MSFW 13 Menswear Mix Up

Menswear hasn't received too much attention during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week in the past but this year, we saw the inaugural MR MSFW Event take place, putting the focus back on all things masculine. The Designer and Emerging runways also saw a series of looks for men, with the student parades especially showcasing the avant garde.




The MR Event program saw the likes of Oscar Hunt & Don Bagnato showcasing classic tailoring and construction. A workshop hosted by Luc Weismen  from men's style blog D'Marge brought together Julian Lichtenstein (Oscar Hunt), Doen St Mor (Mor Cosmetics/Aquila) and Christian Kimber (Christian Kimber Footwear) to discuss style, tips, tailoring and trends for men. 

The designer parades featured menswear from local designers including Autonomy, Jack London, Calibre & Saxony. These labels seem more focused on a younger, fashion focussed man, which may not be my thing, but are a great little niche in the market for those beginning to explore the world of menswear & the basics of tailoring.

In years to come, I really hope to see more people and brands involved. Let's continue to see the menswear scene in Melbourne grow and hopefully one day we may even equal womenswear on the runways.
