The 20th Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival kicked off after a glitzy opening runway display on Monday night.
The Festival's 'premiere' runway show was presented by David Jones spearheaded by Sam Harris, former Victoria's Secret model Erin Wasson and ambassadors Jesinta Campbell and Montana Cox.
Showcasing over 60 brands in front of more than 2,500 people at the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne, the models donned a variety of bold, black and captivating colorful garments and unique Victorian and Seventies-inspired pieces ahead of the Autumn/Winter season.
