Film & Fashion at Lygon Court


a show that combines the best of spring fashion from home grown designers and a biopic about one of the greatest designers in fashion history (that’s Valentino), this show was sure to go down a treat. The show was an opportunity for designers to showcase their spring lines with the catwalk being created right in front of the big screen. The ominous grey screen made for a picturesque back drop for the vibrant and contemporary creations on display. The parade took place in the Nova cinemas at Lygon Court. Designs from Trelise Cooper, Country Road, Third Millenium, Midas, Ojay, Verge, Mela Purdie and the internationally renowned and always stunning Lisa Ho reflected the feelings of spring and embodied romance and style in a range of contemporary styled conservative dresses, shirts and skirts with modern touches of sass.

Silver was the colour of choice for several designers with pieces appearing soft and flowing, but stylishly fitted to complement a woman’s shape and cut to expose legs. An exciting take on the little black dress with tight layers and a matching belt was a definite high point as was the absolutely beautiful and pixie like dress that was a pleasant trip into nostalgia with its inspiration derived from an early 19th century woman’s night shirt. Some very sophisticated pants and shirt combos were on display with a cute sheer silvery top sitting atop a pair of white pants standing out. Layers were explored in both dresses and skirts with intriguing takes on what constitutes layers. A black skirt with leaf-like pieces demanded attention and possibly over shadowed its sort pink tank. Ruffles and stiletto heels made for exciting accessories to a sweet and endearing collection.
