Alternative Fashion by Circa Nocturna

For those who favour alternative fashion, Circa Nocturna is the one event that cannot be missed during the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. This year’s event was as unusual and infamously different as only Circa can be, however this was particularly significant as it marks the end of the traditional showcase of Australian subculture fashion, and will now be replaced with smaller boutique based previews throughout the year.

“Automobile polo or Auto polo was a motorsport invented in the United States with rules and equipment similar to equestrian polo but using automobiles instead of horses. The sport was popular at fairs, exhibitions and sports venues across the United States and several areas in Europe from 1911 until the late 1920s; but it was dangerous and carried the risk of injury and death to the participants and spectators”. – Wikipedia.
