Summary This week on Art Nation Fenella Kernebone is exploring the latest trends in Australian fashion and design and the identities behind the scenes. Tracing the historical roots of street fashion photography to current day influences, Fenella hits the streets with Xiaohan Shen, one of Sydney's top street photographers, and asks why people are looking less to glossy magazines for inspiration and more to the stylish individuals on the street. Australian men and fashion haven't always been the best of friends. But in recent years an increasing awareness of style and sophistication has crept into the wardrobes of gents. Art Nation checks out the collections of some of Australia's most exciting young menswear designers, including Jack London and Claude Maus.Namila Benson is off looking at the rise of eco fashion in an industry that is notorious for waste and environmentally unsound practices. She meets Kylie Zerbest from Obus and Georgia McCorkill, two designers who create garments that are both striking and sustainable.When it comes to accessories, The House of Baulch is the embodiment of glamour. Designer Kathryn Baulch's jewellery is not for the faint hearted and her dynamic and colourful designs have made her one of Australia's hottest jewellers. Art Nation also looks back at the work of Bruno Benini, one of Australia's most prolific fashion photographers, whose career spanned more than 30 years. His gorgeous images capture the chic of the 1950s and 60s and the sexiness of the 70s. PRODUCTION DETAILSArt Nation is produced by ABC TV.
