Silhouette was a jewellery runway event featuring a trio of independent Melbourne jewellers; Kick in thee Eye, Sacrefulx and Psychic Desert, held at the Industrial School Building at the Abbotsford Convent on 03/05/2020. Performed under Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival [VAMFF] 2020, these artists came together for one night to individually showcase new collections and concept based pieces that redefined the traditions of adornment. Featuring dancers as models, an opera singer and a live string accompaniment composed by Modulate Music, this showcase applied an artistic lens to the concept of the fashion show, inviting our audience to re-think jewellery’s place on a runway.
