AQUA FLAIR

Itching to make a splash with your resort wear? Then join the crowds at Sunset Swim Runway. Australia’s favourite swimwear labels will be bathed in a show of twilight glory at the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s inaugural swimwear parade, presented under the DCM blade at the Melbourne Museum precinct.

 

HUNGER GAMES

If you don’t have the stomach for the Longest Lunch, then Crawl ’n’ Bites – an event in the forthcoming Melbourne Food and Wine Festival – is designed to help you navigate through some of Melbourne’s best bar and restaurant destinations. Think Carlton, Richmond and city laneways. Grab your ticket now.

JUST YOUR TYPE

Look closely at the collage of images on the cover of this new book; they’re cleverly shaped by typographic fonts. Author and illustrator Maree Coote sees typography in pictures, in a kind of self-devised “letter art”. Her latest release, Spellbound, contains 120 pages of wittily interpreted Australian buildings, animals and people. B-R-I-L-L.

A MONTH OF SUNDAES

In summer, every day is sundae as far as we’re concerned. To celebrate the rest of the hot season (and the end of FebFast – soon), we’re lining up a great sugar hit of ice-cream, gelato or sundae each weekend, starting with these four.
