Circa Nocturna – Annual Gothic/Alternative Fashion Parade. March 1 2008

January 28, 2008


As Melbourne Fashion Festival approaches, in all its’ glitzy glory, it seems timely to point out the one fashion parade you might not hear about in the magazines or mainstream press: unless of course it’s the Age which seems to have taken quite a fancy to alternative fashion recently. 
 
Circa Nocturna showcases alternative designers from the very gothic and florid to more alternative-streetwear stylings featuring designers of  clothing and/or accessories.  It’s up to a third year and has grown increasingly popular each year, leading me to believe that tickets this year may be difficult to come by closer to the night.
 
A full list of designers appears on their website and details of ticket outlets there also.  $20 presale and $25 on the door.
 
Highly recommended to those who wish to sample the pvc-lined underbelly of  Australian alternative fashion or just like some spice in their eye candy…
