Visiting Australia was a trip of a lifetime. It is definitely more than just Kangaroos and Koalas, as most Americans know it as. Melbourne's artistic culture made me fall in love with the city. Melbourne, Victoria is the fashion capital of Australia. The Victorian architecture combined with the urban buildings caught my eye. The city of immense character is now my favorite destination. A walk through Melbourne leads you to find the treasures of the beautiful lanes and arcades that add to the charm of the city. I was lucky enough to have the walking tour with five passionate Melbourne locals.
I like to call it, minimalist Melbourne. The style in Melbourne encompassed simplicity and elegance. I was lucky enough to go in my favorite season, fall. The fall/winter styles impressed me because men and women of all ages wore minimal pieces but still exemplified their own style with glam. Minimalism is the opposite of expressivsim, hence the clothing is typically colder and excludes emotion. Expressive work deals with prints and flowy dresses. But the typical Melbourne girl in my eyes had, a leather bomber jacket with boyfriend jeans or a trench coat. I loved it and was inspired by all the different stores and styles.
