Made in Melbourne

By Nicola St John

Melbourne’s Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) officially opened this month in a rain-soaked, tiny laneway littered with milk-crates and opulent flowers.

This is a fitting setting perhaps for what we can expect – a touch of the old amongst a bit of grunge and a whole lot of floral.

Just across the river, South Wharf will be hosting the Made in Melbourne initiative this season, featuring 15 young and emerging designers set to make their mark on the festival circuit.

These relatively undiscovered Melbourne designers will have the chance to showcase their works as part of a mentoring program from the MSFW, which endeavors to support independent fashion and emerging design.

A more unique approach than the standard designer shows, Made in Melbourne has the potential to show what Melbourne can produce and display creative fashion untouched by the usual fashion pack.

Made in Melbourne opens on Friday, September 7 with the MSFW running from September 3 to 9.

Tickets to Made in Melbourne are available online from the Moshtix website.
