Makers of Melbourne

Welcome to Makers Of Melbourne – the ‘go to’ guide for our technically integrated age.

Makers Of Melbourne has been created to consume and assimilate Melbourne culture. We're male focussed, but not male specific, sorting through the dross to weed out the creative stars, standout events and stylish folk that make this city unique. 

MOM aims to embrace all facets of what makes this city a creative hub. Our aim is to inform without condescending – to keep you abreast of what’s going on without regurgitating Press Releases & to seek out this city’s sub cultures to give our readers the inside scoop on what’s REALLY happening with the people who make Melbourne Melbourne.

The Event: MSFW Runway 2

MSFW Designer Runway 2 brought us the best of the poets; a hand picked selection of Australian designers who specialize in bold fabric choices, clean silhouettes and contemporary cuts. From Alice McCall’s delightfully girly confections in colours ranging from lemon sorbet and pistachio, through to Neo Dia’s sleek lines and basket woven leather. Wednesday night’s parade was a bold look at the upcoming season.

 With each collection punctuated by a spoken word performance, the stage was set for a dramatic show. And the evening didn’t disappoint, Makers of Melbourne loved getting a sneak peak at the spring/summer ranges from Willow, Manning Cartell and Life with Bird as well one of our favourite local designers Lui Hon.
