HOT ALERT: Week of 31 August 2009

Another week, another festival. This time it’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (1 – 6 September) and despite the fact that it’ll be my first week in my new job, my diary is packed with events: Fashion at Altitude S/S 09/10 runway parade at Melbourne’s GPO on Wednesday 2 September; returning to Melbourne’s GPO on the […]

HOT: Liquid Desire Salvador Dali, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Rd, Southbank

Saturday morning: NGV Members viewing of Salvador Dali: Liquid Desire at NGV International. Otherwise known as the Dali moshpit.

Thread Den: Part 2 After my success at Thread Den’s Sewing Basics Module 1, I was all enthused about Sewing Basics Module 2, where I’d be learning about zips, buttons, elastic and casings. I don’t know whether it was the lunch of sausage rolls and cupcakes that I had, but I found it very hard […]

HOT: Steel Works, Guildford Lane Gallery, 20-24 Guildford Ln, Melbourne

My second time to the Guildford Lane Gallery as an accidental visit after an abortive attempt to find a Laneway Commission in Guildford Lane. This time, the gallery was showing disparate works from a couple of different artists, with the ground floor occupied by Steel Works by Mark Cowie and Greg Cassidy. As I’ve previously […]
