Picking an outfit to wear to a fashion show can be daunting. The industry insiders are intimidatingly chic; the disparity between the October chill and the sweltering temperature inside the tent demands multiple layers; and the bevy of street style photographers flocking the entrance raises the stakes considerably. The runway fans at David Pecaut Square this week carried it off admirably. They played with texture, draping themselves in velvet, fur, leather and denim. They displayed a range of colours and prints (apparently, the fashion elite don’t always dress in black). And, most importantly, they each showed off their sartorial point of view without fear—and with conviction.
