Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: David Jones at Melbourne Fashion Festival

20th March, 2023

Throwback to this green dream at the David Jones runway show earlier in the month. I always make a point of wearing a designer available at David Jones whenever I attend one of their shows, and this time around it was all about Rachel Gilbert. I’ve worn her designs to several different occasions (a wedding, my mum’s birthday, the races… just to name a few) and love that each gown always has plenty of wow factor. In this instance it was all about this vibrant green hue. How gorgeous is it? Wearing colour is always one of my favourite ways to make a statement with my look. This hue is vivid and punchy, which made for a great option for an after dark event. The elegant long length silhouette is quite understated, but I love how the origami like folds add a touch of drama and also a textural element. Also who else is really loving one shoulder necklines? I’m a huge fan so it was another feature that drew me to this dress. It’s also perfect for summer dressing, particularly when it comes to balmy nights. Additionally I can’t resist a thigh high split for some added oomph!

When it comes to green, I always find either gold or black to be a great match when it comes to shoes and accessories. So in this instance I opted for my black Bottega Veneta heels and a jewelled black Miu Miu clutch to punctuate the look. When it comes to dress like this, I think a less is more approach to accessorising is key.
