Everything was coming up spots, stripes, squiggles and more for the event that was Patternation. This riotous event that closed out the 2014 Melbourne Fashion Festival took a survey from the busy print pattern proud designers of the 1980's through to the current multi motif mad new kids of today. Curated by Lia Tabrah of O.T.T by Lia T fabulousness, it was a veritable who's who of patterning pundits, Ken Done, Linda Jackson, Sara Thorn, Gavin Brown, Kara Baker, Linda Searle, Jenny Bannister and on and on. Turning up the fun stakes was a Friday evening launch that saw a cavalcade of carnival colour competing amongst the appreciative, visually overloaded crowd, hell bent on a break from monotone blandness.
Unfortunately its a short season and the fun finishes at 5pm on Tuesday 1st April.
