There’s a reason why we usually associate the idea of ‘Spring’ with carnivals, celebratory events and days filled with laughter and lightness of the heart. This spring, rediscover yourself and share in the creative joy of the exciting events brought to you by ART du JOUR and Leiela Ladies Evening Wear as part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2013. On September 2nd, immerse yourself in one of the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring displays of local creative talent and ingenuity as ART du JOUR presents The Live Gallery and Spring Parade – two events that will captivate and inspire you! Set against the glorious backdrop, the heritage Treacy Centre in Parkville, come down and experience what some of Melbourne’s finest artisans, creators, designers and performers have to offer, and lose yourself in a world of colour, light and mesmerising entertainment.

Bring the kids along to The Live Gallery from 10am – 3pm, a free event where you can meet and be inspired by some of Melbourne’s finest artisans. Get an interactive insight into the fascinating worlds of Fashion and Art as they are expressed through the creative endeavours of local and international artists, including illustrator Kerry Bolwell, artist Belle Gualtier and awe-inspiring display from Ireland-based visual artist Rachel McBride. The unique nature of Rachel’s work practise and her resulting artistic displays really must be seen to be believed! Mums and Dads, haven’t you always wanted to get your little star in front of the camera? All kids are invited to experience a rare and exciting opportunity as Ikonic Kids agency team up with Madeleine Chiller Photography to host a free kid’s photo shoot!

As the shadow of darkness closes the day’s events, prepare yourself for an evening program presented by ART du JOUR that is set to redefine your idea of everything that a ‘Fashion Parade’ is! Commencing at 7pm at the Treacy Centre, be marvelled by The Spring Parade – a show like no other, where Fashion and Art are exhibited against the most elegant setting.
