BEST OF [FAT]: In photos and rhyming couplets, part II

This is part II of our [FAT] (phat?) rhyming coverage of the best Alternative Arts & Fashion Week in seasons. (You can read the first part here.) Words by James Grainger. Photography by Natalie Castellino.

BEST CAMEO

Startled by flashes of capes and lamé,
The crowd wants to rise and storm the runway.

Pastel Supernova and Gail McInnes at Refined by Evan Biddell.

BEST BEEFCAKE

Dressed up for war and dressed for bad weather,
The men take the stage in khaki and leather.

Both looks from Refined by Evan Biddell.

BEST USE OF NEUTRALS

Call them tan or brown or sandy or cocoa:
There’s nothing beige about either combo.

At Epoque (above) and Jasper Garvida (below).

BEST BOLD

“There’s no rhyme for orange,” the poet laments,
Designers love colour, a treat for the senses.

At Ado les Scents (above) and Jasper Garvida (below)
