Style Melbourne

Whitehouse Institute of Design Runway

Leanne Whitehouse founded the Whitehouse Institute of Design in 1988 so a parade of recent fashion graduates was a fitting way to help celebrate their 20th anniversary. Just before Christmas, Sydney student’s work was shipped in for a colourful and eclectic runway show as the first round of Melbourne graduations is yet to happen this year from their newly opened local campus. Let’s hope we will have the opportunity to take a peek at our home grown talents at the end of 2009.

The Mail Exchange Building has been transformed for the Institute (you would have already had a peek if you were a Project Runway Australia fan) with multiple levels and its own events space. Students work is permanently on show around the halls. Take a look below for a taste of what their students have accomplished in fashion (the Institute also runs courses in Styling and Interior Design) so far.
