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.

Behind the Scenes | Fred Hates Fashion | MSFW 2013

For someone who hates fashion Fred sure puts on a spirited runway show. The independent film and fashion show made its debut at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week last night and backstage the vibe was pretty much as you’d imagine a catwalk straight out of a cliched movie scene to be.

Reflections | Fashion Film | MSFW

After creating the award winning fashion film ‘Tomorrow’s Lovers’, Folie a Deux return with ‘Reflections’ commissioned especially for for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (see a short preview above).

The Essentials of MSFW 2013

Models Emily Macfarlane, Natalia Kalinowski & Olivia Langdon launch the MSFW 2013 program

Once upon a time, way back in the early naughties, I attended my very first Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. This year marks my 10th MSFW! It’s been one heady decade of caffeine, coiffure and champagne since. And killer deadlines. With one month to go, Spring will soon be in the

Model Casting | Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2013

While the bevy of beauties (and a record number of beaus) awaiting their turn to try out during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week‘s 2013 model casting is the clichéd “sight for sore eyes”, it can’t be an entirely pleasant experience for them. All eyes are on you as you try to

MSFW Behind the Scenes Fashion Film 2013

Only two short months until the 2013 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week rears her pretty head. Soon we will be whisked away from this frost on a bed of silk and sunshine. Until then, we have a teaser fashion film shot behind the scenes of this year’s campaign by Standard set

Flemington Spring Fashion Lunch

The 2012 Spring Racing Carnival officially began last weekend and so now’s the time that I switch StyleMelbourne from a Melbourne Spring Fashion Week focus to “what to wear to the races?” mode. A fusion of both was Flemington’s annual Spring Fashion Lunch during MSFW. Particularly special this season is

MSFW: City Square Levi’s

MSFW: Designer Series 4

Dressed from head to toe in skyblue with her label’s own red trench-coat thrown over the top, Kuwaii designer Kristy Barber looks like some kind of chic superhero as she sits front row at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Designer Series 4. I interrupt Kristy’s critique of her own portion of the event
