What’s that in the air? The scent of fashion festival frenzy that’s about to hit Melbourne, that’s what! The Spirit of the Black Dress winning gowns for 2013 were showcased yesterday at the official media launch on the steps of the Melbourne Convention Centre, the venue of next week’s gala runway and film reveal. For many, The Spirit of the Black Dress runway will be the first event in the must-anticipated L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. See you there!


As always, a wide variety of designs were included in the top 10. Texture, shape, volume, drape – it was all on display. Our personal favorite? The sheer lace number on the right, featuring a heavy detailed train.
