This weekend sees a first of its kind event in Melbourne called BUFFET.

Ive tried so hard to explain what this event is about, but im struggling to do it in a short paragraph. Basically the streetwear scene in Australia is not up to par with the rest of the world, even if we all think it is. Much of lagging behind is caused by the tiring old school ways of wholesalers and retailers alike, but they can’t be entirely blamed. The main problem stems from the lack of consumers for such a fickle and expensive industry. The fight for their everyday dollar is fierce and most turn what were good intentions into bad business tactics.

This event will hopefully bring everyone that makes up the industry and scene up to par with what is going on with the rest of the world. Most of the key businesses and influencial identities from the pacific region and America will be giving talks and forum discussions about their experiences and thoughts about pretty much everything that has to do with it.

If you give a shit about street fashion or for lack of a better word ‘streetwear’, then you should check it out over the weekend.
