in the 1930s coco chanel took sailor stripes from the seven seas to the catwalk, and today down yonder is taking the trend of the french marinieres to st kilda fest! we are the proud uniform sponsors of st kilda festival - aka. the LARGEST STREET PARTY IN AUSTRALIA! what are your plans from the 5th til the 13th of feb? maybe you'll see one of the 100 live bands that are playing throughout the week? maybe you'll get laughing (and probably snorting) at a comedy show? maybe you'll take your new boyfriend to one of the many free art exhibitions and pretend you're really cultured? maybe you'll partake in a complimentary swing/salsa/hip hop class? maybe you'll learn how the hare krishna cook their veggies so damn well?maybe you'll catch a movie at the st kilda open air cinema above the seabaths? hell - maybe you'll take your mum to zumba for a laugh! or - and this is definitely my favourite part - maybe on sunday the 13th of february you'll rock along to one of the many stages and catch jebediah, hungry kids of hungary, tim FREAKING finn, muscles, tijuana cartel, our favourites stonefield (and so so so many more) playing FOR FREE! i cannot express how amazing these shows were last year - i saw yacht club djs play, it was crazy cool and one of them sailed across my head in an inflatable boat! brilliant! better than all of the live and local stuff that's going on (or maybe this is my bias talking) is the competition that we are running over the course of the festival!
