Every year the calls for increased diversity and inclusivity on the runways of fashion weeks around the world get louder and louder. This year, Melbourne Fashion Week is bringing inclusivity to the catwalk with runways and pop-up shops celebrating diversity of culture, gender expression and more. 

Here are four events bringing inclusivity to Melbourne Fashion Week 2021. 

Melbourne Fashion Week 2021 will run from November 15 to 21. See the full program here

Four events to attend at Melbourne Fashion Week

Plus-size fashion enthusiasts will love the Rialto Melbourne Dining Runway. Featuring Harlow and renowned plus-size model Suzie Stevens, the Rialto Melbourne Dining Runway is the place to go to see size inclusivity on the runway. 

Other labels featured include: Collective Closets, Coreprêt, Joslin, Kuwaii, Micky In The Van, Pfeiffer, Torannce, We are Kindred and Vow Studio.

Food and fashion come together for a runway and dining event not to be missed. 

Returning for another year, the Modest Fashion Runway is a unique event presenting contemporary fashion brands and modest options on the runway followed by a panel discussion with leading industry creatives. 

This event allows established and emerging designers the opportunity to showcase their looks direct to their target audience. It also allows the opportunity to demonstrate the versatility of modest fashion.


Streaming live from New York, the Non-Gendered and Unisex Apparel webcast will discuss defining differences and goals for unisex and gender-neutral apparel. Presented by Holmesglen Institute and global fashion innovations company Alvanon, this live stream is an opportunity for those wanting to understand how 3D technology can support fitting and sizing to ensure customer satisfaction.
