My very favourite bit of the melbourne spring fashion week
is the student showing.
These are the clever fashion design students at RMIT,
who are busily completing their 4th year.
(They are also the people who compete in the floral fashion event
at the Garden Festival.)
And amongst the many wonderful outfits which sauntered down the catwalk last night,
it was these floral inspired whimsical numbers
which grabbed my attention.
They are by Lauren Slaviero,
and I rather suspect we will be seeing a bit more of her work.
No doubt she will be snapped up by somebody with a fine eye.
How wonderful are the blue trimmed shoes in the lower right?
The white-caped jump-suit by Natasha Hancock is dreamily elegant,
and the black and orange gown by Anastasia McNamara is also a standout.
I would wear both outfits in a flash,
but Lauren's floral puff creations would look fantastic on someone younger than I.
It's always so encouraging to see the fresh ideas
of young minds.
