Melbourne Metal Collective ‘Cave’ Launch
Founded in 2011, the Melbourne Metal Collective (MMC) is an organisation established to promote jewelry design by bringing together in collaborative force the best Melbourne designers. Nationally, MMC curate group exhibitions, fashion week showrooms and pop-up stores.
Their first event for 2012 coincided with L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival and was simply entitled ‘Cave’. A space in the popular Curtin House (located on Swanston Street in Melbourne’s CBD) was transformed into a ‘Cave’ of wonders, with jewelry from 7 of Melbourne’s most promising jewelers on display in vintage cabinets alongside various other curiosities that inspired the designers.
The designers included Alexandra Blak, Estelle Dévé, Hamish Munro, Henson, Maripossa, o.t.t By lia t and Young Hunting.
The launch night of ‘Cave’ attracted many industry folks who were in town for LMFF. Stolen Rum was on hand to lubricate these folks and ensure a warm glow into the night.
