A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
Melbourne is celebrating another week of fashion this Spring! Following the success of Virgin Australia’s Melbourne Fashion Festival earlier this year, Creative Victoria is back at it again with the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The Creative Collection exhibition at Town Hall is one of the first few showcases that contributed to the launch of this one-week event. Here, you’ll witness a body of work by rising Victorian designers and artists who bring in their own unique practices to create statement clothing, footwear, films, graphics and Avant Garde millinery.
I advise people when attending any kind of fashion exhibition or runway to study a specific part of the garment carefully. Usually in haute couture shows the clothing worn by models down the runway are highly unpractical and there’s a reason for that. It’s obviously not intended to be worn in public but it’s made to inspire viewers with their different techniques and how their techniques could be applied to improving the future of fashion. It’s always that one aspect on the garment that is inventive ie. the way zips are used, the placement of buttons, the way a fabric drapes etc. This is what the Creative Collection exhibition offers with a large mix of bold and minimalist designs.
There are plenty of events scheduled throughout the week including workshops, premium runways and seminars. This week’s the week for you to get a dose of inspiration even if you’re strolling by Swanston st. The big white tent known as the ‘Hub’ is home to a Mecca mini popup shop, free Messina ice creams, T2 samples, Vespas, Movish digital specialists, live entertainment and a lineup of designer runways.
No I didn’t hashtag this on instagram but yep that’s me and my first time on a Vespa hah!
