Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Begins 29 August at Southgate
From 29 August-7 September, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) arrives at Southgate with an eclectic range of free exhibitions and displays showcasing innovative emerging designers and the creative process behind some of Melbourne's most celebrated fashion icons.
"Melbourne is a city bursting with creativity, whether it is through food, fashion, arts, design or music. As Melbourne's landmark dining and shopping destination located next to the city's famous arts precinct, Southgate recognises the contribution Melbourne's iconic fashion designers make to our ever evolving creative scene to make Melbourne a celebrated arts and cultural capital," says Southgate marketing manager Jo Gartner.
The following exhibitions are presented by Southgate in association with MSFW:
Nixi Killick Centre Stage exhibition
Presented by the Photography Studies College
Podium level alcove gallery
A collaborative photography exhibition between innovative emerging designer Nixi Killick and students from the multi award winning Photography Studies College (Melbourne) showcasing Nixi's strikingly unique techno colour designs through one-off prints captured by some of the college's most promising graduating students.
Nixi was recently chosen as one of the world's top 100 independent designers at Italy's ORIGIN PASSION & BELIEFS showcase. Her designs are a vibrant mix of bio-psychedelic artwork and sculptured techno-wearables and have been worn by Lady Gaga, Kimbra, Hiatus Koyote and Lapalux of Brainfeeder. They have also featured on the runways of MSFW, Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, AWARE and iD Fashion week.
This creative and collaborative exhibition will be on display in the podium level alcove gallery at Southgate for the duration of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.
