Names on the runway below include MIM regulars Lisa Taranto, fabric-lovers Tai & Amaya, leather from Cadelle, carnival brights from Stella Blanche, Aron with some pretty petal details and new pyjama label

MSFW: City Square Runway 4 French Connection

There’s something inescapably cheery about French Connection‘s spring range on show at City Square for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. Perhaps it’s the painted-in-primary-colour palette? Or perhaps it’s that everything looks like it would be so darn easy to wear on holidays? Also, that gold dress is hot. Photography by Edy Lianto

MSFW: Designer Series 3

Limedrop’s Clea Garrick and Nathan Price are a walking testament to their own label. At Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s Designer Series 3 last night Clea is adorned in a floral tiara as has become her custom (she was doing it way before Lana Del Rey made it a fad) while Nathan is

MSFW: Collection 3056

Breaking a little with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week tradition, a collective of designers from Brunswick (postcode 3056, thus the event’s title) took to the runway earlier this week. Ella, A Name is a Label, Jack of Diamonds, Lhords, Hand Hook Yarn, Anna Cat, New Model Beauty Queen and Neisha’s group

MSFW: French Fashion Illustrations

Jacques Heim was a Parisian designer active from the 1930’s to 60’s and was also one-time president of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. That was until he controversially broke with regulation and released collection photographs early (sparking the race-to-first media riot we still have in the industry today). His

MSFW: Tomorrow’s Heroes

I am officially going to go broke this season. Of all the runways so far at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week I find this line-up the most alluring in terms of want-to-wear-ability. Tomorrow’s Heroes is dedicated to emerging and perhaps slightly under the radar (for now) labels. Stylist Connel Chiang has

MSFW: RMIT Student Runway

Stylist Virginia Dowzer was charged with the epic task of producing the 30-strong designer student runway show at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week last night. It’s a role she relishes; “I just adore it, it’s my favourite show and it just landed in my lap. I’m afraid one day they will

MSFW: Designer Series 2

Yeojin Bae has been tailed by a Korean film crew all day at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. They are filming her for an upcoming documentary. While she yearns to “change into her undies and get cosy on the couch” it doesn’t show. The designer bubbles excitedly about her many projects;

MSFW: City Square Runway 2 Wittner

Foot fetishists and Imelda Marcos wannabes rejoice. Wittner presented a catwalk show at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week devoted solely (ha!) to the mighty shoe. Celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, models literally put on their dancing shoes. Wittner have also commissioned a “centenary collection” of strappy stilettos featuring in this show and an

MSFW: City Square Runway 3 Review

Review has fully embraced one of Spring’s major trends – pastels – and reinforced the theme’s sweet as pie image with a sprinkling of pleats, bows and lace overlays. This season, I feel as if Review has found a happy medium in the space between fellow feminine labels Forever New
