The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival is done and dusted, and the fashion world screams in awe of the new trendy gear headed for Winter. If you’ve always concealed a love for dramatic costuming, now is your time with some off-shoulder tops and lust velvet gowns. There are always the purists out there who only wear white and black, and that’s groovy too. Want our opinion? Don’t be afraid to step out of the norm – Australian winter is seriously on trend.
Show Some Shoulder
Getting dressed in winter can be confusing – it’s always either way too hot or way too cold. But you haven’t heard the latest; off-the-shoulder blouses and dresses are still in for the cool season. Paired with a leather skirt, you can make the dramatic flair you crave. Christopher Esber, we salute your creative process.
Reds are Always Bold
Welcome to a bright and bold vision; a vision of red. Even a lady in red. It wasn’t hard to spot the shade floating down the catwalk, and with Morrison pulling out all the fashion stops, crimson has never been such a powerful move when it comes to tonal styling.
Velvet is ReVAMPED
Exhibit A; the velvet phase. As the antique world is revamped by new schemes of colour and texture, it seems the 90s trend has made a definitive comeback, dominating runways from Paris to Melbourne. If you want to add a little grunge to this slip dress, accessorise with chokers or a chic blouse for fall.
