MSFW 09- RMIT fashion show

Behind the scenes of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week’s RMIT show, one can immediately notice the passion, the drive, the fearlessness, the perfectionism that our young designers have employed into their lives of fashion and design.

Melbourne’s finest fourth year RMIT students showed off their impeccable designs on Saturday night as MSFW drew to a close.

The parade offered a compelling viewing of artistic flare, precision to detail and design, and the mixing of unusual fabrication.

RMIT’s Fourth-year Fashion Co-ordinator Denise Sprynskyj, from the School of Architecture and Design, said “students this year have been inspired by the human body, the application of millinery techniques to cloth, the work of international artists, and global events like the financial crisis.”

There was a definite focus on women’s wear this year, whilst some chose to venture into the design of swimwear and children’s wear offering a fresh ultimatum.

There were many highlights of the show, but one in particular was the enthusiastic designer Nadia Napreychikov captivating the audience with her collection as it mimicked a “parody on the obsession with shoes/footwear.”

Napreychikov explained that her collection is based on “the ‘statement shoe’ as the shoe takes over the whole body, and essentially becomes the whole outfit.”

The RMIT show has provided an array of superbly talented young designers that we must keep an eye out for in the future.

 

Below are some images taken backstage, the front of house and some of the designer’s sketches:
