Melbourne Fashion Week kicks off its 27th edition today, launching seven stylish days filled with vibrant runway shows, exhibitions, pop-ups, talks and more. Featuring over 250 designers and running from November 15–21, the annual festival kicks off with Vogue's Secret Garden Runway, transforming a lush pocket of the Royal Botanic Gardens into a pop-up catwalk styled by Carlos Mangubat.

Then, the Plaza Ballroom Runway will descend on the Regent Theatre's iconic event space for a visual feast of flowing fabrics and bold hues, styled by LGBTQIA+ activist Deni Todorović. Much-loved designers including Acler, Nicola Finetti, Jack London, Misha and Dom Bagnato will be showing off their latest show-stopping looks, across the runway's three sessions (November 15).

Meanwhile, Haus of Dizzy's Kristy Dickinson and Gammin Threads' Tahnee Edwards have collaborated on a supersized artwork for the new Town Hall Station at City Square; the free Fed Square Runway will showcase exciting threads from a group of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander designers (November 16); and the NGV hosts a special art-meets-fashion runway featuring designs from the likes of Carla Zampatti, Maticevski and Romance Was Born.

Deeper into the program, you'll find unique runway shows at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium and the MCG underground carpark, workshops covering everything from modelling to millinery, and a pop-up market celebrating the best of slow fashion (November 20).
