Soft Tailoring Trend
Viktoria & Woods

As one of fashion’s first runways to embrace the new normal, the mood at the Melbourne Fashion Festival’s David Jones Gala Runway was electric and inspired. Styled by Kate Gaskin, the lineup of Australian and international designers forecasted a brighter future with strong and striking silhouettes that put comfort first. With a runway filled with fun and familiar faces, the message was clear; this is style to make you smile.
