On those warm Melbourne nights, the dance floors hots up and the music is cool and classy. It's time to dress up and live it up.
The Blue Room showcase was the final night of the Motorola Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2006. Designers on show tonight were:
White Suede, Leopold, Roger Grinstead, Flux, Morrissey, Bowie, Bettina Liano.

Filled with energy and colour, these are some of the labels have that emerged strongly over the last few years and White Suede opened the parade with a collection of colourful young women's attire - printed tops and mini and long dresses.

Leopold's menswear was quite sophisticated for a summer look - with the sporty sunglasses and thiongs relaxing the fine tailoring of the shorts and tops.

Floral prints and pure summer looks epitomised Roger Grinstead's look for the summer season. Quirky colours and patterns allow Roger to have fun in his collection.

Bold prints marked the Flux show in giving the men's look one of attitude and energy. Skinny legged trousers and striped tees added to the colourful presentation.

Stylish pieces summed up Morrissey's men's and women's collection. There was a relaxed feel in the women's jackets and pants while the men's jackets and loose fitting shorts and shirts gave the men a sporty summer look.

Bowie’s collection made a good visual impression with shades of red and black/white combinations. The air pf exuberance filled most of the pieces while others were more dramatic in atmosphere. The women's wear looked particularly striking.

Bettina Liano finished off the night with customary mini dresses and shorts to give a sexy look for summer. Again, red, black, and white comprised a good portion of the look to expect over the ensuing months.

Here are pictures of the parade.
