MSFW | Parallel Tensions

August 31, 2012

They say that only people who live in Melbourne know where the best hide-aways are and this is no exception. Down some stairs on Flinders Lane you will find the fortyfivedownstairs Gallery which is hosting the Parallel Tensions exhibition for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. This year features some of Melbourne's most promising up-and-coming designers with their current collections ranging from soft and feminine, to edgy leather and unique avant garde pieces. 
My personal favourite collection is Oracles (pictured above) because it is more what I'd wear.

A lot (maybe everything) of what is on display is for sale and there are some really lovely pieces for spring/summer 2012, so if you love supporting local designers, I think it's time to update your wardrobe with some of these creations.

In a dark curtained off room there is a small cinema with short films featuring each designer explaining their collection and their inspirations. Also, if you've ever wondered what happens to old MX's (a Melbourne newspaper for those of you know don't know), they get stacked and turned into arty seats.

The Parallel Tensions Exhibition will be open until the end of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week which is September the 9th. It's also free to enter which is a bonus!
