Once again, the Student Runways of MFW proved to be the ultimate display of emerging designer talent.

The second Student Runway showcased top students' designs from Whitehouse Institute of Design, Holmesglen Institute, Fashion Masters, Kangan Institute and Box Hill Institute.

It also unveiled the winner of the 2017 Student Designer Award, Tess Whitfort from Box Hill Institute.

Prepare to feel intimidated by the sheer amount of talent that went down this year’s runway.
