Are you ready to runway?

Fashion lovers, after a year of virtual runway shows and cancelled catwalks, isn’t it just the greatest thing to see long limbs strutting their stuff again?

ICYMI, Melbourne Fashion Festival kicked off earlier this month with all things fash taking over the streets, our Insta feeds and of course, runways all around our southern sisters most iconic city locations. And this year was a particularly special one, with MFF turning the big 2-5. Happy Birthday, hun!

Curated for the everyday fashion follower, this year’s MFF shows have us wagging our tongues for new threads and funky ‘fits (bye-bye, bank balance!) presented to us from some of the most unique catwalk locations we’ve seen yet! (FYI, Runway 5 filmed at Australia’s first surf park takes the cake! Watch it (and love it!) in full here).

From the incredible Gala Runway David Jones show, which included high-end street style from international designers Balmain, Isabel Marant, Rotate, as well as homegrown heroes including Aje, Camilla & Marc, Bassike, to the all-Aussie show held inside the Melbourne State Library featuring some local faves like Lee Mathews and Scanlan Theodore, there were a ton of top fashion moments from MFF!

Last (but certainly not least!), our eyes were drawn to the beauty that was Runway 3, where ethereal bridal and couture from Paolo Sebastian, Toni Maticevski and Steven Khalil floated through the Redwood Forest. Take our word for it, you have to see it to believe it! See the dreamy show in full here.

So chicks, whether you’re head over heels for Aussie street style, feel the need to fulfil your farm-life fantasies in Cottagecore picks, or just froth a bit of high-end runway fashion, one thing’s for sure: 2021 is lookin’ pretty damn stylish!
