Just as Paris Fashion Week wraps up for the season, the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival enters the scene with a bang, full steam ahead.
Saturday was opening night for this year's VAMFF, presented by David Jones and supported by Vogue Australia. For those who weren't there, you missed out big time. Thankfully, we've put together a full rundown of the show for you, including exclusive backstage content, right here on FJ.
The faces of David Jones, Jessica Gomes and Montana Cox, set the ball rolling for the night, each donning an African-inspired frock by Sydney-based kaftan queen Camilla Franks.
Together, the Australian beauties together also brought the ceremony to a chic close with a pair of high-necked maxis from Scanlan & Theodore.
For the first time, the retail giant also featured a range of international designers on its runway, a sure sign of Australia advancing its global fashion offering.
Up next are the Premium Runways, showing all this week starting with tonight’s Premium Runway 1 presented by Miss Vogue. With an opening event like Saturday’s, the Fashion Festival is off to a promising start.
