After spending six weeks in some scorching temperatures through Europe and Vietnam, it was quite a shock to come back to Melbourne’s winter! Thank goodness I had the Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway to pick me up, just two days after my return. With the Spring Racing Carnival quickly approaching, it’s nice to get inspiration for my outfits!

Stonnington Spring Fashion Runway at the Malvern Town Hall

This sold out fashion event showcased some gorgeous spring pieces from various Australian designers. We were treated to a preview of some designs from Honor Among Thieves, Jayson Brunsdon, Gorman, Nicolangela, Dom Bagnato and Trelise Cooper – just to name a few! The stylish spring racing headpieces were supplied by talented Melbourne milliners, Kerrie Stanley and Gregory Ladner. The stunning local model, Paris Roberts, was the face of the event. With those sultry eyes and bee stung lips, this model is set to go places!

Lisa Gorman & Gregory Ladner inducted into the Stonnington Fashion Hall of Fame

Lisa Gorman (of the label Gorman) and Gregory Ladner were the two chosen designers to be inducted into the Stonnington Fashion Hall of Fame this year. They join the likes of Arthur Galan, Karen Webster and Alannah Hill. Their awards were presented to them by the Mayor of Stonnington, Matthew Koce who looked like he thoroughly enjoyed the show!

The show presented a little of something for everyone. There was a nice mix of mod and funky young fashion from Gorman and Honor Among Thieves, to more sophisticated tailoring from the likes of Jayson Brunsdon, Nicolangela and Trelise Cooper. There were also a couple of exquisite bridal gowns from Connie Simonetti.

Floral suits for the boys

I’ll be interested to see how many men will be sporting floral jackets this year! It did look good on those handsome models strutting the catwalk. The standouts for me were the Green sparkling Jayson Brunsdon dress and the fuschia Trelise Cooper dress worn by Paris Roberts. Oh, and how fabulous were the sunglasses! Which styles tickle your fashion taste buds?

It was fun to go backstage to see some behind the scene frivolity. Make sure you check out some of my backstage photos as well : )
