HOT: Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, Designer Series Show 2, Melbourne Town Hall, Swanston St, Melbourne

You’d be forgiven for not realising with this cold and rain that it’s actually Spring in Melbourne from today.

With Spring comes Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, the fashion festival that’s the baby of the bigger Loreal Melbourne Fashion Week in March.

I was lucky enough to be invited to watch the collections being shown in the Designer Series runway shows at Melbourne Town Hall. For what could be more hotter in Melbourne than fashion?

Unfortunately I missed Show 1 so my coverage starts with Show 2, featuring the luxury fabrics and embellished threads of AG Arthur Galan, Akira, Aurelio Costarella, Christine, Collette Dinnigan, Gwendolynne, Lisa Ho, Megan Park, Thurley and Yeojin Bae.

In general, I loved this show – the elegance, the grace, the Veronica Lake curls and glamorous goddess gowns skimming wasp waists and all that chiffon floating around long legs. If only I had more opportunities to wear beaded gowns in my life! Or a corseted bodice. Or be so careless with my laundry and my finances as to have everything made in silk.

For those who couldn’t make it to the show I tried to take as many photos as I could of the garments – so here’s a selection of my favourite images plus a full slideshow for you.

  1. How cool that you got to go to Fashion Week – amazing! The joys of having a general blog and not just a food blog.
