Melbourne Museum’s after hours Nocturnal event struts into Melbourne Fashion Festival this Friday night.
The Nocturnal series has grown legs, with each event building solidly on the last. Not only is it the quality programming, but the magic atmosphere that transcends the day time glaze of screaming children and chicken nugget madness. Roaming the museum with a slight vino tint also helps, but you will never see me in the creepy crawly section, after dark, or ever. For this edition, the museum has partnered with VAMFF for a glamorous tribute to Melbourne’s thriving music and fashion scene, coinciding with the launch of the Fashion Redux exhibition, a fitting celebration of talented local Melbourne designers and stylists. Entry to the exhibit is free with Museum entry.
Nocturnal + Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival present a night of culture meets couture featuring: The Avalanches (DJ Set), Kaiit, Chela, Chunky Move, bebé and launch Fashion Redux: a brand new collaborative fashion exhibition.
