Buro 24/7 Australia editor Rebecca Caratti shares her highlights from Monday's first two shows - Ginger & Smart and Georgia Alice

After Maticevski's knockout opening show at Barangaroo Reserve yesterday, it might have been hard to match the dazzle and showmanship of that particular Resort '17 collection. But luckily, both Ginger & Smart and Georgia Alice (in her eagerly anticipated MBFWA debut) came up with the goods this morning.

Australian label Ginger & Smart presented a Resort '17 collection with all the hallmarks of a European vacation, thanks to a chic selection of on point summer accessories. Over at Georgia Alice, the Kiwi designer proved why she's being touted as a local designer to watch with a definitive signature of relaxed tailoring and an undone, louche aesthetic.
