Peplums were seen everywhere in the Spring Summer 2012/2013 collections shown at Australian Fashion Week. They were featured heavily on skirts, dresses, jackets and the occasional swimwear. By Johnny created a sugary sweet collection with sorbet tones and stripes where the peplum was attached to a top or a dress. Alice McCall's peplums combined pastel tones and floral embroidery which resembled that of a babushka doll. Lisa Ho designed a saturated yellow gown with a satin bodice and peplum which contrasted the silk chiffon skirt. Zimmermann put a clever and unique twist on the peplum as it was incorporated into structured swimwear.
