2013 has certainly brought the best out of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The opening designer runway 1 had guests not only being treated to some of the best Australian designed fashion, but an array of world class theatricals. Even before the show started, the seemingly lonely chair and a harp promised something extraordinary. And boy, did the musicians deliver! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, milliner Richard Nylon’s out of this world – closing presentation left everyone at a loss for words. All I can say is a new standard has been set for next year, and a very high one at that.
