    Finish Your Summer In High Fashion

    Melbourne is bringing summer to an end and ushering in the autumn with a Fashion Festival lasting nearly three weeks, from 1 March to 18 March.

    The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival is an annual celebration of fashion, arts, ideas and creative production for everyone to enjoy. The Festival presents the country’s largest consumer fashion event, including world-class runway shows featuring Australia’s established and emerging designers, state-of-the-art production, beauty workshops, retail events, industry seminars, forums, live entertainment and much more.

    The daily runway events begin on Monday 5 March with David Jones, supported by Vogue Australia, and continue for the rest of the festival. Each runway event showcases different designers and fashion themes, and are ticketed events. Booking is recommended, as these events can sell out very quickly.

    You can hear great fashion ideas discussed at one of the many forums and talks on the program. They include business seminars, retail strategies, social media and photography, among many other topics. Ticket prices vary for these events.

    Fashion on Film is celebrated with a collection of fashion documentaries, including shoemaker Manolo Blahnik and designer Yves Saint Laurent, along with panel discussions.

    Many exhibitions have been curated to coincide with the festival. The Jewish Museum, at 26 Alma Road, St Kilda, is hosting an intimate exhibition of the inner world of soul singer Amy Winehouse, who tragically died young in 2011. Her family has given the Jewish Museum access to many of Amy’s belongings.

    Digital Mana, a project by Maori-Australian photographer and weaver Kirsten Lyttle, looks at the use of digital media to express cultural art which traditionally uses plants and other materials. Her ideas are inspiring for anyone working across cultures, or between ancient and modern culture.

    Guo Pei is a Chinese fashion designer, based in Beijing, well-known for designing dresses for Chinese celebrities, and a trailing yellow gown for singer Rihanna. Influenced mainly by traditional Chinese imperial court design, using silk, fur and embroidery, she was inspired to create her Legend series by a visit to Swiss haute couture fabric manufacturer Jakob Schlaepfer.

    The fashion festival does not overlook dining and fine wine. The place to go for that is the Plaza at the Royal Exhibition Building, at 9 Nicholson Street, Carlton.

    There you will find much to choose from. For the first time, Mr Miyagi's is presenting five half-hour mini gourmet experiences daily, hand delivered by one of their experienced chefs, who will explain the ingredients, the preparation and the history of their cooking techniques.

    If you just want to relax, try out the Chandon S Bar, the 6ft6 Wine Garden, or Japanese elegance, stunning greenery, and ice cold beer at the Asahi Festival Bar.

    If you think the above is a lot to think about, visit the Festival's website at vamff.com.au and see the whole program.
