Fashion, and all that jazz: What to wear to Melbourne Music Week

Name a better duo than fashion and music — we’ll wait. No? Didn’t think so. Since the beginning of time, fashion and music have been intrinsically linked. From iconic costumes in film clips, to unforgettable music moments on the runways, to the arrival of the enormous festival fashion trend, they are one of those duos that are just better together. 

From Thursday 14—Sunday 23 November, Melbourne will be celebrating all things music with the 10th annual Melbourne Music Week. It’s an institution for our cultured city; a 10-day takeover comprising of 300 acts and 70 events. Naturally, fashion will play a huge role — both on the stage and in the crowd.
