Given that Vogue Festival recently announced it’s set to turn its two-day celebration into a three-day extravaganza, we thought it best to help you fit in all the fashion, fun and food the event has to offer with a guide on what to do, see and shop in Adelaide this October.
Yes, you read that correctly. Presented in partnership with Vogue Australia, Rundle Mall, the City of Adelaide and the South Australian Tourism Commission, Vogue Festival 2019 is slated to take over Rundle Mall and the East End from Thursday October 17 to Saturday October 19.
On top of that, for the very first time, Vogue Festival has invited GQ Australia to join in on the celebration. Meaning that whether it is fashion parades and pop-ups, or street parties and live music, there is even more to take part in this year. To make sure you don’t miss a thing, scroll on to familiarise yourself with everything the event has to offer in 2019.
