If you've been suffering from the ol' wardrobe blues, consider Tumnus your knight in shining armour. Having just launched in Melbourne this month, this genius initiative operates a bit like an online library, allowing you to borrow clothes from other fashionable folk in your area.
And it all kicks off with a special launch event at Collingwood's LVDI Studios from 7pm this Friday, April 27. Guests at the opening night pop-up will get the lowdown on all things Tumnus, while mingling with local style heroes and enjoying sips courtesy of Temple Brewing, Patient Wolf Gin, Strangelove and Innocent Bystander.
The Tumnus team has also pulled together a cracking lineup of guest speakers for the night, including stylist Simone Farrugia, fashion writer Leeyong Soo and musician Lisa Mitchell.
If you're keen to jump right into the fashionable stuff, sign up online, bring along some quality threads that haven't been getting much love of late (Tumnus recommends five pieces), and you'll be able to try on and borrow some other gear to take home for five weeks. Some pieces are free to borrow (you'll just have to pay for cleaning and delivery), while other items require a deposit. Otherwise, just come along for a stickybeak and get on board later — the pop-up will be open from 10am till 7pm on Saturday and Sunday, too.
The launch event is free, though you'll need to RSVP to secure your spot.
