The Mean, the Median and the Mister Mode

Well Mister Mode has done it again.

The Melbourne music, social and fashion scenes were sent into overdrive on 10 December 2011 with the Mister Mode Fashion Night Market, which went off as per usual without hitch.

The Market took-over Oak Place Warehouse in South Yarra, a very cool and industrial grunge-come-fashion chic venue that was more than accommodating for the stallholders and shoppers that filed through and loitered in the warehouse throughout the course of the six-hour event.

Retailers and independent designers of the new, the old, vintage and the far out gathered to sell their wares and encourage those of us that gag for fashion to expand our already bursting wardrobes.

No one complained, that’s for sure.

I bought five new pieces to add to my collections, ranging from a 80s pleather number, reminiscent of a Beverley Hills Cop movie scene, a blue blazer, very unique tattered webbed black scarfe, a vintage military jacket – hot, and a few accessories here and there.

Not too bad for a night’s work.

The unique selling point of Mister Mode is not only that it is an amazing addition to Melbourne’s social and fashion scenes, but it also provides punters – or Troopers as they’re affectionately called by Tish and the Mister Mode management – with alcoholic options from a licensed bar set-up – stocked and sponsored by Rekorderlig and 28Black – food provided by friends and colleagues and live music, which this time around included a solo act by Davy Simony, Rock Blues trio The Ugly Kings and the funkiest funk cats in town, the Kujo Kings, not to mention a vocal powerhouse up-and-comer, Laura Loe.

We partied and shared a festive beverage and conversation with the likes of the one and only Tish Tambakau, founder and chief executive of the Mister Mode Fashion Night Market, Ilker Kale and Christopher Rivera of Fashion Muuse, Irish Rivera from Stylezilla, designers Matias Mena and Mughni Che Din, Calvin Chong of Vanity Press, Micah Gianelli and Jesse Maricic from Raww Blog and J-Dawg World, Iyan Difuntoram from iy.d Style and the tantalising Meagan Harding from Style Farm.

Tish was one of three who founded the Market initially as part of a University project. Her penchant for all things fashion and style overtook and allowed Mister Mode to burgeon outwards as an entirely unique undertaking.

You can hear a SYN radio interview she did recently here.

Mister Mode caters to the music, social and fashion scenes of Melbourne and brings them all together in a wholesome, social, entertaining and fun evening, which provides punters with the opportunity to network, catch-up with friends and shop to their heart’s content for low prices and high savings.

It’s a definite win and a definite testament to the Melbourne fashion scene.
