Spring Fashion Week

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
― Coco Chanel

Everything good must come to an end…

After a week of non stop, jam-packed fun with activities and Melbourne infamous four season in a day weather, at the final day of MSFW it was welcomes with sunshine and a runway collaborated with happy summer pieces from Decjuba, Seed and French Connection.

The final runway at MSFW@City Square presented a playful mixture of men’s and women’s wear, With the usual pastel colours illuminating the runway in a closing show which felt both celebratory and bittersweet.

I felt that MSFW couldn’t have ended on a better note, highlighting the events main pieces and field as well as finishing the event off peacefully and making me want to go to a French connection store that very second!
