The stunning central CBD landmark of the Melbourne Town Hall was the destination for the aptly named Town Hall Runway shows during M/FW. Runway 7 was the second last show and featured the creme de la creme of Australian fashion. Stalwarts in the fashion industry, but also the ones who you just know are going to deliver cutting-edge, wow-worthy gowns and suits; with impeccable detailing, frothy fabrics and eye-popping colours.

Dom Bagnato, a label and man we have had the pleasure of knowing for many years, did not disappoint with next-level suave suits, featuring 3-piece suits layered with double breasted jackets and waistcoats, striking fabrics and sophisticated colours. It was all about tailoring to the modern man; a nod to classic dressing with oodles of handsome details.

Another fan favourite of ours, the beautiful and talented Jason Grech, was the envy of the catwalk. His gowns, in a kaleidoscope of colours, patterns, prints and textures, were nothing short of show-stopping. From buttery metallics, to frothy tulle, Jason’s ball gowns featured his Grech monogram coupled with beautiful Australian native flora, highlighting in the most exquisite way, his Maltese and Australian heritage which is a powerful inspiration for him.

Nicola Finetti, another of our wonderful favourites from over the years, was all about ‘the party’ – with billowing sleeves, popping pastels, gnarly neons with unique hemline and decolletage details that shouted both bold strength and soft femininity in one breath. We loved the playful socks with closed-toe Mary Janes too.

Carla Zampatti showcased a broad collection that covered flowing floral gowns, daffodil yellow power jackets and floor length one-sleeved sequin gowns to herald the approaching party season.
