Marnie Skillings at Fashion Week

Marnie Skillings joined designers such as Collette Dinnigan in releasing her Spring / Summer 2010 collection ahead of the official fashion week kick off.

Ethereal models looked happy and relaxed in feminine colours and florals on Thursday April 29th at Palm House in Sydney.

Gorgeous New Zealand model, Zippora Seven, was among just some of the girls who Sophie Roberts, ghd’s Hair Director, worked her magic on. She created a ‘50s inspired look that worked perfectly with the array of shift dresses, cardigans, maxi dresses and long singlets.

Marnie Skillings first debuted her label in 2000 at Australian Fashion Week, as part of a ready-to-wear group show with three other graduates of Australia's industry incubator, the Fashion Design School at East Sydney Technical College.

Since then Skillings and her work have been featured in editorials for all the major glossies, including: Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Nylon, Marie Claire and In-Style, while her celebrity fans include Kylie Minogue and Mischa Barton. In 2006 Skillings was asked to dress rock star siblings The Veronicas for red carpet appearances. Soon afterwards, she was named Pantene Young Woman of the Year in the Fashion category.

Marnie Skillings is stocked in prestigious boutiques throughout Australia, and internationally, in Indonesia, Italy, Canada and the US. In 2007, the Marnie Skillings boutique opened in Sydney's Woollahra, and since then has acquired a niche range of local and international labels that are sold alongside Skillings' own collections.
