For the first time ever this year Melbourne Spring Fashion Week has had a regional extension, landing my hometown of Ballarat with a cluster of MSFW events of their own. These wrapped up last night with a final catwalk show. The designers features were local or from regional Australian backgrounds, and there was even a focus on wool which is a big export for the region. I was lucky enough to be asked to attend several of the events and I've taken some photos to share with you.
The organising team gave me a really good spot on the front row of the catwalk so was able to get a couple of good photos. Catwalk shots are always a challenge in low light with no flash.
I was also representing local by wearing my Clasch Design houndstooth cape. I was really excited when I saw the designer Clare at the event. All my other items of clothing I borrowed from my sister Goldfields Girl, who will have some posts up shortly, too.

The amazing stylist who organised the show. She did a magnificent job and already has amazing ideas for next year. Below is me with Erica, the brilliant intern from the events team. She took the above photo.
