Last night Melbourne put on quite a show – a softly sunny balmy evening under which to enjoy the launch of the 2014 Fashion Film Series as part of 2014 VAMFF’s Cultural Program. Along with team RUSSH magazine, fellow culture-vultures and industry luminaries, we enjoyed an evening of fine cider, delicious canapes and fashion film at the Emerald Peacock. Here’s the Ruby Assembly wrap:

VAMFF Director Graeme Lewsey announcing the top three fashion films of the VAMFF Fashion Film Series, as judged by an esteemed panel. They are:

  • Babylon, Velinda Wardell
  • Finnigan, Jarred Osborn and Julian Lucas
  • Sequence: Breathing, Lorin Askill
The winning submissions will screen as rotating film content at Federation Square and as preludes to feature films at ACMI and Val Morgan cinemas during March.
