Nailing It at Australian Fashion Week: Trends from Bec & Bridge, Vik & Woods and Staple The Label

Australian Fashion Week 2024 was not just a showcase of cutting edge fashion but also of bold and innovative beauty trends. Among the highlights were the stunning nail designs featured in shows for three iconic Australian brands: Bec & Bridge, Vik & Woods, and Staple the Label.

Each brand brought its unique aesthetic to the runway, complemented by bespoke nail art that completed each look perfectly. Here's a closer look at how we achieved these trendsetting styles and how you can recreate them.

Bec and Bridge: Bold and Sculptural Elegance

Bec & Bridge are known for their sleek silhouettes and powerful femininity. This season, they opted for 2 bold, yet minimalist nail designs to complement their collection. Look 1 featured the colour of the season- short, bold, glossy burgundy. Look 2 featured a short, chic and clean skin base.

Viktoria & Woods: Earthy Textures and Tones

The Viktoria & Woods collection epitomised understated elegance. In keeping with this theme, the nails for the show were crafted to mirror this sophistication through a unique method that featured a clean and glossy base without using any gel polish.

Get the Look:

  • Trim the nails short and file into a square shape
  • Using the Magic Shiner start with the 400 grit green side to buff your nails
  • Then proceed to buff with the 3000 grit white side to achieve a stunningly smooth and polished nail
  • Finished off with Cuticle Oil

 

Staple the Label: Edgy Metallics and Pastels

For Staple the Label, known for its elevated classics for a modern lifestyle. Using 2 different looks, Look 1 featured a feminine, nude base on a medium round shape and Look 2 featured the same bold and glossy burgundy base as Bec & Bridge but in Short Almond.
