Beautiful mural in the Star Lyric Theatre
Rone, one of Melbourne’s most prominent street artists held his first solo exhibition in two years at the historic Star Lyric Theatre in Collingwood, Oct 14-23rd, 2016.
Known for his mural portraits of striking female faces adorning large scale buildings or in decaying spaces, the term ‘hauntingly beautiful’, whilst overused, perfectly sums up Rone’s work.
Rone exhibition space
Never was an exhibition space more fitting than the Art Nouveau building, Star Lyric Theatre which is due for demolition soon after the exhibition closes. A fitting tribute to a beautiful derelict building.

Aurelio Costarella, Runway 3
Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival coloured the town stylish once again, on an uncharacteristically warm week in Melbourne.
On the new site, at the charming heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building. Old world charm comes at a price – no air-conditioning, so some of the Autumn/Winter styling had to be altered to suit the rising temperature.
I covered the runway action, for the seventh consecutive year. Here are some of my highlights from Runway 2 and 3. Full gallery on Flickr.

The Dresses by Tae Gon Kim
White Night once again illuminated the streets of Melbourne for the forth year year, attracting approximately 580,000 people. The all night program of light projections and entertainment saw a few changes from previous years. Major attractions were spread from Federation Square to The Royal Exhibition Building to ease congestion. While a couple of the illuminations had previously been exhibited at Sydney’s Vivid festival
, there were some attractions that were distinctly Melbourne. This is what I saw.

Brigitte commanding the stage at So Frenchy So Chic
Werribee Mansion once again played gracious host to the annual So Frenchy So Chic festival in Melbourne. With an eclectic line-up featuring Soviet Suprem, Lou Doillon, Brigitte and Hindi Zahra, it was a fine day in the sun.
I have photographed this event since its infancy at the Prince Bandroom, and for the ninth time I captured the French festivities.
