You’re invited to Lindsay’s most dreamlike, fanciful event to date: our couture gala in The Windsor’s Grand Ballroom

Last year, we found ourselves on the outskirts of Paris at Lesage and Lemarié—two of the ateliers behind the exquisite hand embroidery and flower making for couturiers such as Chanel, Dior and Givenchy. That visit turned into one of our feature stories for our upcoming issue (launching soon!), so we couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate than by hosting a couture gala in the Windsor’s Grand Ballroom. Imagine a Lindsay version of The Great Gatsby meets the Met Gala.

There will be a honey-themed menu, as a nod to one of our other stories in the upcoming issue where Stanislava Pinchuk and Nic Dowse (of local beekeeping collective Honey Fingers) take us to Morocco’s Honey Highway. The Windsor have collaborated with Honey Fingers to create a dazzling spread: silverware dripping with honeycomb, every shade of honey slowly melting and perfectly paired cheeses. Then there’s the ultimate night cap: Julia Busuttil Nishimura’s famed burnt honey and thyme ice cream from her cookbook Ostro. And, of course, we’ll keep you refreshed throughout the evening with drinks courtesy of Yering Station winery, Sample brewery and Capi sparkling.

When: Friday 18 October, 8–11pm
Where: The Windsor’s Grand Ballroom, 111 Spring Street Melbourne
Dress code: couture. In celebration of artisan made fabric, dress up in your favourite piece of beading, embroidery, lacework, pleating or florals. Here’s some inspiration…

Tickets are $55 and include refreshments, cheese, honeycomb, ice-cream and a copy of the newly launched issue of Lindsay (valued at $25). Invite your friends via Facebook here. It’s going to be a real treat.
