When a runway is presented by Shop Til You Drop, you know you're bound to want to purchase everything. And that's pretty much what happened at last night's Runway 4. 

As expected, a series of entirely wearable collections was showcased to an eager crowd, whose iPhone snaps are more likely to show up on a 'to buy' list than 'to Instagram'.

Those showcasing were Alice McCall, Shakuhachi, AKIN by Ginger & Smart, Keepsake the Label and White Suede, who all largely delivered crowd-pleasers with elements of edge. 

Of note were Alice McCall's raw edging, AKIN's drop waists and that White Suede layered skirt (click to 67 for a close up). Shout out also to White Suede for featuring pieces from their collaboration with Bladder Cancer Awareness Australia
