Chadstone’s AW Runway

By Eleanor Castellani. 

It’s that time of year again to put our best Louboutin forward as we gear up for fashion week, and where better to roll the dice than at the melting pot of it all – Chadstone, the fashion capital.

Milan comes to Melbourne, as a 30 meter runway stationed in the Designer Mall occupies some of this season’s most brazen, coveted ready-to-wear pieces.

Titled ‘Life with Style,’ International maison label Coach, showcased their AW14 collection alongside a stellar lineup of designers including Willow, Sass & Bide, Saba, Manning Cartell.

Styled by connoisseur Sophie Hexter, the walk was an illustrious ensemble of cutting edge sports luxe, monochrome lust-have prints, and the awaited return of the winter wardrobe.

We were graced with the appearance of Top Model finalist – Sophie Van Den Akker in the flesh, Jo Stanley, the lovely lasses from How Two Live.

Barcelona meets haute couture, as we had Elektra Live open the show with a five-piece orchestra, featuring Sally Cooper. Liberation for both the eyes and ears, who needs Cafe Del Mar?

A wondrous extravaganza of satin, mink, and Lagerfield nostalgia harnessed by a glass or two, thanks to the folks at Pommery Champagne Bar. We needed the edge taken off.
