Underground vibes at MFW Menswear

Keeping it fresh! This year’s Garage Menswear show took us under the Town Hall at Melbourne Fashion Week. The rustic venue gave way for an edgy showcase of the new season looks. Keeping with the diversity theme of this year’s event there were several female models rockin’ the clothing on the runway and hey this makes sense as I’ve had plenty of my girlfriends raid my wardrobe!

Let’s talk trends. The bum bag is having a moment and it’s certainly a handy accessory for us mobile phone lovers. No hanging onto a bag means those hands are free to organise that next Tinder date on the run. But with the bum bag, do not wear around the waist, wear it on the diagonal across the chest and you’ll be on point. Military hardware made for masculine details and I’ll be trying out this one myself. Also, it looks like the cool mix of a suit teamed with sneakers is here to stay, as it just looks so goddam stylish and I’m sure we can all agree is really comfortable.

Let’s take a look at the action…

Melbourne Fashion Week fun has begun!

The fun is underway at Melbourne Fashion Week 2017. It’s a fabulous showcase of the coming trends and styles for the spring/summer fashion season. This year there is a strong emphasis on diversity which is great to see, so far I’ve seen a gay wedding on the runway and female models in the menswear show. MFW 2017 boasts a massive line-up  with over 150 events across the city – including Premium Runways with the country’s leading designers, industry workshops, exhibitions, parties, films, music, and free fashion experiences. There is something for everyone!

The hub is Melbourne Town Hall and a great place to go celeb and street style spotting plus they feature live music and DJ sets. We’re only half-way through so get amongst it – link to schedule and buy tickets at bottom of post.

Follow me on my social channels and stay tuned for trend reports. See you on the runway.

Some of my opening night highlights…

Spectacular: The David Jones runway on Little Bourke Street really does stop traffic! This view from the top was snapped by one of my peeps on scene, Lilli Anak.
