The Streets of Melbourne…a journey into cool fashion

I went walking out today to do something a little bit different….take a closer look at street fashion on the streets of Melbourne to take a break away from my concerns about school and my developing plan to go to Australia Fashion Week next month in Sydney.  I’d already noticed that many folks knew just how to dress….from classic, to alternative, to sophisticated and I’d become more and more drawn to the people who stalked the pavement daily on their way for lunch, work, or to shop….maybe even to head to school.  There was just a feast for my eyes and I was becoming more and more inspired.

I was running into a bit of a brick wall with my plans to participate in the study abroad program at RMIT and wondered how could I still look into Australian designs as they were so very beautiful, clean, and smart.  I thought perhaps just getting out onto the streets and into the shops and talking to people might teach me something I hadn’t expected to learn.  I’m still waiting for for inspiration to hit, but I feel I’m onto something.  I may still be able to learn more about Australian design yet.
