The past few days have seen a faux pas occur in the Australian fashion industry, almost as dramatic as turning up to an event in the same outfit as another. If you follow such things you’ve probably heard that Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia announced they would be moving their dates from

LMFF: Best of Beauty wrap

It’s fitting that my last major post as a L’Oreal Paris ‘Insider‘ for the 2012 L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival takes a look at the best hair and make-up trends and looks to try direct from the runways. The overall theme I noticed was more-is-more. Impact and adornment are keywords to

LMFF: Autumn Winter 2012 Wishlist

Now that the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival has wrapped – bar the wonderful cultural program – I find it valuable to look back over the week (or rather the nine days) that was for Winter wardrobe inspiration. Below I dish up my personal inspiration from LMFF on future DIY projects,

LMFF: Red Carpet Runway featuring Toni Maticevski

Models anointed with gold glitter presented Melbourne designer Toni Maticevski’s couture collection as a grand finale for the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Looks ranged from dramatically dystopian to ethereal. Maticevski’s continuing “fractured” aesthetic showcased gowns that appeared to have been wrenched apart by a hurricane and reassembled in an abstract fashion. Further embellishment came

LMFF: Runway 7

Alex Perry delved firmly into cocktail hour territory with mini-dresses and high-sheen. In a preview of his Red Carpet runway the following night, Toni Maticevski added frills

LMFF: Runway 6

Alice McCall opened runway 6 at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival with delicate scalloped trim, muted prints – a paisley and an M.C. Escher-like version I covet – and thus set the bar for pieces Australia will really want to wear this season. LIFEwithBird, in laid-back mode, sent more-interesting-than-average staple

LMFF: Runway 5

At Runway 5 of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Joveeba came over all cowboys and Indians presenting Navajo knits, fringed leather and feathered accessories. Rodeo Show looked to another heritage era with white lace and nanna-esque florals. A combination of the prior two and sticking closer to home was Shona

LMFF: Mimco 2012

Accessories junkies eat your heart out. Mimco’s 2012 ‘Dreamwarp Society’ collection hit the runway at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Literally starting with a bang, a Chinese drum performance heralded the start of the show. Models – including Jessica Gomes – with dramatic poodle hair and the ultimate panda-eye makeup toted all

LMFF: Runway 4

Some of the models in Runway 4 took off their apparently unwalkable shoes. In front of Vogue editor Kirstie Clements. Quelle horreur! It happens all the time in fashion shows. Shoes are too big, too small, too slippery or really, truly too high. For me it’s a non-issue that should have been dealt
