See a curated winter collection of couture coats and designer knits – including pieces from Prue Acton and Max Mara – as models strut through the historic arcade.

Late last year, the National Trust of Australia opened a dedicated boutique, Vault, in the CBD’s iconic Block Arcade; it’s now home to hard-to-find fabrics, haberdashery, vintage fashion and since-lost designer collections dating back to the 1800s.

Now it’s taking over the arcade’s mosaic floors and grandiose rotunda for the second in its series of Lunchtime Runways, where models will show off a curated selection of vintage and designer pieces during a midday fashion show.

This time around, Vault is spotlighting archival pieces from labels and fashion houses like Prue Acton, Max Mara, Zanko and Emilio Pucci, ranging from voluminous coats and intricate knitwear to cardigans and wool dresses.

Lunchtime visitors to the arcade can watch the show and stick around to shop at Vault or any of The Block Arcade’s boutique stores.
