I am very honored to attend LMFF as a guest of Woolmark. Not only is wool a sustainable and green fabric, but there are tons of new advancements being made to the fiber to heighten comfort, beauty, and function. If designers are re-evaluating what is really important in fashion (the clothes and the textiles rather than front row celebrities and unwearable garments) then there is no better fabric to put on your list than wool.

Wool has been a staple fabric in our wardrobes long before before rayon, polyester, and other synthetic fibers started clogging up our landfills. Australia is the world's largest producer of wool in the world and Woolmark is the the most recognized fiber brand in the world. Every year, the Australian Wool Innovation and Woolmark present a Designer Award to one of Australia's most innovative and fashion forward designers.

The awards ceremony is tonight and I wanted to take a minute to introduce all of the nominees. Since this will not be the last time you hear a lot of these names, you should start getting familiar. I had a chance to meet most of them at the kick off party and they all are hungry for expressing creativity, integrating in overseas markets, and re-defining what it means to wear wool.

Last night I attended the LMFF kick off party at the Governor's House in Melbourne. Hosted by Harper's Bazaar, the party took on a bit of a Wonderland theme to coincide with their latest issue. Guests were treated to a rather interesting Elvis impersonator performance followed by a runway show of some of the Wonderland designer looks from the issue.
I had a chance to meet and greet all of the finalists for the Woolmark award and everyone was so friendly and warm. Aussie fashion people are very eccentric and ooze creativity.
Thanks to Belinda for the amazing Vanessa Bruno dress! I've been inspired lately by French style and its simplicity and I think this captures that chic sensibility.

Marni Love

Scarlet from Woolmark (the most important wool supplier in the world) was kind enough to arrange a meeting with the girls from Belinda International (a retail store comparable to Intermix meets Barney's meets Kirna Zabete) to pull a few things for our week in Melbourne.
I instantly fell in love with the quirky cool vibe of the Marni accessories. There is something crafty about them yet they still seem luxurious.
I also pulled a Vanessa Bruno dress that I wore tonight and will share pictures tomorrow! I met so many amazing people tonight at the Governor's Ball which kicked off the LMFF (L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival) festivities. Aussie fashion folk are actually super nice!...very refreshing compared to the New York or European scene.
Check back for more pics later!
