Melbourne International Millinery Competition 2021

The Melbourne International Millinery Competition returns to Labassa with the theme of ‘Little Black Dress’

Back for its fifth year, the Melbourne International Millinery Competition promises to be a chic affair with displays of millinery from leading milliners across Australia and overseas. Expect everything from Hollywood glamour, to the elegantly restrained, to the outrageously theatrical.


The hat displays will be showing in the Drawing, Dining and Music rooms of Labassa in Caulfield North.
