We were down at Central Pier again for VAMFF’s Runway 6 presented by Cosmopolitan.

Each show brings a different crowd of fashionistas, and we managed to spot Nadia Bartel from Chronicles of Nadia and Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper there. It was hard not to stare.

The show featured collections from C/MEO Collective (fka Cameo), The Fifth Label, Finders Keepers, Shona Joy and Wild.Horses.

It feels like they’ve really brought us into the colder season. The usual leathers, textured knits and winter hats in monochrome were in the mix, but it was nice to see brighter colours and floral prints for Autumn/Winter. Yes to fuchsia always.

Despite the incredible structured pieces, we’re definitely seeing a return to the relaxed pant. Paired with Converse kicks makes it a thumbs up from us.

The show ended with the models walking back down the runway holding pink foam letters that spelt COSMO. Too cute.

More shows means more snaps. Keep your eyes peeled for our VAMFF updates.
