Fashion at Altitude at Melbourne’s GPO

I confess I was on double duty at the Fashion at Altitude parades last week; both checking it all out in my capacity as editor of StyleMelbourne and also slipping into my role as community manager (basically in charge of writing/running their snazzy new website) for Melbourne’s GPO. So I guess that’s the disclosure thing taken care of and since you know I can’t really be unbiased about the (honestly) simply beautiful clothing labels here’s my favourite pieces from the parades;

Fashion at Altitude Melbourne's GPO MSFW 2009 paradeThis Wayne Cooper gown, in one of the hues in of the season – hot pink – is suitable for the red carpet yet not to be taken too seriously with it shorter front.

PS I’ve been sporting the bright lip and solid, simple eye liner look often since the show. Now if I could just have a talented hairstylist on call to help my disastrous hair into those vintage inspired structural styles!
