The designs were from the current season in Australia and featured a collection of medium to large handbags which shows a possible trend away from the current mini-handbag trend of 2014.

The handbags on the David Jones runway yesterday at the Melbourne Fashion Festival were soft, large and shown in dark colors. There were several silhouettes featured including shoulder bags, north-south totes, duffle bags and clutches. The only handbag style shown on the David Jones in a small size were the clutches. The shoulder bags were medium and the totes, duffle bags and additional styles were shown in large sizes.

This is an interesting move as most designers during fashion month in New York, Milan, Paris and London showed small and mini sized handbags for the fall/winter 2014/2015 season. In fact, there has been a move towards small handbags over the past few years. The larger handbags shown on David Jones runway at the Melbourne Fashion Festival last night could signal a possible move towards medium and large handbags as we move into 2015.

The designers showcased on the David Jones runway at the Melbourne Fashion Festival included Akin by Ginger & Smart, Alice McCall, Banjo & Matilda, Bassike, Bec & Bridge, Bianca Spender, CM Camilla and Marc, Calibre, Cameo, Camilla, Camilla and Marc, Christopher Esber, Dion Lee, Easton Pearson, Ellery, Etre Cecile, Finders Keepers, Ginger & Smart, Industrie, Jac + Jack, Jack London, Josh, Goot, Keepsake the Label, L'America, Lover, Michael Lo Sordo, Mimco, Mink Pink, Nicolas, Nicola Finetti, Rachel Gilbert, Romance Was Born, Sabatini, Scanlan Theodore, Shakuhachi, Staple the Label, Talulah, Thurley, Tigerlily, Vanishing Elephant, Viktoria + Woods, Willow, Zanerobe, and Zimmerman.
