swimwear designers.

Starting with the Aqua Blue brand, which is known for its romanticised, chic pieces, models stalked the catwalks wearing beautiful gem-embellished one pieces.

Initially, one model paired a striking one piece with layers upon layers of blue-hued tulle, which she shook off on the catwalk, to reveal the jewel-encrusted swimsuit in its gorgeous entirety.

Aqua Blue was followed by Duskii, the 2013-launched brand famous for high performance neoprene suits and separates. 

This collection was dominated by high fashion, monochrome two piece suits, complete with single hoop earrings, sporty accessories and – thankfully – not such high-rise cuts as We Are Handsome.

Sports luxe:  The Duskii brand followed Aqua Blue's line
Active wear: This was a collection dominated by neoprene, monochrome two piece suits
Fine details: It came complete with single hoop earrings and sporty accessories such as headbands and flat sandals
Cover up: There were also one pieces available, such as this red suit

There was plenty to love in the third swimwear offering of the SWIM show, from Palm Swimwear.

Models rocked black and white headbands with their bikinis, which came in strapless, high-waisted and printed form.

Minimalist, but structured and extremely wearable, the collection was a hit with the crowd, which included the likes of Demi Harman on the front row.
