The L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival has a little something for everyone. Thursday’s runway at Functions on Chapel – Famous for Fashion: The Chapel Street Edition (a project of Stonnington Fashion and Stonnington Council) celebrated the best of contemporary High Street Australian designer fare. The vibe was far from formal – instead it featured a runway divided by Mexicana-style motifs. The crowd was populated by beautiful young things in their finest fashion, ready for a runway that rocked.
To kick things off a Willy Wonka-esque stylish hipster began proceedings with a ‘Gypsy and the Cat’ style song and some suitably nifty dancing. This groover moved so fast all I could do was catch his blur, really.

Ridiculously good looking male models in Autonomy woollies.
Also on the same evening was Studio 941 and Leiela’s Awwww Che Bella event, held at Fog on Greville Street. The brief runway showcased Leiela’s drapey gowns highlighted with Ida from Studio 941’s beautiful silk scarves.
A fine night at LMFF was had by all – finished with blogger shenanigans in the Stonnington Fashion photo booth. Kawaii!
