Australian fashion darling Sportsgirl continued their blazing trial of support for up-and-coming fashion designers when they presented the National Graduate Showcase for L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, introducing 12 of the hottest new designers. Selected from 77 applicants, the fashion graduates, hailing from the design institutions of RMIT, Curtain and the University of Technology in Sydney, showed that the future is bright for Australian design through their quirky, fun, and creative designs. The graduates embraced block colour, patterns, sharp tailoring and chic silhouettes, with each collection being a unique nod to the designers inspirations.Sassy Bella
