Runway 1 | Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014

It has been a bit of tumultuous time for couture designer Jason Grech of late. When creating the current ‘Birds of Prey’ range he reveals “I was in a dark sort of place, it’s not my old, bright, cheery, collection.” In the designer’s own words the collection is “majestic, a

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014

This week I’ll be condensing some of the highlight MBFWA catwalk presentations down into bite-sized pieces for New York based publication The Fashion Spot. So if you’re sans time or trying to see the runways incognito from your desk, tune in here. The show list will be updated as we

MSFW | Designer Runway 1 | 2013

Theatre. That’s the term that sums up the opening designer runway at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week for 2013. From the doll-like musicians that tunefully accompanied each designer showing, to Richard Nylon’s finale of glow-in-the-dark, head-in-the-clouds, can’t-even-call- them-millinery creations, MSFW this year kicked off with the very best kind of drama.
