Are ball gowns trending in Australia?

There have been a lot of new fashion trends in Australia and we loved summarising them for you. Here are the latest trends to hit the Australian market.


Heidi Klum inspires Melbourne-based designer, Kate Mai, to create an A-line dress with a unique 3-D side pocket and mini scallop edge. This dramatic change on a classic style has found success with female celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez recently wearing this fresh coat of black paint on their promenades.

True Religion has recently released their summer range at Myer. This year, the brand is incorporating prom dresses with starched creases to add definition and character to their silhouettes. The stitching accentuates each dress’s features: the curve of the bust line, the slant of the hip, and the hourglass curve from collarbone to knees. This sartorial innovation makes True Religion one of Australia’s most exciting designers today.


Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection drew inspiration from the landscape of Australia. The ‘Fiona’ dress is cut with a thigh-skimming, flatters all curves and balances its voluminous, luscious pleats with a draped back. The bright, bold colours will make the Fiona a perfect match for your prom date!

Baroque inspired designs are under way and the main theme this season is high necklines. Gucci, Fendi and Louis Vuitton are just some of the brands putting the baroque look on this season.


Prada released two new styles ranging from bold patterns in traditional tailoring to surrealist embroidered suits with shirts. The collection’s focus was on sensuality and luxury; sticking true to the brand’s spirit.


Designer, Sarah Burton, has collaborated with Australian brand, Giambattista Valli on a collection of dresses inspired by 20th century fashion.


The ‘Sapphire’ dress from Fendi will be fitting every woman’s desires. The hand-embellished applique at the chest area pins the dress to the body and balances out the high neckline. This versatile piece is in-line with Fendi’s ongoing theme of sensuality and luxury: making it an essential dress for any occasion.


Bottega Veneta’s ‘Nola’ dress is a boho-inspired, tulip skirt which features a glowing stone at the neckline. This dress was specifically designed for the bohemian bride: matching the laid-back bride to her laid-back wedding.


The ‘Esther’ gown by Louis Vuitton is an elegant piece that showcases the label’s vintage-inspired craftsmanship.


The ‘Margot’ dress from Maison Margiela is a sultry silhouette. This dress is cut with a high-neck, plunging back and appliqué detailing at the front and chest. This piece is perfect for any bride who wants to show off their curves.


A black lace fit-and-flare dress by Moschino will have you drawing attention to the swirling, deep V neckline that frames the bodice and reveals your décolletage.
