Every spring it happens: you see a floral fabric hit the catwalk and it reminds you of you grandmother’s sofa. You know the type: it looks both thick and a revival of something from the Victorian era. And there it was again on this year’s Melbourne fashion week (MSFW) catwalk with Alice McCall using it to structure her opening dress. Thankfully it opened and soon vanished, replaced instead by a white woven fabric that looked equally as thick, twice as well made, and three times more fashionable. For this was a collection in which the white pieces stood out (look out for the gold tipped, white boyfriend shirt-cum-dress in the gallery) despite sitting amongst meshes and backless bodysuits.
