Call for Applications for MSFW 2009 event

‘Higher the Hair’ Fashion Parade/Pageant for LMFF

When I found out I would be attending the final event of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival I was rather excited. It didn’t matter what the event was because I knew it would be a wild, extravagant party and a spectacular climax of glamour and beauty. I knew that when

Forever New Pop Up Runway Show

It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. It was a beautiful cloudless day and the blow-up dressing room with currently empty runway had attracted a crowd of a couple hundred people. A gaggle of suited men hovered at the base, congratulating themselves. Unfortunately the lack of clouds

L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival; Runway 6

If dedicated L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival followers were showing any sign of tiring by the fourth day, it certainly wasn’t showing on their faces. A-listers (or B or C) sitting front row included Brett Tucker, Zoe Badwi, Carrie Bickmore, Tiffani Hall, Kate Langbroek, Lillian Frank, Miss Jay Alexander and plenty
