Runway Review: Tina Kalivas at the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival (LMFF)

Tina Kalivas S/S 10 collection, Polyrhythm, was inspired by the “mysterious natural geometry that lies at the very heart of indigenous African culture”, with some pieces using materials and embroidery developed in Africa. The use of meticulous pattern cutting, folding techniques and carefully aligning the organic fabrics show the natural geometry, and are mixed with African prints that give each individual garment a unique feel. Pieces include a peplum skirt, fitted trousers and shapely dresses just to name a few, all with amazing detailing and made from a selection of gorgeous fabrics.
