Forever Curious is about uncovering the stories that are all around us, just waiting to be discovered. Curiosity doesn’t kill the cat – instead it’s rewarded! The reward for those who have chosen to scratch the surface have been unique experiences in iconic Melbourne environments.
There have been four Forever Curious activations to date (here’s my review of the last one called ‘Just Graffiti’) and the latest one was themed ‘Just a Tailor’.
Last Wednesday an outdoor ‘dressing room’ was set up with mirrors, clothes racks and mannequins outside the entrance to the MSFW Hub at City Square. A tailor wearing a black ‘Forever Curious’ shirt appeared to be measuring and altering clothes for a woman.
People who chatted to the tailor about the clues seeded in Wednesday’s editorial and social media were rewarded with a double pass to a MSFW Runway show or were selected as one of three people to be given the VIP MSFW treatment – to be escorted to the Queen’s Dressing Room inside the Melbourne Town Hall to meet two MSFW designers Jolet and Kuwaii over afternoon tea.
Each of the three lucky chosen then had a piece of fashion custom designed for them to keep!
Check out this video of the amazing experience with the designers and winners.
