3 Questions with: Marianne at Melbourne Runway

Featuring some of SASSYBELLA.com’s favourite bloggers / blogs on the web.

Last week we asked three questions to Andy at Denimology, this week we have a chat to Marianne at Melbourne Runway.

– What was your inspiration for Melbourne Runway?
I lived in Europe for about a year and I became somewhat nostalgic for Melbourne’s sense of style. I had seen other Australian street style photos but I found that they always seemed to capture the more overt and extravagant/kooky side of fashion. With Melbourne Runway, I wanted to capture the ‘quiet’ moments of fashion brilliance.

– What is your favourite thing about Melbourne fashion?
I really admire the youth in Melbourne. I’m often astounded at their level of finesse and their considered approach to fashion. I love that in Melbourne you really have the liberty to wear whatever you want, even though many people do play it safe. I think there’s room for more indulgence! Also, I love that we can really get down and dirty with ‘winter’ wear.

– What is your favourite trend of the upcoming season?
For A/W 2007, it’s all about beautiful jackets. My pick is a Balenciaga inspired peaked/rounded blazer. I’ll also continue Spring/Summer’s trend with the shorter hemline with sweaters, cardi’s and shirt tunics (as dresses) with leggings. A trend that I’d love to adopt more of is the play with fabrications… neoprene, coated materials etc. have this delicious liquid appeal.
