At MFW Runway Two, some of Australia’s most loved names in fashion took to the runway, showcasing shared trends of relaxed suiting, playful prints, a little nostalgia, and Spring Racing ready dresses. From Melbourne-ready monochromes, spring pastels, and bold pops of colour, the eclectic runway was a pitch perfect way to introduce the new season (and a welcome reprieve from the gloomy winter we’ve all endured!)

Michael Lo Sordo opened the show with a bold, structural crimson trench, following with textured pieces and his signature floating silk in dramatic silhouettes. The relaxed suiting shown was immediately covetable, and the relaxed denim coordinates will definitely be popping up across #fashionblogger Instagram.



In contrast to Lo Sordo, Scanlan & Theodore kept their colour palette muted, with their pieces playing in texture (the textured patent leather coordinates opening the show was a definite standout) and print on print for a real wow factor.


Viktoria and Woods opted for soft toned khaki in loose silhouettes, chic suiting and a subtle nod to the 70s in fabric and print picks. This season, their girl is grown up, but still playful at heart.

At Camilla and Marc, plaid coordinates, a touch of logo mania, and considered layering took the runway. The sheer, colour blocked layers were made for spring racing, while the C&M emblazoned collared tees are sure to be a cult item.

The master of innovative fabrications, Dion Lee played between utilitarian pieces and sleek and sexy lingerie-inspired slips, all with his signature laser cutting and hardware on display.


Arnsdorf showcased wide set lapels, iridescent cocktail dresses, complete with princess Diana sleeves, and 70s glam jumpsuits –  looking to the past as inspiration for their collection, albeit with updated takes on the trends.


Closing the show, Bianca Spender highlighted sleek suits not out of place in a 70s Bianca Jagger, plaid coordinates made for mixing and matching, and spring ready floaty, feminine dresses perfect for Spring Racing.
