Last night was the opening event of Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, presented by David Jones and supported by Vogue Australia, featuring collections from leading Australian designers. Two classmates and myself covered the event for voxfrock.com.au. Our teacher at uni got us passes to access all areas of the event. We started shooting makeup, hair and dressing backstage at 3pm to rehearsals on the runway. It was a really long day, and with tired necks and feet, we were all a bit out of it when the two shows were over at around 11pm. But it was so much fun and interesting seeing how all the organising of a runway show is done backstage.
