Fashion inspired by '80s rock stars.

We’re bringing you pics from another offsite runway event.

Forming part of the VAMFF Cultural Program’s Offsite Runway Series last Sunday was Strangers in a Moment, a short film presented by contemporary Melbourne-based label, Chorus. The film and fourth range from the label were inspired by a title off Bertie Blackman’s newest album The Dash. It captures the movement of Chorus’ pieces, and was a pretty interesting showcase of film, music and fashion. 

The '80s-inspired collection uses silhouettes associated to rock stars of the era, seen in the use of sequins like explosive confetti and in the kimono/biker hybrid jacket, to name a few.

Ever-wary of fast fashion trends, Chorus presented a collection that is for the curious woman with a sense of humor. The audience were also able to purchase the limited edition items at the event.

So much cool stuff at VAMFF guys.
