Seasonal Delights: Consumption of Trends and Worlds Around Us

The Bowler Associates are hosting a stunning event as a part of the Melbourne Fashion Festival on Saturday 15th and 16th of March. The concept of the event involves Sarah Wilcock, leading Melbourne journalist and blogger selecting six fashion labels to offer up their favourite outfit of the season. The labels, including Melbourne favourite Limedop, Kathryn Beker, Chirinta Exie, Neo Dia, Tettmann.Doust and newcomer Aaizel offer up their garment to then be interpreted by artist and food designer Ryan Foote, into six unique food dishes.

Fashion stylist Emily Ward (The Age, Melbourne Fashion Festival, Royal Botanic Runway) will take the resulting dishes and use them a source of inspiration to direct all the hair, make-up and backdrops for a styled fashion shoot featuring all the garments.

And just when you think this event couldn’t get any more amazing, the photoshoot of styled food and modelled fashion will be shot by talented photographer Stu Morley (his clients include Chadstone, Viktoria + Woods, Mossimo and Leonard St) to be featured at the Seasonal Delights exhibition during VAMFF.

This is a fascinating concept, and a wonderful mix of art, fashion and food. The public exhibitions is being held at 1/24 Macquarie Street Prahran from 12-5pm on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of March. Admission is free.
