Worn Wild is a bi-annual event held in March the weekend after the long weekend & as part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week the first weekend of September. Showcasing the best of Melbourne’s underground & alternative designers with select interstate guests. Fashion, jewelry, hair artistry, accessories & body art for rockers, ravers, queers, punks, cyberpunks, goths, hippies, metalheads, emos, lolitas, clubbers, fans of corsetry & burlesque & general street-stylin’.
For customers & industry buyers “Worn Wild” is the one-stop shop for all styles alternative. It’s a chance to see the full range of products on offer from each designer, try on items you have only ever seen on the net or order a custom-made design. You’ll be amazed at the huge diversity and volume of products on show.
If it’s jewellery you’re after Worn Wild will be showcasing a stunning variety adorned with feathers, flowers, cameos, beads, ribbons & steel from the romanticly elegant to the more chunky, industrial & masculine in design. There are hair accessories too in the form of cyber lox & hair additions, rockabilly & skull clips, voodoo combs, lolita headpieces & fascinators to name a few.
You’ll find plenty of individualistic & unique couture – corsets, street wear, occasion wear & club styles that can be custom ordered or off the rack, one offs and standard stock. Our unique designers are less likely to be influenced by the latest season’s looks, hemlines, celebrities or new blacks!
But it’s not just about clothing and accessories, Worn Wild is committed to bringing to its audience products and services which influence every aspect of alternative lifestyle. There’s artwork, bags, manchester or perhaps you’d fancy a new hairdo?
Worn Wild is the first show of its kind in Australia. It’s a hotspot for all genres of alternative design and portfolios some of the most innovative wearable art forms as well as the most exciting ‘niches’ in the underground of fashion.
Finally there is a captivating and high energy event that does more than just put fashion on show.
