THE 2002 Melbourne Fashion Festival took place in Australia’s cultural capital, between March 17 and 24. Primarily aimed at retail, the Festival showcased a wide array of both Australian and international designers.
   The week opened with some of Australasia’s most recognized labels in the L’Oréal Paris Ready to Wear 1 show. Designers included Collette Dinnigan, Akira Isogawa, Nicola Finetti and Zambesi. Buyers, photographers and the media flocked to the event held in the luxurious ballroom of the Regent Plaza.
