VAMFF 2018 GQ AUSTRALIA Menswear Backstage

GQ Australia menswear was by far my favourite show to end VAMFF. It was refreshing to see a diverse range of Australian talent and streetwear inspired apparel. It wasn’t the typical tailored suit with a tie, but a bolder look into menswear fashion such as chunky knits, layering of pieces and brighter colours. My stand-out piece was the all red velvet sports inspired ensemble, and that killer long red coat with layered with a white shirt and roll-necked knit. It was also exciting to see P.E Nation debuting their mens streetwear collection on the runway!

The designer line-up were:

  • Autonomy
  • Bassike
  • Chris Ran Lin
  • Jac+ Jack
  • Jack London
  • P.E NATION
  • Strateas Carlucci

VAMFF 2018 Ginger and Smart backstage highlights

Ginger & Smart showcased its stunning AW18 collection at VAMFF 2018, and I was really fortunate to go behind the scenes to capture my desirable looks as well as experiencing the runway show thanks to AMPR. The show was presented by Marie Claire and supported by Priceline Pharmacy and it was captivating display of femininity, shimmer and a touch of confidence cool.

VAMFF 2018 Christian Kimber AW18 Menswear Street Style

What I appreciate most about capturing street style at Christian Kimber presentations, is the diverse range of refreshingly modern take on Australian men’s style. Most of the guests that show up seem to have a very laid back and minimalistic approach to styling where comfort and high quality craftsmanship is a priority. Today was no different; and here are the highlights shot outside Bang and Olufsen venue on 33 Russell Street. Can you spot any of Christian Kimber footwear and accessories?

VAMFF 2018 ELLE Australia runway

The 2018 ELLE Australia runway on day 2 at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival was a beautiful spectacle of pastel sheers, pattern on pattern suits, puffy and one armed sleeves, well tailored denim dresses; and my absolute favourite look was the oversized deep fuschia pink coat with light grey wide-legged pants by Anna Quan. Who would have thought of that colour combination!

The line up for this runway were Acler, Anna Quan, Arnsdorf, BY JOHNNY., C/MEO Collective, Hansel and Gretel and Morrison; and earrings by KITTE.
