The NGV’s latest summer blockbuster, Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse, a major Australian-exclusive retrospective of the late British fashion designer, is just about to launch. Curated in tandem with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), it unites two rich collections of the legendary, subversive designer’s works, showcasing more than 110 garments in total.
It’s the kind of thing worthy of celebrating in style. In partnership with the NGV, Broadsheet is offering you the chance to do just that.
Up for grabs are two tickets to NGV Friday Nights, which will grant you night access to Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse, alongside DJs, performances, canapes and drinks to start your weekend off right.
Stroll through the exhibition at your own pace, taking in the array of incredible garments on show alongside more than 80 artworks in this collaboration between NGV and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Afterwards, snack on English-themed dishes, including fish and chips, , cheese selections and more, and grab a drink at one of several bars.
You won’t be arriving at the exhibition hungry though. Our winner will also receive a dinner at Nomad valued at $250. Having long been one of Sydney’s top restaurants, Nomad is a welcome newcomer to the Melbourne dining scene, featuring choices spanning Ortiz anchovies and fire-roasted peppers, kingfish ceviche with avocado, finger lime and coriander crackers, Ravens Creek Farm pork cutlets, and more. For dessert, definitely try the lamington with aerated chocolate mousse, coconut sorbet, woodfired blackberries and charred grated coconut on top.
With dining and dancing done for the night, check into your hotel room at the nearby Hilton Melbourne Little Queen Street for a luxurious overnight stay. Bed down in a king-size bed and refresh in the morning with a long soak in your own rain shower.
