Runway Trend Setters

It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.

Flashing cameras, beautiful people and an abundance of style. I love attending fashion events and always enjoy seeing the new season trends coming down the runway.
There's a lot of hype around the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (formally LMFF); with big name Aussie labels showcasing their current collections - It's the country's largest retail fashion event and the highlight of the year for many stylish Melbournians.



Personally I prefer the clothing on display at the graduates collection. Featuring the work of recent fashion school graduates, the student show is when things start to get a bit more creative and not so 'ready to wear'. There's also a lot more menswear on display - I think this is because young fashion designers have the freedom to invest more time and energy into developing cool stuff for men. Sadly that element seems to be missing from the mainstream shows, with womenswear still making up a majority of the parades.
