Melbourne International Millinery Competition 2019

MIMC - the Melbourne International Millinery Convention - is an annual event for milliners around the globe to showcase their very best work. A week of workshops and speakers concludes with the competition Grand Finale which will be held in the middle of February.

On Sunday the 17th of February, you can expect to see the winning pieces showcased among over 80 entries. Decide for yourself if you agree with the judges, or form your own opinion on what should have won!

Labassa is part of the group of properties looked after by the National Trust. It was built by Judge Richard Billing in 1862 as an eight-roomed house and was expanded to feature a sweeping staircase and lead-light windows created by Ferguson and Urie - Colonial Victoria's Premier Stained Glass craftsmen.

Labassa has been featured in many TV productions including Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Picnic at Hanging Rock and Winchester amongst many others.

The tea rooms will be open in the servants quarters for visitors to try some of the best scones in Australia.

Bookings can be made via the website, by clicking here.

Time: 10:30am - 4pm
