Spring has hit Melbourne in a flurry of fashion with the start of MSFW. In addition to a range of luxe runway shows at the iconic Melbourne Town Hall, the City of Melbourne has set up City Square with its very own runway offering free shows throughout this week. On Monday we attended the David Jones Spring Racing Fashion preview, which was great fun. Today’s Ruby Assembly blog is a features several of our favorite outfits – starting with the amazing Lover pantsuit pictured above. Perfect monochromes for Oaks Day.
