**L'Oreal Paris Runway 3 report**

A very stylish and classy array of designs marked Runway 3.

It was all about ruffles for Aurelio Costarella - one standout was a black and white gown that was nearly ready to take off - so to speak. It was a worthy piece to remember. He again showed how sophisticated he can be. Like I've seen regularly in recent years, Nicola Finetti took a stance on black, with occasional colourful splashes.

The Nicolangela label continued to show how creative it can be with a variety of colours in refreshing patterns. Leopold brought some menswear to the parade with tuxedo and casual wear to give a generally stylish view. Not too much to dare from the Su label, but still worth seeing for the cut and styling structure.

Australian Project Runway winner Juli Grbac had her first outing in such an occasion and her ruffled satin brought a bright touch in the cocktail dress stakes. A good amount of flair and creativity shown. Jayson Brunsdon presented another stylish range, with more ruffles and well-tailored features. Gwendolynne is a great favourite of the Melbourne fashion watchers and she displayed a beautiful collection in her trademark way, with the intricate detail and structure and accompanied by some vibrant high energy music.
