This unique exhibition, which runs for one week only (5th-12th July 2012), showcases the collaborative talents of Sydney’s world-class chefs and fashion designers. Located on the Australian Designer Gallery Level Four, Westfield Sydney, the pop-up exhibition features five designer garments created by food, curated and styled by leading events specialist, David Grant.
