Soeli Pedrozo - master manipulator...of fabrics.

It's always exciting to see the work of students a few years ahead of oneself, especially when being shown amongst more established designers at Rosemont Australian Fashion Week. "The innovators" show consisting of 4 graduates from Ultimo Tafe took place directly after the Liso Ho show, further highlighting the contrast between commercialism and innovation.

I was particularly impressed by Soeli Pedrozo's collection. Her cleverly manipulated architectural folds became somewhat of a signature look. 

Her witty take on masculine inspired tailored clothing also worked well, with mens pants pockets turning up in unexpected places. 

And who can say no to a bit of extreme ruching?

I'm sure there will be many others who saw the show that would agree that Soeli Pedrozi is a talent who won't be forgotten any time soon. I look forward to seeing what direction she goes in next.
