What happens when you combine Kangan Institute millinery students, graduates and high tea at The Westin? You get one fabulous perfect afternoon! I was thrilled to be invited as a guest to enjoy an indulgent high tea whilst checking out a showcase parade from Kangan Institute’s graduates and current students.

Hosted as a part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week in The Westin’s Lobby Lounge, the space was decked out with displays of millinery and piles of delectable savoury and sweet treats.

The parade featured Kangan Institute students from certificate II, III, and IV graduates. It was so exciting to see so many different ideas and techniques on show.

I adored this hat by Claire (aka Jelly Bean Princess… follow her @jellybeanprincessclaire on insta) And it was snapped up quickly by an eager buyer

Thank you to Kangan Institute for having me along for the afternoon, and the generous sponsors who provided all attendees with a gift bag
