One of the most colourful and freshest collections to be shown at this years MBFWA was House of Cannon's collection tittled Daydreaming Detroit. It was designer Annie - Cannon Brooks first time showcasing at Australian Fashion week. 

Inspiration was drawn from the rebirth of the City of Detroit which was affected by the collapse of the motor production industry. It could even be relatable to our very own car manufacturing industry; however we are still going through the uncertain future. 

The collection was mainly print based with a collaboration with artists David T Walker of United Kingdom and Wictor Franco of House of Cannon. The standout was the Speed racer esque graphic. It wasn't just car prints that featured there were images that reflected nature and rebirth.  The grey toned prints featured represented a post apocalyptic time. Some prints were busier than others and provided options for those not taking the plunge with bolder graphics. There was a range of sporty separates; shift dresses and maxi dresses for the women with plenty of volume and movement.

 House of Cannon was also one of the few designers that featured both mens and women's styles with a capsule mens range designed for MBFWA with both jackets and street and sport appeal.
