Documenting my very first fashion festival experience last year with Nia at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) Runway 3 – a featured show by Elle Australia. Details of our outfits below.
Looking back, my sister and I had a blast at Elle Australia featured runway. My favourite collection was Dion Lee Line II, as expected.
Bianca Spender, Life with Bird, Ginger & Smart, Khalo and Manning Cartell line up were gorgeous, too. But I guess minimalism is just embedded in me. How Dion Lee Line II combined clean and simple casual wear with a twist and interesting details won me over.
What I didn’t expect was liking everything about my first show – from the designs to the music and the finale. It was spectacular. At the end, the models unexpectedly walked down the darkened runway with futuristic blue fluorescent lights. I love the Star Wars vibe. Definitely a sight to remember.

I had wanted to see GQ‘s show, too. But had no one to keep me company. Now, regrets start kicking in since catching a regular runway where I live is just impossible. Don’t even think about seeing GQ’s latest collection first hand.. I’m so looking forward to my next Fashion Week – even though I’m not sure when it’d be!
To those who are in Melbourne, lucky you..
What I love about asymmetrical skirt is that it’s interesting yet versatile at the same time. It could be easily paired up with a simple tank top and t-shirt – as long as they fit well, you’d look effortlessly stunning. And to me, its nature to highlight your best assets while hiding the more unflattering areas is a big plus.
Choosing the colour of the skirt is as important as choosing the right size. Both could be unflattering. In my case, I chose baby pink because I feel that it’d best represent my personality – adding a hint of femininity to my mostly bold outfits.
