Australia:RMIT’s future faces of fashion at MSFW runway


Buttons representing polka dots, Peruvian-inspired colour schemes and wearable chic will grace the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week runway in the RMIT University final-year Bachelor of Design (Fashion) student show this Saturday.

The two student shows, titled Twenty-Eight, will be held at Melbourne Town Hall on Saturday, 5 September. The title comes from the number of students whose work will be featured.

Fourth-year Fashion Co-ordinator Denise Sprynskyj, from the School of Architecture and Design, said the fashion faithful would see work ranging from sustainable swimwear and women’s wear to menswear and children’s wear.

“Students this year have been inspired by the human body, the application of millinery techniques to cloth, the work of international artists, and global events like the financial crisis,” she said.

The RMIT Student Fashion show has become a Melbourne Spring Fashion Week tradition for the closing weekend of the festival.

When: Saturday, 5 September, 6.30pm and 9pm
