Was I in Carnaby St in the swinging 60â€™s? Oh no, just the opening runway show at L’oreal’s Melbourne Fashion Festival.
You could forgive me for mistaking the time and place though, the parade music was provided by The Beatles; â€˜She Loves Youâ€™ being the opening song. With Toni Maticevskiâ€™s collection coming out to the rarefied strains of â€˜Eleanor Rigbyâ€™.
The mod theme seemed to run quite rampant through the group show, with all the designers, Marnie Skillings, Camilla and Marc, Kirrily Johnston, and Alice McCall, seemingly inspired by the trend this winter. Looks like weâ€™re suppose to be wearing tunics and tights predominantly in shades of grey and black, with occasional splashes of colour to break it up this winter. With wool, silks and and bauble-buttoned overcoats being key featureâ€™s of the season.
What was quite interesting to note was that Tina Kalivas brought out her models in red conical headpieces, reminiscent of Courreges or more aptly, Biba.[by Effie Lisgaras]
