City Of Melbourne


Located at the foot of the historic Melbourne Town Hall, the Forecourt is the must-visit destination during this celebration of the city’s love for fashion.

As a welcome point before entering the Town Hall Runways, this hub of activity offers access to a series of bespoke activation and hospitality spaces for visitors to meet with friends for a pre-runway beverage and enjoy a line-up of free entertainment and photo moments.

The M/FW Information and Ticketing booth is open daily and includes a charging station so you can recharge your device.  From runways to industry talks, let us guide you through the program and curate an M/FW experience tailored to you.

Open 29 Aug – 5 Sept 11am – 10pm daily (31 Aug 11am – 5pm)
