COLLECTIONS IN THE UNDERGROUND
Anita King's curated fashion parade and part of the L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Collections in the Underground launched last Saturday 3 March. It was our biggest audience since we took over Platform last year. Hundreds of fashionistas (and quite a few spunks) crammed into the subway following a humid 36 degree day that, along with the floor parade lights, turned the subway into an underground sauna! Despite the heat and sweat and lack of much-needed fans, our dedicated models flashed off new ranges from local independent fashion labels Queen, a name is a label, and Bird Girl. Big thanks to our tech crew including Dan (lighting), DC (video) and Luke (music). A collection of images by Jeanna Bajic (including the one featured here) will be showcased in a new exhibition currently being planned.
