VAMFF 2015: StageLabel RUNWAY 2015


VAMFF kicked off in style this week with the highly anticipated StageLabel cultural runway show 2015, in which designers celebrated their individual style and made their unique ‘fashion fingerprint’ in the industry. Held at the beautiful waterfront docklands the event showcased eight incredibly individual and talented emerging designers from across the globe.

The spacious warehouse swiftly began to thicken up with fashion savvy associates, sipping on flutes of champagne and nibbling on appetisers; the room seething with anticipation for the upcoming showcase. Each designer revealed four or more of their designs, ranging from classic clean silhouettes to fun and gregarious garments.  Here are my fashion choices of the night.
