Thank you Melbourne for another fantastic weekend! Our 2nd ever Melbourne Markets were held over the weekend and we were thrilled with the result. We once again got the pleasure of seeing so many people pouring into Victoria Harbour and choosing to celebrate art & design whilst the Grand Prix was in full swing! The markets hosted over 140 designers & artists over the warehouse space at Shed 4 in Docklands, whilst we got to enjoy great local music, yummy tacos and delicous cupcakes!
We had so many amazing features including Drawn from Fashion exhibition, The Paper Convention Collective, Ethical Clothing Australia’s Vintage Photo booth, Mr Lincoln flowers, Mister Nice Guy Cupcakes and the new Taco Truck!
The weekend could not have been a huge success with all the amazing people behind us that helped support the event!!
