Melbourne Fashion Week resumed with Premium Runway Four last night, showcasing designers armed with some of the industry's most loyal followings.

The show jumped straight into Spring Racing season, previewing a collection of Spring/Summer 17 looks over a suitably-floral runway.

The lineup included fashion heavyweights Carla Zampatti, Megan Park, Rachel Gilbert, Rebecca Vallance, Thurley and Yeojin Bae.

Known for their signature artistry, the labels did not disappoint. Intricate floral detailing met mesh, details were exaggerated and embroidery was ultimately king.

The one where I outfit repeated.
The one where street style steps up.
The one where I tried (and failed) to look effortlessly cool.
Perfect for a blossoming spring afternoon.
They aren't holding anything back...
Inspired by warmth, skin, masking layers and woven textures.
All summer vibes and bangers.
Pop it in your basket ASAP before anxiety takes hold.
On a side note, go out and by yourself a wide belt, stat.
Melbourne Fashion Festival off to a fiery start.
A humbling first collection following the designer's death.
It's been a pretty spectacular year on the catwalk.
A runway of graduate proportions.
