Today is the last day of VAMFF for 2017. As sad as it is, I had the most amazing time dressing up, meeting friends, and seeing the most incredible styles from some of Australia’s top designers!

Wearing – Cos Shirt + Earrings | The Lair Pants | Tony Bianco Heels | Naked Vice Bag + Neck scarf

Over 3 days I saw 7 runways – Next.com.au runway, Runway 3, 4 + 6, Menswear, Grand Showcase (Camilla and Marc) and Myer Runway. All were so inspiring and energetic.
One stand out was Camilla and Marc – the models walked upon a beautiful blush pink carpet and wore a stunning collection of garments. The collection featured classic shirting with a twist, florals, whites, light blue denim, stripes and gorgeous tan colours. Everything a blogger could want in their wardrobe!

Shop their collection here. I know I need the Reverse shirt!

Another one of my favourites was Anna Quan – the Shirting Queen! Her models walked for Runway 6 (sponsored by RUSSH magazine) and her shirts were styled in some inspiring ways, including a shirt as PANTS!!!

This shirt by Anna is on my birthday wishlist- those cuffs just get me

Did I also mention I got to met the lovely Anna? We had a lovely chat about Insta Stories of all things!

Overall, I had an amazing time at VAMFF. Cannot wait for next year, I may have already started planning my outfits…

Thank you to Laura for being my VAMFF bestie, Reannon Smith for capturing my style and Grace & Coy for our brief meet up


VAMFF has finished for the year, but I still can’t let it go!

Laura and I visited two VAMFF runways this year – Opening night presented by David Jones and Premium Runway 5 Presented by Shop til you Drop.

Opening Night

Opening night was presented by David Jones and included many designers such as Manning Cartell, Keepsake the Label, Lover, Alexander Wang, Scanlan Theodore, Bec & Bridge and the big finale, Ellery.

Having never been to a VAMFF Opening Night, I was memorized by the runway – beautiful designs and a vibrant atmosphere.

I didnt manage to catch any photos – so enjoy some from Fashion Journal

Third Form
Third Form has to be one of my favourite designers. This season’s collection was textured but had sleek designs. My stand-out favourite was the fluffy, off the shoulder jumper and pants/skirt combo.

Finders Keepers
Finders Keepers featured a surprising twist on the Candy Stripe. I feel this is going to be a big hit for the label, a perfect pop of colour for those dreary days.

Wild Horses
I am pretty sure it was love at first sight with this season’s Wild Horses collection. Laser cut fabrics, sheer layers and barely there straps, but in simple silhouettes. a deep, turquoise blue was the standout colour of the collection. My favourite was a simple black v neck, flared sleeve shift dress.

Keepsake the Label
Keepsake had Japanese influence with Kimono style sleeves, high necklines and printed floral patterns. A floaty pink boob tube was also featured in blush coloured tones along with a similar style in black.

White Suede
White Suede was the perfect mix of girl boss, monochrome dressing. Suits, sheer fabrics and lace were featured, along with a tough-chic aesthetic with the introduction of leather jackets/vests over laser cut skirts and floaty fabrics.

Thurley was perfection in lace, fringing and laser cut fabrics. A touch of blue and red was seen amongst the black and white. A collection that cannot be faulted with the overall stand out a beaded, sheer train dress.
