Heading to #VAMFF GQ Australia Menswear Runway? We spoke to Brad Homes from GQ Australia to get his top looks for the festival.


Brad Homes is GQ Australia’s Fashion Editor. He begun his career working alongside one of Australia’s most celebrated Creative Directors Virginia van Heythuysen at prestige title The Australian Financial Review. As he watched his comrades all secure jobs at Vogue he knew exactly where he wanted to be – At Vogue’s brother publication GQ. He still can’t believe he now walks the same halls of the industry icons he’s been Instagram stalking for years.

Brad explains his EDIT:

Look 1 & 2 :
A sleek polished shoe – Suitable for day-to-night, a polished lace up will provide a sophisticated edge.

Look 3:
A cool pair of glasses -
An essential for entry and exit to any fashion show

Look 4:
A large scarf –
The perfect addition for travelling between shows and can easily be removed when indoors.

Look 5:
A pouch to carry all of the essentials -
Ensure it’s stocked with mints, balm and a comb. Never underestimate the importance of being well-groomed.

Look 6:
Bring the hardware –
Show you can accessorize, keep it chic with a simple silver bangle.

Look 7:
Well cut pants –
Show you mean business with a modern pair of well-cut trousers.

Look 8:
A solid fragrance –
A pouch essential to subtly freshen up, no one wants to gas out the room!

Look 9:
A simple overcoat -
Opt for a neutral color way that will ensure this becomes a staple. Black is always a safe option.

Look 10:
A sleek watch –
No one is fashionably late, you need to be on time!

Look 11 & 12:
Add a print -
Break up a monochrome look with a printed shirt.
A quirky print adds an element of fun.
