Backstage at the third major runway for VAMFF (Melbourne Fashion Festival) 2012, messy, wet look hair was being artfully created. These wet strands were soon to become the tumbled tail we were so smitten with, a kind of double-twist that looked like a fish plait. Matched by lived-in black eyeliner that gave a rock-star edge, the models backstage were transformed wholly to fit the mood of the show.
