FAWN BITS: MSFW STUDENT RUNWAYS
On Sunday 1st September Melbourne Spring Fashion Week presented Student Runways 1 & 2, a showcase of talented emerging designers and fashion students from RMIT University, Melbourne School of Fashion, Whitehouse Institute of Design, Kangan Institute and Box Hill Institute. Studs and spikes, prints and metallics, tutus and body suits; here are our top picks from both Student Runway collections.
Jack Leeson, RMIT
Fun and flirty this collection by Jack Leeson added shimmer and sass to the runway. Structured skirts with fluted hemlines took on a ballerina-esque style, while a glimmering décolletage shed light on the whimsical fantasy.
Tyrone Susman, RMIT
Dressing in leather and studs never looked so alluring with these get-back ensembles designed by Tyrone Susman. With ever-so-short hemlines, skin-tight silhouettes and silver structured detailing, power dressing was taken to new heights.
Susie Paull, Melbourne School of Fashion
All white tufts of tulle floated down the runway, embodying ethereal beauty and angelic innocence. High-neckline or no-neckline, hemlines to the knee or floor, each design by Susie Paull was a majestic vision of purity.
Zorica Nikolic, Whitehouse Institute of Design
A stylishly hip collection, Zorica Nikolic’s designs were the image of nerdy chic. Slim-fitting trousers, mod minis and oversized shirts were worked back with chucky knit scarves, and a grey/beige colour palette was paired with a metallic sparkle.
Lucy Rosenberg, RMIT
Feisty and daring this collection held an out-of-this-world demeanour. With asymmetrical silhouettes, psychedelic prints and a take-no-prisoners attitude each design was fresh and fearless.
