VAMFF Melbourne: Elle Australia Star Wars Inspired Runway

September 16, 2016

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.

This was my very first fashion festival experience last year with Nia at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) Runway 3.

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.
