Where insiders will find fun at VAMFF

Yolanda Finch, Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival general manager: “The Reebok Runway will be really cool and joyous, upbeat and fun. Cleopatra’s Bling will be a personal perspective on collecting and creating at the [independent hub] Abbotsford Convent, where everything is crazy-amazing.”

Kate Gaskin, VAMFF stylist: “The colour palette for winter is fun – everyone’s using bright colours and block colouring. But the runways have also changed. It used to be that it was all models walking down the runway looking very unhappy, but now there’s a lot of diversity and inclusivity that makes you feel happy.”

Estelle Michaelides, Fashion by Appointment, a quartet of designers making bespoke fashion: “We’re looking at individual consumers and saying, ‘Let’s celebrate you. Let’s make it fun and whimsical and let’s purchase with a conscience'.”

Suzanne Browne, over 60 instagrammer (@suzanne.suzette) “VAMFF is a great opportunity for people to be inspired. I get ideas from many of the people that attend. There’s such a diversity of fashion and style. It’s wonderful to see that it’s really for any age.”
