Lionel's Melbourne is set to dress up and party down from Monday, 3 September until Sunday, 9 September with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW).

MSFW is about fashion's recent history, the rise of global brands, runway shows and visionaries, the business of fashion and their collective influence on the Melbourne fashion scene. MSFW is also about showcasing the latest local trends at City Square, the 4 fresh faces, emerging designers and their exhibitions and fashion that is Made-in-Melbourne.

I had the opportunity to review some of the talent creating fashion in Melbourne including the eclectic pair Sarina Zammit (Mina) and Katya Baxter (Katusha) who share the same passion and aspirations despite their differing views. The combination of Mina's design flair and Katusha's business acumen produced stunning results and their label Mina & Katusha is stocked in 12 boutiques around Australia. Born in 2008, Mina & Katusha remains thoroughly Melburnian at heart and 100% dedicated to supporting the Australian fashion industry. With so many labels going off shore the duo made a conscious decision to keep their production right here in Victoria. They strongly believe their customers appreciate the story associated with their new garment being produced just two hours up the Hume Highway.

Mina & Katusha fuse tradition and craftsmanship of their European roots to the warmth, expressiveness and fusion of Melbourne culture to create world-class fashion for women right here in Australia. Inspired by music, graphic design and visual art, the dynamic duo will be showcasing their versatile, luxurious and intelligent interpretation of contemporary women's fashion at the Made In Melbourne runway show as part of MSFW. MIM is supported by Kwencher, Nudie Juice, Hair By Ciccone, Bodyography, RMK, Moxy Tampons, Time Out Magazine, Ichu Jewelry, Canvas Marketing and Fjorde Magazine.
