Vanishing Elephant’s Melbourne store will host a string of in-store celebrations this weekend as the team blow out the candles for its first birthday.

Head to Albert Coates Lane this Saturday and Sunday to enjoy a beer with the staff and receive a free gift with every purchase.

The store will be dressed up in its birthday best for the event and to add to the festivities, Vanishing Elephant will be unveiling its newest collection The King. Think floral prints, colour and denim for the warmer months.

Since its inception in 2009, the Australian label has garnered a reputation for designing quirky, modern and stylish staples. Breathing a fresh aesthetic into classic designs, Vanishing Elephant has achieved a lot in its short life.

And with its designs hanging on the racks of stores throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Asia, New Zealand and Australia – as well as online stores such as ASOS – there is a lot to be merry about.

A Broadsheet favourite that is contributing to Australia’s growing international fashion presence, Vanishing Elephant has proven a fantastic addition to the Melbourne retail scene and we look forward to seeing what lies ahead for the young label.
