Vogue, also known as the Bible of fashion. And so, of course, the Vogue runway show at VAMFF was always going to be on point.
Featuring established Australian designers such as Camilla and Marc and Scanlan Theodore, the collections on the Vogue runway ranged from neutral, relaxed tailoring (so Melbourne) to bold, colourful prints (so Australia) and haute couture (so Vogue).
My favourite moment had to be the J’Aton Couture finale; a most incredible bridal gown floating along the runway, the model ghost-like against the sunlight that streamed through the window of the Royal Exhibition Building. For that return walk, her face was cast in shadow, her veil an eerie halo of light, her gown a gothic silhouette. That closing look was full-on drama.
As if we’d expect any less of the world’s most famous fashion magazine.
