The Bendigo Art Gallery has hosted some exquisite fashion exhibitions in recent years, such as The White Wedding Dress: 200 Years of Wedding Fashions Exhibition and as part of this year's Melbourne Fashion Festival, the gallery is hosting the anticipated Grace Kelly: Style Icon exhibition.

This fashion exhibition will feature three decades of Kelly's most memorable gowns - both onscreen and off screen. Grace Kelly: Style Icon is organised by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco and will be displayed exclusively at the Bendigo Art Gallery. Tickets for this exhibition are now on sale.

Public Lectures and Fashion Industry Forums
In between the glitz and glamour of the Melbourne Fashion Festival, there are the 'serious' Australian fashion industry issues and as part of this year's festival there are several 'insider' events being held.

Highlights include a Marketing Breakfast, Business Seminar and a three part Industry Forum.

Tickets for these various events are currently on sale through Ticketek.
