For all our talk of fashion, there is nothing we are more excited for than our very own fashion week in Melbourne. The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) takes place 1 – 10 March 2019 at the Royal Exhibition Building. Casper & Casper are thrilled to see new collections from both rising and established designers throughout the event.
We are also inspired by the ethos of the event. VAMFF takes pride in its core mission to “profile and amplify Australian and international creative talent…by embracing fashion in all its forms to inspire consumers”. Their values are also admirable, involving integrity, teamwork and passion: vital aspects that keep the fashion fashionable.
The festival also promises to promote an environmentally-aware culture amongst its staff and participants, as is evident by their rejection of any real fur, distancing itself from the exploitative use of animals in the fashion industry, like the Vegan Fashion Week earlier this year. Although not as radical, VAMFF takes the first important steps towards promoting sustainable fashion and intelligent clothing choices.
Our founder’s favourites include Bianca Spender, Camilla & Marc and Dion Lee. Of course, we’re also eager to see up-and-coming talents Client Liaison – all-rounders who dabbled in music, fashion, and a limousine business.
