Federation [singlepic id=14455 w=320 h=240 float=right] Square was abuzz with colour, music and style lovers a plenty on Saturday, as Target hosted their annual Red Market as part of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
The sun heralded the crowds as they indulged in style sessions, free popcorn and fairy floss along with quirky attractions such as 3 minute massages and tarot reading. For the celeb spotters amongst us, Whitney Port (of The Hills & The City infamy) was front row, looking fab in stripes and leopard print, proving that you can indeed mix prints without looking like you got dressed in the dark.
Of course, those in the know were there to see the runway show in order to get their fashion tips for this season in a wallet friendly manner.
Equestrian inspired outfits were high on the agenda, skinny leg denim, crisp shirts and tailored blazers featured heavily, with many of the looks finished to perfection with flat, over the knee suede boots – a MUST have this season.
If the equestrian look doesn’t do it for you, perhaps you’re feeling a little more nautical? The essential red, navy and white striped tees featured heavily, perfect for those chilled Autumn Sunday afternoons.
Knitwear featured heavily, with cosy knit dresses in warm tones of charcoal and plum, plenty of woolly scarves and lots of toasty gloves and beanies.
For the party goers it was body con, exaggerated shoulders, and sequins galore. Pair these looks with coloured hosiery (I’m loving the purple tights) and a cute pair of ankle boots, and you’re set for a stylish night out.
Target presented an economic yet chic Winter style solution.
