Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival is holding a runway dedicated entirely to pleats.
You’ll get the chance to see each designer’s Autumn/Winter 2017 capsule collections, with each celebrating the art of handmade pleating.
The event aims to create awareness around the specialist trade, in an attempt to breathe life into a skill often overlooked in favour of a machine.
To inspire their designs, each label will take a dip into the Specialty Pleaters archives for vintage pleating moulds.
You know your Friday night’s festivities are sorted when tickets are just $28.
