VAMFF 2018

From fashion to dust storm; the week of the Melbourne Fashion Festival presented an interested contrast, dashing to runway shows and then a music festival in the middle of the Australian bush. Here’s a quick recap of my favourite show from VAMFF (Runway 5,  presented by InStyle), before I swapped fluffy bags and slicked hair for mermaid crowns and glitter.

My favourite moment was the finale, where models emerged carrying parasols filled with baby’s breathe. If only I’d be able to pinch one post-show, this would have been the ultimate festival accompaniment. It’s really quite rude they didn’t give me one actually…

Kate Sylvester was a highlight; velvets, leathers and (shock-horror for Melbourne) a lot of colour. There’s definitely something innately cool about pastel leather. Unfortunately, it appeared as though all the hats they’d made were too big and had to be secured onto the models heads with large stretches of tule fabric. Or perhaps the runway was very windy that day. Convenient for a windy day, not so convenient for life.

Thurley was surprisingly…very Thurley – I’d probably need a microscope to tell the difference between every collection Thurley has ever made.

Many of the styled looks in this runway appeared to be rather confused about whether they were heading to a wedding, the office or a festival – but really, why should anyone have to make that choice? I certainly don’t!

Oh, and of course almost every look on the runway was paired with Polly Lissiman sunglasses – because if your runway show didn’t use Polly Lissiman sunnies, did it even really happen…?
