Our kinda merch.

Words by

Anastasia McInerney

We love us some merch. Especially when it’s of the exclusive, would-actually-wear kind. 

For the first time ever, Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival has teamed up with two Australian designers to create exclusive merch for the Festival. 

The collab sees designs from By Johnny and Thurley across two clutches in striking prints. 

Illustrations in blue watercolour covers Thurley's design, an homage to the label's approach to modern femininity. 

The By Johnny clutch boasts a bold star print, as featured across the designer’s Autumn collection, Stellar.

The clutches can be pre-ordered from Ticketek ahead of the shows, but they’ll also be available at the Box Office from March 14 to 19.
