Future Casual

Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life

There's a wild side to fashion week, when fashion students from around Australia get to let their creative hair down and show their graduating collections in front of Melbourne's style elite. While most of the clothes shown during the VAMFF graduate parade will never see the light of day on a general retail floor there's always the chance that a young designer may catch the eye of an editor or artist who will champion their designs. 





Melbourne had turned up the heat on the day of the parade and being a Sunday (and straight after work) I wanted to keep things relaxed as much as I could. I ended up throwing on a pair of New Balance sneakers with my Fortis Green socks, slipped into a pair of made to measure chinos and finished off the look with a really casual jacket.Feeling quite tired from work I was glad to be able to hide my eyes behind a pair of sunglasses.





I was running slightly behind schedule but managed to get a few quick snaps taken as I made my way up the entrance ramp. Then it was time to grab a drink and watch the always inspiring student runway.
