As an RMIT alumna it was my great pleasure to spend this past Wednesday evening with fellow alumni for the in conversation event that was Celebrating Melbourne and RMIT fashion with Melbourne Fashion Festival CEO and alumnus Mr Graeme Lewsey. It was a wonderful insight into what exactly occurs behind the scenes of one of Melbourne’s biggest events as well as shed light on how Mr Lewsey has carved a very successful career in this competitive and creative industry from his humble beginnings as an RMIT design graduate….and just coming off the week that was Fashion Week in town the conversation piece was perfect timing.

It was gratifying to know that my Alma Mater has not only nurtured but launched the careers of many a creative, including entrepreneur Natalie Bloom of Bloom Cosmetics and fashion designer Toni Maticevski who were both in the crowd … with Toni actually helping launch the Alumni’s inaugural digital magazine. It makes me proud to call RMIT my academic home.
