Inside Out Festival

The best food and fashion that the Brickworks has to offer

Inside Out Festival

The weather's getting warmer, the days are getting longer and Gold Coast festivals are back in full swing. From food and fashion to health and beauty, the Coast is alive and buzzing with a variety of festivals and events to welcome in Spring. Hosted every year in early September (this year it was on the 10th), the Brickwork's Inside Out event was certainly no exception - Showcasing the best of the Brickworks' food, fashion, health and beauty, it certainly wasn't a day to miss!

The morning started with a lavish VIP brunch at Spendelove Bistro & Bar, where we were treated to a variety of gourmet samples, with everything from Sashimi to Burgers and Brekky Pies on the morning's menu. Of course, there was no shortage of coffee, with expertly trained Barista's on hand to cater to our every coffee need. We were even treated to gorgeous morning Mamosa's, guaranteed to start the morning off with a bang!

Although the festival started officially at ten o'clock, the music was pumping and the food was ready well beforehand, with many people showing up early to get in early! Showcasing food from many of the Brickworks' wonderful cafes including Spendelove, Providore, The Standard Market Company and many more, there was plenty of food (and wine!) to keep you happy all day long. Personally I couldn't make it past the Sashimi, but Spendelove's Asperol Spritzer's sure impressed as well!

Of course, food and alcohol weren't the only things captivating crowds that day. With live music, great deals and even puppy yoga sessions going right throughout the day, we couldn't help but fall in love with everything the Brickwork's has to offer. We were even treated to free flower crown-making sessions, which matched perfectly with their Spring-time flower photo wall! Seriously, bring that camera. It's the perfect selfie spot.

But per usual, they saved the best until last - The fashion show. Starting at 2pm, the Brickwork's fashion show delighted on-lookers with a sneak peak into this Spring's latest trends, showcasing a wide variety of outfits from some their boutique stores. Outfits perfect for the beach or for events were showcased this year, with loose, flowing fabric in trend! Perfect for the Spring weather.

At the end of the day, Inside Out could never have been the success it was without the hard work of everyone involved. From providing the puppies for puppy yoga and the clothing for the fashion show to ensuring that the food and alcohol were in supply all day, Inside Out and everyone involved truly made this the perfect way to welcome in the new Season. Bring on Summer!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
