We were hoping to be impressed by last night's Runway 3 presented by Elle, and boy, we sure were.
Jaws dropped as a refined, elegant yet entirely modern runway was showcased, flaunting each designer's skillful eye for cut and precision of line.
Styles were feminine and understated and palettes restrained, with designers largely opting for black and white. Instead, they played with texture and fabric, meaning we really, really wanted to reach out and feel the models (and yes we know how weird that sounds).
Designers showcased included Manning Cartell, Bianca Spender, Ginger & Smart, KAHLO and LIFEwithBIRD, but it was once again Dion Lee who stole the show, with Line II proving elegant even when paired with sneakers.
