Now entering its third year, The Spirit of the Black Dress is an annual Fashion Photography Exhibition that showcases a selection of Australia’s most innovative emerging designers. Having attended each year I can attest to the fact that it’s always a production of the highest quality and one that does a fantastic job of bringing design talent to light. Successful applicants this year will have their garments professionally photographed and exhibited as part of 2011’s VAMFF (Melbourne Fashion Festival).
