Discover AW22 with Stuart Walford

Stuart Walford is a Melbourne based fashion stylist and creative consultant. Fresh off the back of styling the 2022 PayPal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Stuart collaborated with Emporium Melbourne to showcase the very best of Autumn Winter 2022 looks that you can find in centre now.


When the temperature drops, the weather calls for layers, making way for a mash up of textures and textiles. Nothing compares to exploring the new Autumn Winter season in person, to have that tactile experience of touching and feeling all the different fabrications. Textures are a key factor in creating that warm feeling of comfort which we look for in our winter layers. Think boucle wools, cashmere roll necks, buttery leathers and above all else, shaggy faux furs as key textures that are trending this Autumn Winter.

Erin is styled in an incredible faux fur jacket found at Zadig et Voltaire, it has a beautiful viridian green and rock n’ roll shaggy texture. Styled back with a POLO Ralph Lauren tartan fringed wrap skirt it is a fabulous clash of cosy textures and rich green colours, but then softened with a delicate blouse from Aje. This juxtaposition allows the jacket a chance to be a hero.

If you’re finding yourself unsure about texture this season, start small and explore using accessories instead. There’s an abundance of beautiful AW accessories at Emporium Melbourne that will give you your texture fix. Start with a big woolly scarf from Viktoria + Woods or a corduroy bucket hat from Uniqlo.
