Stuck on which VAMFF show to attend? Add this one to your list.

Head Babes in Charge is the collaboration of three designers from labels Edgeley, Gun Shy and Doodad & Fandango.

Taking over an abandoned food court, the showcase will exhibit the labels' AW16 collections in a runway show that blurs the line between fashion and performance.

Expect lots of faux fur, radical pop art and power mesh.

The show is presented as part of the VAMFF offsite runway series, which is choc full of some other pretty killer events. You can check out the full program here.

Head Babes in Charge 2016 collection
