It may be the middle of MBFWA, but Day 3 has unveiled some of the best looks yet. This is Buro 24/7 Australia editor Rebecca Caratti's verdict

Romance Was Born is always the treat of Fashion Week, serving up utterly fanciful and OTT creations in the most magical settings year after year. Today was no exception - Roslyn Oxley's Darling Point manor Carthona formed the opulent backdrop for Romance Was Born's equally extravagant collection.

By lunchtime, the fash pack were transported to an infinitely more pared back - but no less rewarding - vision of chic sustainability at the KitX show. Housed in the heritage-listed Paddington Reservoir, the vibe was gritty and raw. Sneaky Sound System's Connie Mitchell, who performed arias accompanied by a string quartet, set the mood for something special - and Kit Willow delivered, sending out perfect look after perfect look from her Resort '16/17 collection, titled N°5.
