Inspired by an amusement park in Sydney, Australia that operated from 1906 to 1911, designer Nicky Zimmerman gave us uncomplicated Edwardian-like corsetry and scenic-print dresses alongside stripy dresses reminiscent of circus tents with billowy trimmings resembling seaweed.

This Paris Fashion Week Spring RTW 2023 collection was quite the rollercoaster as its inspirations ranged from Vikings and Scandinavian fairy tales to the epic science fiction film Dune, directed by David Lynch.

Miu Miu’s Spring RTW 2023 collection felt a little bit serious with an equal amount of sexy but in a young, fun kind of way. The shapes were simple, as were the cuts, and fabric choices seem to adventure from leather and stonewashed denim to nylon.
