Aussie, Aussie, Aussie? Oi, oi, oi! Gosh – don’t we love our sports in Melbourne? It appears we are increasingly loving our sports when it comes to fashion too, as last night’s Runway 5 at VAMFF showed. Easy-wearing, sports-style pieces from popular brands such as Cameo the label and Finders Keepers raced down the runway, in shades of pleather (ain’t no shame) and muted tropical prints. I myself touted Australian style with my vintage printed cotton gown and beautiful hand-painted ceramic eucalypt badge from label Ossiteralia. More to come on Ossiteralia in future posts, lovers of Australian flora!


Fine to see you: lots of people-spotting and chance encounters with colleagues like Lisa of Couturing (right) in Maticevski.


The V.I.P. suite was a neat place to enjoy a Pommery or two prior to the parade. Hey Mr DJ.


Side-boob alert! From Finders Keepers the label.
