This event is part of the 2022 Melbourne Fashion Week, celebrating the best in Australian Fashion.
Join this runway event at VAULT Block Arcade, a boutique opened in November 2021 to sell the National Trust’s ever-growing collection of pre-loved vintage garments and accessories. Buying second-hand is the most sustainable choice fashion lovers can make, and the National Trust is championing this movement through its VAULT Upcycle initiative.
Melbourne-based fashion designers were invited to choose a pre-loved garment from the collection to upcycle it into a new, wearable piece. This continuation of the Block Arcade’s Lunchtime Runway series shows how vintage garments can take on a whole new life.
