Explore Australia’s fashion capital during the Festival. Whether it’s before or after the Runway, Melbourne saves its best for the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival.

Some of Melbourne and Victoria’s most iconic sights are just a short trip out of town, so you can pair your sightings of supermodels with a look at local designers and be back in the city in time for the next fashion show.

Spend some time in the city centre and you’ll discover it’s neatly divided into little pockets for you to explore. Find art, bars and restaurants up and down in the laneways, retail therapy for any budget in Bourke and Collins streets, and creative outlets on show in Flinders Quarter. St Kilda Road means galleries and gardens, while neighbouring Yarra Precinct and Docklands deliver waterside views by the boatload. Check out these stylish recommendations to immerse yourself in via the drop down menu.
