During L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, there is plenty to do and see around the city. One of my favourite things to do is check out the fashion films showing at ACMI for the Deeper In Vogue series as part of LMFF. During this year’s festival there’s a great range of films to see. As an added bonus, screening before each movie will be a short film from finalists in the 2013 LMFF Fashion Film Series.


Dressed for Summer 2013 Habillé(e)s pour l’été 2013

Mademoiselle Agnès and Loïc Prigent present a tongue in cheek look at the world of fashion going behind the scenes at all the major shows. Highlights include Raf Simons amazing flower walls for the Dior runway and Hedi Slimane’s first collection for Yves Saint Laurent. A must for watch not just for fashion lovers, but those who want a laugh.
