>> Karen Walker's particular breed of Aussie quirk gets a kick of Victorian romance for Fall 2012. High-neck blouses, nipped-waist dresses, and ornate brocades all got play, as did Belle Epoque skirts and ruffle-cuffed sleeves. But don't go thinking Walker's changed her offbeat ways. There was also a hefty dose of '60s pop and even a little Captain Nemo worked into the fray. The former was found in oversized paisleys and super-vivid hues, the latter in Naval coats and Winklepicker shoes. Classic Karen Walker — through and through.
