When it comes to fashion in Australia, Melbourne is known as it’s capital. With Winter coming to an end, so is its fashion. Melbourne Spring Fashion Week featured some of the latest trends for this season. Bright colours, bold patterns and impeccable designs had eyes glued to the catwalk as every new trend was flaunted.

Spring Fashion Week started on August 31st, with the city of Melbourne draped in all things style. Bourke Street Mall had photo booths, style stalls and photographers outside nearly every store, capturing the fashion of passers by. The city was truly ready for the show’s each night.

Every night for Spring Fashion Week, different styles of clothes were paraded down the catwalk, snapped up by fashion bloggers, photographers, stylists and the biggest names in the Australian fashion industry.

The contemporary show on September 2nd was held at Melbourne Town Hall. Every guest at the show was dressed to the nines as they found their seats. A winged dancer painted white posed in the centre of the catwalk, as curious watchers waited for the show to begin.

The designers of the contemporary show included: Manning Cartell, Livia Arena, LIFEwithBIRD, NEODIA, One Fell Swoop and Yeojin Bae. The makeup for the evening was styled my Mecca Cosmetica and the models hair was styled by Kevin.Murphy.

Every designer had their own coloured backdrop; splashes of golds, pinks and blues were lit across the runway as the models strutted the collections of the designers. The winged dancer changed his position to signal the next collection.

The audience were in awe of the pieces they saw. When one collection was done, it was only a few seconds before the atmosphere would change and the next collection would be shown.

Some of the pieces in the show had quite interesting headpieces to add to their clothing, giving off cool and modern vibes to the audience, setting them apart from the rest.

Lucky audience members who paid a little extra for their tickets were seated in the middle of the runway, taking in every detail as they snapped up each piece on their phones.

The models were styled to reflect the theme of the show. Their hair was slicked back into a neat, long ponytail, and their makeup was kept simple and elegant. Every model looked as contemporary as the clothes they were modelling.

The audience, following the show, had nothing but high praise for the collections by the designers. “I loved the pieces by Yeojin Bae” says Anastasia, of Canterbury.

A series of dresses, jumpsuits, suits and skirts were presented at the show. A selection of whites, blacks, pinks, yellows and blues were the colours of choice for each designer and their collection.

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week gave the new season a hit of colour and sophistication. Minimalistic effort but maximum style and ethereal beauty was dripping from every designer throughout the week.
