MSFW: RMIT Student Runway

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to photograph the RMIT Student Fashion Show for Style Melbourne at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW). I missed out on shooting at MSFW last year, so covering the festival this year was a nice big tick of my bucket list. I'd heard that the student shows are fantastic. I definitely now understand why. They are filled with inspiring and daring designs. It's the perfect unison between art and fashion and the garments are so much more fun to shoot than just regular clothing.

DIY Journal Cover

Basically, I'm not a very creative person. I've always wanted to be, but whenever I create something 'crafty' it never truly turns out how I want it to look. I guess it's my inner perfectionist complaining. When I was in primary school my friend, Molly, was super creative. She had her own craft room, her mum was an awesome sewer, and I remember going over to her place to make a plethora of home made goodies. Polar fleece blankets that we sewed buttons on (I still credit learning how to hand sew buttons to this creation), coffee coasters recycled from roof tiles and decorated with purple and lime green glitter paint, the list goes on.
