This post is later than I had hoped as I’ve been on a much-needed break. I was very fortunate to see some runway shows at this year’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, one of the many perks of volunteering for MSFW.
I wanted to share some of the amazing upcoming talent from RMIT School of Fashion and Textiles. Think innovative, fresh and experimental designs. I predict Emma Bovill will be one to watch. Her collection was an artistic mishmash of tribal and folk influences. I Loved the unexpected use of hair as fringing on her garments and bags, and the jewelled fluffy slippers added a touch of luxe.
The Couture runway was captivating with the highlight being Craig Braybrook’s Spanish influenced collection, that wowed, with an array of dramatic gowns perfectly adorned with super sized jewels by Jeanette Maree. Romance was in the air with Nevenka’s floaty, ethereal boho frocks and Akira Isogawa’s oriental inspired pretty floral embellished creations.
Did you catch any of the runways for MSFW and what looks did you fall in love with?
