As part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, a selection of final year Fashion students are exhibiting their work at No Vacancy Gallery. These students are yet to finish their degree (they are 3, 3/4 years through) so this exhibition focuses on their final year design research and development. I found the work fascinating, beautiful and rigorously considered. I'm looking forward to seeing more from these emerging designers and will keep my ears pricked for the graduate exhibition.
Below are a few of my favourites from the exhibition. There were more that I found interesting but they weren't so easy to photograph. Luckily, although Fashion week is over, you can still catch the exhibition until September 18th.
