The annual black-tie NGV Gala returns this February to celebrate the launch of the gallery’s summer blockbuster exhibition, Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto. The event is Melbourne’s biggest party of the year, with previous guest lists including Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman.

Tickets are sold out online, but we’ve saved two for you and a friend through our new membership program, Broadsheet Access. You could walk the red carpet before an exclusive viewing of the exhibition, then be dazzled by an evening of fine food, fashion, live performances and DJ sets from a yet-to-be-revealed line-up. Past NGV Galas have seen performances from Grammy Award-winning duo Salt-N-Pepa and Australian favourite Troye Sivan.

For your chance to win, sign up to Broadsheet Access and tell us in 25 words or less: how do you think Chanel has influenced Melbourne style today? If you miss out, we’re also giving away double passes to Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto.

Broadsheet Access members get special tables at busy restaurants, tickets to exclusive events and discounts on food, coffee, brand offers and more.
