With the arrival of Melbourne Fashion Week, it’s time to immerse ourselves in our city’s vibrant fashion scene and celebrate our nation’s creative talents. Fashion Week often exudes an air of exclusivity, an event reserved for industry insiders and experts. But, here in Melbourne, Fashion Week embraces inclusivity and community, inviting all to get involved and inspired.
From Monday, October 23 until Sunday, October 29, the week promises an array of captivating experiences for all our city’s fashion enthusiasts. Emporium Melbourne will take centre stage as the fashion epicentre, hosting The Hub, where a series of free events will unfold.
Beyond The Hub, the city will be transformed into a tapestry of pop-up runways and exhibitions to discover. To ensure you make the most of the week, we’ve curated a list of standout events that you won’t want to miss. So, Melbourne Fashion Week is not just for the industry elite; it’s a celebration of fashion for all where the streets become the runway and creativity knows no bounds.
