Flash Walk: Spirit of the Black Dress

By now it's likely that you would have heard of the group 'The Spirit of the Black Dress' (if not listen up)! The aforementioned is a collection of recent graduates committed to raising the profile of emerging talent within the fashion industry. They run an annual fashion photography exhibition, usually around Loreal Melbourne Fashion Week that showcases ten of Australia's newest designers.

Yesterday they hosted their 2010 media preview - we headed down to Melbourne's CBD to check out the action. The preview took the form of a 'Flash walk,' on the corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets. 'Flash walk' is a new term combining the recent phenomena of Flash Mob with the established fashion practise of Catwalk - simple really! Check out The Spirit of the Black Dress exhibition which runs from 12-6pm, 12-21st March at Georges on Collins, 195 Little Collins St, Melbourne. Oh and did we mention it's free?
