LMFF rundown:

We ran in heels, we lusted over models + exquisite clothes, we photographed babes, we left.

L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is over once again, so we finally have time to post the images we took of all the superbly dressed attendees we snapped at the heart of the action at Docklands last week.

The Opening Night parade showcased the David Jones labels, including Romance Was Born, Megan Park, Ksubi, Bianca Spender, Lover, Jack London, Camilla & Marc, Alannah Hill and Dion Lee.  Ms Dita Von Teese was ever immaculate in front row launching her Von Follies collection and Samantha Harris strutted effortlessly down the runway taking her place in the limelight in her role as Ambassador for David Jones.

And at Independent Runway Nicky D and I were pleased to discover that exposed nipples are totally back in Vogue (or should that be Yen) with sheer fabrics and soft layers appearing in several shows.  Since we are both obsessed with anything film based, the video imagery showing on the runway entrance was a show highlight for us.

Jolet’s photographic prints on sweet silhouetted pieces were delightful, but made me wanna take a European vacation, and I loved the strong styling Lui Hon featured in his show with Turban inspired hats and haunted eyes.  Ksubi went wild for animal print to a Rammstein soundtrack.

Livia Arena’s show had a beautiful Raised in a Religious Cult feel to it, always a favoured look for Nicky D and Jojo, it featured flowing caped coats in a muted palette, high pilgrim collars, the most divine shade of tangerine-peach we shall hereby refer to as TangerPeach and some great hats I die for, personally being a massive fan of Cowboy, Cordobes and especially Amish style hats ever since I saw Pete Doherty rocking one a few years ago.

And we LOVED Something Else…want that green sweater bad….
