LMFF Opening Event Presented By David Jones

This year, David Jones supported by Vogue Australia kicked L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival off officially with a breathtaking show.  L’oreal Paris Ambassadors Megan Gale and Barbara Palvin sat front row as internationally acclaimed designer Mary Katrantzou opened the show with Jessica Gomes sporting one of her one-of-a-kind couture creations.

The beauty look, created by the L’Oreal Paris team, was sleek- the eyes were natural with a bold statement lip. The hair slicked back with a side part, excepting David Jones ambassadors Jess Gomes, Montana Cox and Samantha Harris.

Some of the hottest pieces from the David Jones designer stables stepped foot on the runway, with some clear standouts from the likes of Ellery, Collette Dinnigan, Josh Goot, Gary Bigeni and Romance was Born.

More than anything, it was such a thrill to finally see Mary Katrantzou pieces up close and personal after so many years of lusting after them on the international circuit.

Check out the runway shots and some backstage sneak peeks below!

    Have to agree. The myriad of bright colours and patterns are not something I would wear.

    The mix of patterns and colours is a bit OTT for me!!! Like the black and white!
