Dress Code: Melbourne Noir à la mode

In the style and esprit de corps of Miss Phryne Fisher, the Great Gatsby and Sin City, join us in celebrating the burgeoning world of crime literature with our theme, Melbourne Noir à la mode. Dress to impress.

Download our beautiful Gala Dinner posters for display in your office or lunchroom! There is a version resplendant in navy and gold, and another suitable for black-and-white printing. Both can be printed at A4 and A3 sizes.

Mural Hall

Originally designed by Sidney Myer for private fashion parades and other exclusive events, the Art Deco style Mural Hall is a hidden treasure in Melbourne and will be the scene of the Gala Dinner.

It’s a stunning room – named for the beautifully painted murals on the walls. And the food will be just as magnificent!

Theme: Melbourne Noir à la mode

Melbourne in the 1920s: Crime city. Gangster city. Sly grog. Dark streets and dim laneways are riddled with crime, drugs and prostitution. It’s gritty, it’s glamorous, it’s fashionably Melbourne!

Think slicked-back hair styles, shiny Oxfords, two-tone brogues, flapper dresses with daring hemlines, (faux) furs and feathers, long silky gloves, lavishly extravagant evening suits … and prepare to dance the night away!
