The place to be.

Last night’s GQ Runway saw some of Australia’s finest menswear presented to a full house at the Royal Exhibition Building. We went backstage to get better acquainted will all the collections. 

Dom Bagnato, M.J. Bale, Arthur Galan AG, Calibre, Aquila and Jack London showed they’re masters of tailoring and sharp lines, while Autonomy added refined, casual dressing to the mix.

The standout of the night was AMXANDER. The label brought something different, with its unconventional cuts the hero of the show.
