Fashfest 2014: Designer Review – Braddon Tailors

I am kicking off my in-depth reviews of the Fashfest 2014 menswear collections with Braddon Tailors, as this was the first Menswear collection shown.

The photos for this post were generously provided by the amazing Ash from Silque Photography and Design.

I really enjoyed meeting Pip and Tarun before Fashfest kicked off for the year, and learning about their business and what it offers Canberra was a highlight of the year so far for me. I was really excited to see what the boys had in store for their runway show.

Braddon Tailors showed 9 looks, a mix of corporate, casual and luxe suiting and denim wear. There were 7 men’s and 2 women’s looks, all done in polished perfection, as one would expect from Canberra’s premier tailors.

The men’s and women’s denim suits were especially good, showcasing the Braddon Tailor’s commitment to fine tailoring, luxe fabrics and fighting back against off-the-rack cuts that neither flatter nor support the body.

Pip and Tarun really showed that they are a force to be reckoned with on the Canberra Menswear scene. The looks that they showed were sleek and polished, but interesting. This was not the soulless suit-hire catalogue that you flicked through ahead of your twelfth-grade formal before ultimately picking the same tux as your mates.

Special mention has to be made of the amazing neckwear supplied by Henry Carter for the show. The wool/silk neckties and pure silk scarves were the perfect accent to this collection. In fact, my favourite look of the whole collection was the model who wore shorts and short-sleeves with a beautiful Henry Carter silk scarf. It was so effortlessly chic, I can’t wait to try something similar myself.

These are clothes that challenge you to be the best dresses man (or woman) that you can be; and the boys from Braddon Tailors are the perfect guides to get you there.

Braddon Tailors suits are made to order. You can organise an appointment with Pip and Tarun by emailing them on: info@braddontailors.com
