Where To Find The Fashion Set Wining / Dining During MBFWA

MBFWA is well and truly underway, and while you may not have a coveted FROW seat, that doesn’t mean you can’t rub shoulders with the style set. If you’re a budding influencer or just really love your threads and wanna be across what everyone is wearing, your best bet is to hit up all the lush spots the in-the-know’s are refuelling at.

Over on the Aus. Technology Park side of main MBFWA site Carriageworks, this cafe has a stellar rep for delicious meals and outstanding coffee, so although it’s a ten min trek from the main MBFWA hub, it’s a bit of a haven for fashion folks to recharge between shows.

The Eveleigh Fratelli will hands down be the place to grab post-MBFWA dinner – their pasta and pizza offering is renowned in Sydney, and they do a mean Aperol Spritz.
This too-cute joint specialises in tea, so everyone will be flocking for their Turmeric Chai Latte’s. They also do a mean spread of brekky, so expect to see fashion editor’s galore speedily scoffing Chia Bowls while scrolling their daily events.
Given the hotel is the official MBFWA partner for attendees, you can bet your money you’ll be sipping champers right next to a high-falutin’ fashion guy/gal if you head here after hours and take a seat at their v chic Lo Lounge. Dress the part and you might even get papped yourself.

This sunny little cafe is a short walk from Carriageworks, and does some great vego ops for punters who forgo their meats.  They also have a solid rep for good coffee thanks to their Little Marionette bean supply.

We can’t mention where the fash pack eat/drink without the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge. Don’t bother trying your luck getting in – entry is exclusively for VIPs, who’ll be treated with canapes, coffees, and drinks – all on the house.
