If you were in Melbourne last week surely you would of attended at least one show at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. I was lucky enough to help backstage, get the feel of the garment, first look at the hair and make up and experience the adrenaline pumping back of house action. Now that the week is over I thought I would share a mini recap of some of my favourite looks from the festival. This year's event showcased some of Australia's most prominent designers such as Camilla, Kahlo, Michael Lo Sordo, Camilla and Marc, Alpha60 amongst many more and a range of themes from tribal to classy to hipster - evidently extending its appeal to the diverse Australian fashion consumers.
