VAMFF 2015 – Runway 5 presented by Harper’s Bazaar

11080937_781239318628677_7019404976678821075_nThis exceptional show featured the following designers: Carla Zampatti (celebrating 50 years in the industry), Alex Perry, Martin Grant, Yeojin Bae and Christopher Esber. Not only was this show the only one I chose to attend to this year (mainly due to an early start time and being 4 months pregnant), but these designers are always a highlight of the festival. Plus, it marked my eleventh year of attending and covering Melbourne fashion weeks, ever since my inception when I was 21 and writing for Fashion Journal, sitting front row and being mesmerised by all I saw, pen in hand, jotting it all down like a mad woman, keen to capture the essence of the moveable feast of fashion before me. How times have changed – now it’s all smart phones and hashtags – which I’ll admit, I am beginning to enjoy, and I hope you enjoy these images captured by me, at VAMFF 2015.
