MSFW: Peter Jackson

It was an explosion of colour at Peter Jackson’s first ever runway at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. It’s really any wonder why the collection has been entitled ‘The Tailored Escape’, having clearly drawn its inspiration on the perceptions of travel, adventure and exotic locales (not that we’re really complaining). Following their classic aesthetic of suits, […]

The Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway

They say that if you want something done, do it yourself. That’s exactly what the City of Stonnington did, along with a bunch of very prolific Australian designers and retailers in yet again another successful spring-summer runway in Melbourne’s southeast. Breaking (not away from) aside from their larger more prominent sister headline, Melbourne Spring Fashion […]

MSFW: Matcho Suba

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Melbourne designer Matcho Suba debunks that theory by way of – though he’s not old – the introduction of colour and more life to a collection that would have, had this been a year ago, been almost entirely black. This Melbourne Spring Fashion Week season […]

MSFW: Livia Arena

It’s not every day you see nearly a whole collection constructed out of what appears to be organza until you see spring-summer’s collection by Livia Arena from this season’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. Celebrating all that’s good in fish tail skirts and sheer everything, the designer’s neutral colour palette means the collection is as fittingly […]

MSFW: Arthur Galan

Arthur Galan is a name that over the past decade or so, has become synonymous with fine European-style tailoring, dresses that look as luxurious as they feel and a womanly aesthetic as ethnic as it is ‘patty-goer’. Each year the designer shoes his current season on the runway of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and each […]

MSFW: Christine

Sporting elements of what it really means and looks like to be chic, the collection of Christine for spring-summer at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week encapsulates exactly that. Through monochromatic tones of blacks, whites and greys that merged effortlessly into the more vibrant and colourful hues of summer, the collection of Christine brought elegant femininity back to the […]

MSFW: Akira

There’s a certain air of elegance and classicism that comes with Japanese design. So when a Japanese designer has the talent of the Japanese and the inventiveness of the Australian, a collection is bound to be as elegant and effortlessly chic as the work of Melbourne designer Akira Isogawa, who recently showed at Melbourne Spring […]

MSFW: Lui Hon

Melbourne designer Lui Hon is about as typically black as design would permit. His collection as it debuted at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week for spring-summer stayed true to form, though to brighten the mood, pops of varying monochromatics and textures featured prominently alongside dramatic hemlines and sleek feminine forms. Lui Hon has always stuck to […]

MSFW: Neo Dia

I remember a few years ago when Neo Dia was first introduced to Melbourne’s fashion circles. A new baby suckling of a label with its two co-designers with nothing but passion, a vision and determination to take what they knew how to craft to dizzying heights. The ‘dizzying’ elements of the heights they’ve reached might […]

MSFW: Nicola Angela

Her game is women’s occasion wear, which at first sight is noticeable with form-fitting dresses at this year’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, akin to the likes of a Kookai-esque aesthetic; until you’re knocked sideways by effortlessly flowing pieces that scream celebrations of the female form. For an awarded designer in her field, Nicola Angela‘s work […]

MSFW: Jason Grech

Jason Grech is a Melbourne based couture designer who’s crafted a name for himself in luxurious dresses, gowns and fabric-focused design for women. His debut at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week this year is a welcome addition and brings the best of what some elements of Melburnian design have to offer. For over a decade, his […]
