This week I was fortunate enough to find myself in Melbourne at the same time as ‘The House of Dior’ exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. I’d seen details of the exhibition online earlier in the year, and lamented the fact that it wasn’t coming to Perth, as it was an exclusive collaboration between NGV and Dior to celebrate the houses seventieth anniversary. So I was super thrilled that I ended up in Melbourne for a few days with my partner Alex while it was open, so I didn’t miss seeing it!
There was so many beautiful pieces (over 140 designs!), all arranged in the most magical way… Walking through the gallery amongst all of the elaborate couture garments was a very special moment for me, and something I feel so lucky to have experienced. Alex really enjoyed the exhibition too despite him not being a total fashion lover like me, so if you have a boyfriend/partner/friend who isn’t necessarily into fashion it’s definitely still something they will find interesting to check out! I snapped lots of photos while I was there to share with you all, you can take a peek at them below 🙂
You may have seen on my Instagram that my partner Alex and I recently went on a fun little road trip along part of the Great Ocean Road, a few hours outside of Melbourne. For one of the two nights that we were out on our adventure driving a new Holden Astra along picturesque coastline, we stayed at a colourful place I just have to share with you all – Kookaburra Cottages! This place, located in Apollo Bay, is a rainbow coloured dream… I know that you’re going to want to add it onto your list of places to visit once you read about it and see my photos below! 🙂
