Whitehouse Institute of Design on Parade

Judging [singlepic id=11370 w=320 h=240 float=right]  by the Whitehouse Institute of Design‘s end of year parade the future of Melbourne (and Australian) fashion is looking bright. I don’t say that flippantly. The first and second year Melbourne students’ collections were joined by special appearances from Sydney graduates (as the Institute is only a couple of years old here). I can’t wait to see what the first collections from the final year locals may bring next year.

The designs were creative and original (I see a vast amount of shows and this one felt fresh) without being needlessly outrageous -ie. you could sell these pieces – and there was a lot of colour. I want to wear a LOT of the items already. Apart from a noted lack of the overuse of black I saw dreamy themes and restrained takes on avant garde shapes.

Judge for yourself and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
