Independent Runway at LMFF 2013

Kathryn Beker, Neo Dia, Jolet, Fame Agenda; there’s so many talented (and just darn buyable if you can find them) independent designers around town at the moment. Livia Arena is another favourite of mine. And it seems I won’t get much argument from the smart cookies at LMFF as her

L’Oreal Paris Runway 6 at LMFF 2013

In an era when many fashion labels feel as though there is little choice but to send their designs overseas to get made, Cylk are impressively turning the tables. At the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival they presented a capsule collection that was entirely fashioned in Australia! The innovative label also

Famous for Fashion Boutique Edition at LMFF 2013

The ‘Boutique’ (read: High Street, Armadale) edition of Famous for Fashion at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival was set against an ingenious backdrop of hydrangeas.

Famous for Fashion Chapel Street Edition at LMFF 2013

It’s hard to deny that Chapel Street is, as the title of their recent catwalk show concludes, famous for fashion. Their presentation at the 2013 L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival saw the likes of Alice McCall, Gorman, Stevie, Cylk, Autonomy, ML Denim, Shakuhachi, Jack London, Fat’s indy label line-up and Shag’s

Red Carpet Runway at LMFF 2013

If it wasn’t the best show I’d seen in my decade of covering the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, it came damn close. Bridal “fashion” shows are something I’d usually only recommend for the High Street, Armadale set. Yet LMFF’s Red Carpet Runway was world class in production; all the way

Sportsgirl National Graduate Showcase at LMFF 2013

I remember quite a few years ago they had to basically give away tickets to Sportsgirl’s National Graduate Showcase to fill the space. No more! It seems Melbourne has cottoned on to the fact that it is consistently the most entertaining and inspiring runway at LMFF and the grads now

L’Oreal Paris Runway 5 at LMFF 2013

“You sort of look back and think ‘was it really that long ago?’” reminisced Arthur Galan who celebrated his label’s 15th birthday amid the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival this year. “It’s been an amazing journey,” relays the designer who in 1999 thought, “let’s just open the store and put some

L’Oreal Paris Runway 4 at LMFF 2013

Congratulations to Kirrily Johnston on a recent addition to her family! The designer (smartly) skipped LMFF this year to stay home and dote on her newborn bub but her Autumn/Winter collection still made it to Melbourne’s catwalks. The range titled coincidentally titled ‘Babylonia’ (baby brain perhaps?) is apparently an ode

L’Oreal Paris Runway 3 at LMFF 2013

In her own words Yeojin Bae’s latest offerings for her label YB J’Aime is “chic, Parisian, tailored and seductive”. In this regard, the ‘Gypset’ collection continues Yeojin’s design legacy, only this time with a nod to a very refined version of the 70’s. No zany platforms here. It’s all drawstrings,
