Rehab 101: the rest of MelbourneNOW…

22 03 2014

The Gang and Granny finally caught up with the rest of MelbourneNOW over at Fed Square. And have to say that, yes, it was a mixed bag, but there was plenty of wow factor to make up for any short comings.

And then there was the bonus of the fabulous Jules – again!! She sure gets around that girl…

We loved the Hotham St Ladies decor – a wonderful pastiche of royal buttercream icing, modelling past, confectionary, props and general tat…

 

The classic 70's dinner party from memory!!

The install must have been a nightmare.

We rather liked Paul Knight’s treatment of his Type C photographs…

A Stygian room if ever there was one. We loved it – tickled our morbid fancies big time. Plenty more where that came from here.

Granny and the Gang, replete, repaired immediately to Y&J for our customary bevie with dear Chloe
