Last night was the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Opening Night- kicking off the annual celebration of fashion, design and beauty trends.
The trends fell in line with the Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion launches so far- bold prints, strong colours, structured lines, metallic and leather.
Check out the David Jones Autumn/Winter 2013 Fashion Launch pics- ideas for workwear, daywear and eveningwear.
The star of the show was British designer Mary Katrantzou, known for her phenomenal digital prints (first cab off the rank in our video line-up above). Mary is regarded as a woman who designs for women- her pieces are strong and unique. The influence of her background in architecture comes through with structured engineering and digital designs with a domestic theme this season- postage stamps, spoons, coat hangers and pencil nibs were repeated, distorted and twisted into eye-catching patterns.
