The biggest Mister Mode event yet: Mister Mode Fashion Night Market Autumn Event, 28th April 2012
On the last Saturday of April 2012, the Mister Mode Fashion Night Market Autumn event took Melbourne by a storm for it’s first event of the year. We promised the biggest event yet, filled with a large open plan warehouse, up & coming talented musicians, a bigger variety of stalls and fashion, a very special innovative performance, a digital photobooth, a bigger bar, food & treats, and a range of sponsors so that all Mode troops could walk away with in a special Mode gift bag.
The Mister Mode Fashion Night Market autumn event started a little early than normal this year with it’s doors opening at 3pm, catching the keen day shoppers who were looking for something different. Aldo Rumantir, a soulful acoustic singer and songwriter graced us as an opening act to fill the room with sweet melodies and enchanting tunes.
The day progressed with more keen shoppers and new faces to discover what Mister Mode is about. As an upcoming Melbourne lifestyle & culture event, many attendees had no idea what to expect. And from what they said, Mister Mode blew them away.
Come peak hour time, the entire warehouse was packed and the room was bustling with hundreds of people. Davy Simony who had performed at our Summer event, tantalized the crowd once again with his original folk-soul melodies and Andrew Lim, a Melbourne artist whom you will soon hear on the radio, entertained the crowd with his acoustic pop-rock tunes.
When tummies started rumbling towards the end of the day, all attendees could find Massive Wieners to fill their grumbling stomachs and a sweet treat for desert. As a latest addition to the Mister Mode event, we invited creative food designers to wow our Mode troopers with chocolate designed treats and assorted macaroons.
To follow on the night, we had the well-loved country-blues band ‘The Ugly Kings’ and rising reality-TV star ‘Laura Loe’ performing a set that mesmerized a live crowd. Throughout the day, we even had gift raffles to ensure that everyone stood a chance to win a piece from Cleansui, Adixions Chocolates, Massive Wieners, Time Out Melbourne and Mister Mode. Not to forget our special photobooth app, Modest, who captured street style outfits of Mode fashionites all day.
The special highlight of the night was of course a performance by Chris Vik (a.k.a Synaecide) whose performance entailed creating live electronic music using the Xbox Kinect and hand movement. Eventhough his innovative style of performing is still a new development to the general public, he managed to hold the room to a standstill by literally making music, with the control of his hand movements in front of the Xbox Kinect.
So, the first Mister Mode event of 2012 proved to be a grand success! With all our Mode troopers bringing friends along for this experience special to Melbourne’s lifestyle culture, this is definitely an event not to be missed. With word already coming from interstate of friends who are keen to make the trip down to Mebourne for our next event, it’s time to keep a clear schedule for August as Mister Mode will be back, a bigger and better experience each time onwards.
A massive big thank you to our Sponsors: Time Out Melbourne, Cleansui, Massive Wieners, Adixions Chocolates, Modest Iphone App and Palmers for providing all our Mode Troopers a special something to walk away with.
Also a bigger shout-out to all our stallholders, musicians and Mode Troopers who came on the night to be apart of this one of a kind experience.
