MSFW Day 1

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week kicked off last night with a series of shows from the likes of Arnsdorf, Therese Rawsthorne and Gary Bigeni, and Oyster and Melbourne blogger Oh Jamie! went along to check it out. Click on images to see them in gallery mode.

Arnsdorf showed digital jewel prints and multi-faceted structural pieces. Here we saw our first mishap with a model suddenly losing her heels on the catwalk!
