Style Melbourne

Raising the (Festival) Bar

Is there anything more sophisticated than taking in a runway show by the water and then slipping onto a barstool to discuss your next (Australian designer) “investment” over a martini or three?

Sidle on up to the Festival Bar – presented by Westfield Doncaster – during LMFF and you could also see your stylish self emblazoned on screens set up at sites across the city. Their “Faces @ the Festival” project combines a live photo booth with an exhibition as Melbournian’s personal style is celebrated, captured and displayed for all to see. The exhibition of fashionable festival-goers will then be broadcast live at Westfield Doncaster during LMFF (and also on Wednesday 24th as they have a special VIP shopping event happening).

I managed to have a little fun with LMFF Director Karen Webster and asked what drink she would want to be spotted with at the bar. Her diplomatic answer; “Chambord poured over fresh raspberries topped up with chilled Champagne Devaux… hmmm need one now!” My recommendation would be an espresso martini to keep the energy up for all the late night fashion shows.

Refresh at the Festival Bar at Woolshed Pub, 161 Harbour Esplanade, in the Docklands (right next to the L’Oreal Paris Runway shows). The bar is open from 5pm to 11pm each day from Monday 15th March until Saturday 20th March.
