L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival: Offsite Runway + Fashion Friday






Hands down, my favourite LMFF runway show was the last show I saw - the Offsite Runway held at Penthouse Mouse on closing night. Penthouse Mouse turned an unused wharf shed at Docklands into an event space to showcase independent Australian designers. This is also where people came to celebrate the final evening with live music and drinks from the temporary setup.






Walking the length of the wharf to get to the shed and then finding it full of people, music, fashion it felt as though I had been invited to a secret party. For a split second I almost felt 'cool'. The runway setup was amazing - snow covered the floor of the room and fell from the ceiling during the show and overturned buckets were used as seating.

Designers featured included:

Alexi Freeman
Jolet
Leonard Street
Livia Arena
One Fell Swoop
Metias

One Fell Swoop opened the show with a beautiful neutral collection of soft flowing, feminine dresses. The combination of midnight blue and black and white stripes as seen in Alexi Freeman's collection made me weak at the knees and I am still coveting the leggings with cutouts all the way down the leg from Livia Arena.



On a non-fashion related note, I want the soundtrack to the show. See a snippet of the opening here (and please excuse the shakiness and the heads.. oh dear).
