The LMFF, on from 15 to 22 March 2009, embraces fashion and highlights Australian Designers. It also brings to the fore emerging designers, and what better way to learn about these new designers and in turn to love them.
Some great looks from established Australian designers (*WARNING: picture heavy post*)
I love the elegance and drape of the dresses and more importantly the subtle hint of neon orange footwear.
I want this; I'd wear this outfit from head to toe...the hood, the metallication, the pop of colour on her feet.
The silhouettes showcased by Nom D blew me away. I adore the departure from the norm and the extravagance that makes these outfits so very covetable.
Tina Kalivas: loving the headwear...a nice touch
Embellishing is all the rage; and the subtle way in which Aurelio conveys this is perfect. Love the ruffles and the minimalistic way in which attention is commanded.
The sheer perfection of these dresses/tunics. The cut, the drape, the seams. I love.
On the independent side of things, there were some really great offerings:
Daniela Orlando; I like that it's not OTT so that you pay attention but has a standout touch
Lui Hon for VON
This is sheer perfection. The contrast of the soft fabric of varying heaviness, the romanticised drape, contrasts in terms of asymmetry and structure and drape. It all equals fabulous things.

Apologies for the uber crap photos, I had to ctrl+print screem them all and paste them into paint. I do not own photoshop, obviously.
p.s. I DIY'ed the Wang denim chain shorts on Friday night whilst watching Ghost Town. Such a funny movie and was nice and easy to watch whilst my attention was on the DIYing. Pictures of the shorts to come....pleased at how they turned out and at how EASY a DIY this was :)
p.p.s. found a knockoff Junya Watanabe skirt at the most random shop (Flower, for the Aussies out there). Only walked in because they were having a closing down sale and whilst most of the stuff was middle to pensioner-style stuff, this skirt was incredible. For $30, mine. Also picked up an asymmetrical layered rough-cut shrug/cape for next to nothing there.
