Right through to the ultimate cross over of musician-slash-fashion icon-slash-designer Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B.

As part of the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program, The Portable Film Festival, an international web-based film festival, based in Melbourne, Australia, are proud to present a week of fashion films at

Every day this week (from Monday 16th of March), they are premiering new fashion films; from documentaries featuring intimate portraits of the newest collections by leading Australian designers, to films which highlight other aspects of the industry and fashion filled music videos.

Today (Wednesday 18th March) is Look Like You Sound

Get lost in the fantasy of Portable’s Look Like You Sound Music Video Showcase where local and international musicians raid the wardrobe of rock stardom, not only playing the music, but more importantly, dressing the part. This features many local Australian acts and designers including Architecture in Helsinki, Gwendolynne Burkin, Romance was Born, Little Red and Empire of the Sun (pictured below).
