Shiny Pastels and Tough Feminine from Runway Two at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014

Runway Two of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014 took place at Melbourne Town Hall last night, with contemporary Spring 2014 looks showcased by some of Australia’s best designers.

Brands like Willow looked to soft pastels, as well as Alice McCall which opted for a quirkier take with shiny mints, peaches and sky-blues. Other designers, like Kahlo, stuck to a mainly monochromatic palette, which drew focus to its other notable features. For Carly Hunter it was sculptural shapes, and for LUI HON it was tailoring and plunging necklines.

A matchy-matchy perforated neon-pink ensemble by LIFEwithBIRD was a show-stopper, and YB J’AIME toughened up otherwise-feminine pieces with a ripped off-the-shoulder and collared red-lace dress.

Neo Dia worked sheer and arty prints, and Manning Cartell brought back the strong leathers and cut-out detailing which was so highly praised at the David Jones Spring 2014 launch.
