My name is Liberty Scott and I’m in my second year of Fine Art at RMIT. I have a background in photography, fashion events and graphic design with a desire to enter into the fashion publication industry.
I’m passionate about Melbourne fashion as it is renown for its understated, effortless cool. Melbournians are certainly conscious of the latest trends but don’t explicitly follow them but rather choose to innovatively reinvent them by interpreting the trend in their own distinct way. Melbourne is a beloved city to all, as it is, and always will be unconventional and unique with a diversity of style that explores the boundaries of conventional fashion. Melbournians don’t shy away from taking chances and trying new things — though we are not known to be colour enthusiasts, there is always an eclectic and eccentric streak to the Melbourne fashion crowd that brightens up the city.
However much I admire these vibrant characters and their choice of bold, daring styles, I find my self to be a typical Melbournian, draped in staple layers of black, most often teamed with black ankle boots and black sunglasses. Think black; lots of black. In fact, think entirely black! I indulge in the local designers mostly, LifewithBird, Alpha60 and Claude Maus are favourites but must confess an extreme weakness for Acne and Alexander Wang.
Melbourne fashion is closely connected to the thriving art scene, as in partnership they illustrate the narrative and expression that is connected with Melbourne’s artistic creativity. Underground chic is the most precise and unembellished way to characterise Melbourne’s persona. Melbourne boasts enchanting historical buildings and distinctive rich architecture that greatly inspires Melbourne fashion, confirmed by distinctive garment choices that intermix layers, textures and cuts.
So that’s enough about me, but I look forward to sharing my latest RMIT fashion and beauty discoveries with you!
