The Melbourne Fashion Week student collections easily stole the (runway) show, simultaneously presenting the most innovative, exciting and down-right ridiculous looks of the week. There was everything from oversized knitted oven gloves, to fake mobile phone accessories, to trolleys overflowing with yellow rubber gloves. There was never a dull moment. The collection that send models down the runway with concrete slabs for handbags will forever be the most memorable moment from fashion week for me.
Make sure to checkout my highlights on Instagram (thegirlwholivedforclothes), for a full recap of the most exciting runway moments.
Some of the highlights…
Bird meets BDSM meets mummy chic.
Why have skin when you can have scales.
In the age of mobile phone separation anxiety becoming a likely phenomenon, now wear your phone as an accessory.
The largest hat in the world that provides the least sun protection ever.
Quirky handbags were all the rage. Made of shells, velvet and ones large enough for a high-maintenance gal going on a one night trip away.
Highly flammable oven gloves, not for real-life use.
Serving you Big Bird meets fashion-forward Yeti realness…
And some other favourites!
Student collections from Box Hill Institute, Holmesglen Institute, Kangan Institute, The Master’s Institute for Creative Education, RMIT University and Whitehouse Institute of Design.
