The next generation of Melbourne architects and designers head to MPavilion to unveil some very unique works—and you’re invited. Following last year’s ‘Wearing the city’ exercise that focused on iconic Melbourne exteriors (including ACCA, Melbourne Recital Centre and RMIT’s Swanston Academic Building), a new group of talented Monash University Art, Design and Architecture students has been hard at work translating similarly notable local interiors into wearable forms—experimenting with pleats, wraps, drapes, stitches, folds and tucks, and testing which materials work best with the body’s movements.

Join the students for presentation night on Saturday 14 November as they show off the silhouettes, shapes and structures of their labour. Inspect the designs and make a mental note of your favourite before judges Callum Morton, Cate Hall and Miriam Borcherdt deliberate over, and then announce, the winner.

Without further ado, allow us to introduce the teams for 2015!
