WHAT A WEEK! #VAMFF Fashion Week has well and truly taken off, with only a couple of days remaining, I thought I best drop a few lines over here to keep you all sufficiently informed. Between more outfit changes, more bubblies & more canapé-sized mushroom risotto meals in the last two days than I’ve experienced in my entire life, it’s no surprise that the only things keeping me remotely sane are the stunningly flawless outfits making their way through the runway and onto the streets. All the late nights, early mornings, emergency shopping escapades, and milk-less coffee moments are so worth it for that designer fash-un fix. Below I’ve included some details of the runway shows I’ve seen so far, as well as what I wore (because, Melbourne. Street. Style) so have a little scroll, and let me know which outfit you preferred below! For real-time runway footage head to my INSTAGRAM or @WestfieldDoncaster Instagram page (as last night I took over their account!)
Premium Runway 5 presented by Harper’s BAZAAR was easily one of the best shows I’ve seen to date. With collections from the likes of Carla Zampatti and Alex Perry, effortlessly gracing the runway it was difficult to be anything but impressed. Zampatti played with the draped-70’s trend, whilst Perry kept to monochromatic tones, using laced texture and pale pink accents to create a point of difference.

Josh Goot Grand Showcase* – featuring statement prints, with tailored black and white, Goot, as always reminded us how to be effortlessly, effortless at all points in time. Reiterating how less is more and that fashion need not always be overstated, to be a statement.

National Graduate Showcase – Never have I seen such striking, bold colour take over a runway. Each collection by these talented up and coming designers told a story, of what they’d seen, what they’d lived through, but mainly what had inspired them.
