A friend once said to me, "It seems to me that it's always fashion week"... which you could take to mean several different things (both romantic and cynical) including - 'gosh, there are so many things on in Melbourne, aren't there?' *scratch forehead* ...
Yes, but. In a couple of weeks time, the one and only Melbourne Spring Fashion Week of 2012 will be under way.
The program has been released and there are many events and shows of interest to contemplate. Milly Sleeping is excited to announce that we will be partaking in the affair - presenting a showcase of new jewellery, featuring the work of several fantastic designers new to MS.
We will also be amid the audience. Numerous of our associated labels are showing their Spring/Summer collections around town, as the garments simultaneously start to trickle into stores. Look out for...
Lui Hon in MSFW Designer Series Runway 1
Limedrop in Designer Series Runway 3
Kuwaii in Designer Series Runway 4
Livia Arena in the Tomorrow's Heroes Runway show
and Tettmann.Doust, who will be part of the Parallel Tensions Exhibition at fortyfivedownstairs.
Exquisite garments by Tettmann.Doust, a Melbourne-based label created by Naomi Tettmann and Elke Doust, will be housed at Milly Sleeping for the first time this September. (You may remember their beautiful submissions to our Nice Work project?) The duo have recently been announced the winners of the 2012 Stonnington Emerging Designer Award, which will be celebrated with a runway presentation on August 23rd at the Malvern Town Hall. Many congratulations to Elke, Naomi and all at Tettmann.Doust - we are very much looking forward to the opportunity to show the fine details of the work in store.
