Last week it was that time again: Australian Fashion Week. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is a chance for leading Australian and Asia Pacific designers to showcase their work in the iconic Sydney. Though Fashion Week is an incredibly exciting (and stressful) time for designers, it is also a time for models to really stand out and make a name for themselves. Surrounded by some of the biggest names in the fashion world, MBFW is an opportunity for models to launch their international careers walking for well-known designers in iconic locations. To celebrate this exciting time in the fashion calendar, we have compiled a list of some of the most unique and creative runway shows from 2016 Fashion Weeks worldwide.
