Lifestyle, What's On

Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival

This year Melbourne’s largest celebration fashion is running for ten, gorgeous days.

Aiming to be bigger and better than the previous years, the festival will include world-class runway events from well-known, and up and coming Australian designers, beauty workshops, industry Q&A’s, live entertainment and more.

Not just restricted to Melbourne CBD, the festival will this year kick off with smaller Fashion Weekend events in key shopping meccas like Chapel Street, High Street, Chadstone and Glenferrie Road – all activated with exclusive discounts and activities for shoppers,

but will really ramp up with the Vogue / David Jones Gala Runway to be held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton on the 14th of March.

For those who are more into the countercultural or functional elements of fashion, there are several interesting workshops running like ‘Sequin-Savvy: The History of Calisthenics Fashion’ and an International Women’s Day forum breakfast on 8 March, presented by Marie Claire and Mimco.

Don’t forget to check out the Priceline Pharmacy Festival of Beauty pop, located in the Plaza, just outside the Exhibition building from 14-19 March, you’ll usually get your hands on some pretty decent freebies.

When: 1-19 March 2017
Where: Various locations in and around Melbourne
