Graduate showcases are, in my option, the best shows at Fashion Week. They're creative, vibrant and eclectic. They're pieces of art rather than the ready-to-wear runway items featured in most shows. The Graduate Showcase at VAMFF features twelve of the best fashion graduates around the country and last night's show absolutely took my breath away.
Sarah, from StyleMelbourne gave me the daunting task of making the runway photos creative.
Before each collection was presented to the audience, there was a short interview with the designer, explaining their inspirations and processes behind the clothes. I found these interviews to be particularly inspiring when it came to editing my images. Each image is edited to reflect the collection of each designer, highlighting the individuality and the colours of each garment.
