Going backstage at any fashion show can be more exciting than watching the runway shows and presentations. In September I hung out behind the scenes at Melbourne Fashion Week Plus and witnessed first-hand how many people, hours, and stores of energy it takes to pull together a fashion event.
As you can imagine, A ton of primping goes into the looks that grace the runway shows, which can last as little as ten minutes.
From the models, the designers, the venue planning the makeup to the music and event, putting together the Melbourne Fashion Week Plus requires incredible coordination. Well done to the organisers for putting together such a fabulous event.
The models were a mixture of professional models and “street” models – bloggers and everyday people that wanted to take part in the show, which was great as it gave the show much diversity and excitement as some of the girls were walking for the first time ever.
LYN – AL was a stand out designer in the show. Her designs are based on Fasheaming, meaning fashion dreaming. Dreaming for Aboriginal people is a very spiritual thing. Lyn-Al’s pieces connect with the spirit behind the designs. Each piece was handpainted onto silk making each piece a unique artistic original.
It takes an army of HUMA behind the scenes to bring the vision to life. This is only a small portion of the Iridis Cosmetics team! (who did a phenomenal job and were sponsors of the event)
The final runway was full of tailoring, colour and fun. Featured designers: Sprinkle Emporium, Juicy Lucy Plus, Joolz Fashion, Miss Scarlett did it, SONSEE Woman, Active Truth, Beyond the Sea Swimwear
