DAY 2: Melbourne

Its my best friend's birthday today and i feel slightly bad that i only sent her a birthday wish through sms. However, today I am going to richmond, to bridge rd where i can look for cheap clothes and presents for people. It's absolutely scorching and my skin is sizzling under the sun. It doesn't take long to get there, as Melbourne is so small compared to Sydney. I walked down Swanston's to get to Flinders Station (its this beautiful building opposite Federation Square) and the NGV (National Gallery Victoria) is there too. Omgsh! There was a clothing exhibition called Together Alone: Australian and New Zealand Fashion. I was there for HOURS just looking at all the designs. My favourite has got to be Material By Product. Their innovative approach to design, as well as their appreciation of form and sartorial structure made it a stand out for sure!!! Tony Maticevski was pretty good too as well as Akira. AAHHH love it love it.
Bridge Rd shops were pretty much all the ones like in Sydney anyway, so i didnt wanna spend too long there. The road is so old and spacious. But it was ok i suppose. There were these ugly shoes there though, its like clogs- carved out of wood- with strips of leather stapled across the foot. It looked soo cheap but cost $110. Urgh, how stupid.
