Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2014

A new look Melbourne Fashion Festival is set to ‘AWAKEN OUR SENSES’ in 2014. Now boasting a new naming rights partner, Virgin Australia, the three-year deal signals a new direction for the festival and a major push for interstate and international visitors to what is the largest consumer fashion festival in the world.

The catchcry:     ‘ SEE .  FEEL .  REACT .  ‘    was launched as the theme for V A M F F‘s 2014 festival. In true Tommy Collins fashion we took this vision and sort to create a night of culinary sensory sensation. A night even Heston Blumenthal – Renè Redzepi – Paul Bocuse would be happy put their name to. The Tommy Collins team wanted to respect each and every sense to make the festival launch a delicious, fun and memorable evening. See our handy work below:

SIGHT - First bite is with the eyes, by starting the evening with savoury desserts and finishing the evening with dessert savouries.

SMELL - Incorporating the use of atomisers and smoke guns.

TOUCH - Incorporating explosive textures and hidden poping candy.

SOUND - Enhancing the flavour through the use of sound.

TASTE - Amazing Tommy Collins Canapés…
