Falling head over heels for VAMFF after viewing the Gala Runway, my best girlfriend and I scurried on back for Night Two, Premium Runway 1. The atmosphere was buzzing, the gin and espresso martinis were flowing, and the camera shutters were capturing what seemed like a million photos an hour.
VAMFF really is a festival, as it brings together an entire array of unique styles, with the effect of every fashion diehard’s pilgrimage to The Exhibition Building a dazzling, colourful coagulation of style.
On the runway were Scanlan Theodore, Strateas Carlucci, Bassike, Kitx, Albus Lumen, Bianca Spender and Christopher Esber. With the finale set to Madonna’s vogue, this runway was all about girl power – and I adored the ‘vogue’ headpieces worn by the models walking the finale.
