LAVAZZA AT VIRGIN AUSTRALIAN MELBOURNE FASHION FESTIVAL
Larger Than Life were engaged to bring the Lavazza brand to life at VAMFF, Melbourne's premier annual fashion festival at the Melbourne Exhibition Building.
During the 2017 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival, Lavazza teamed up with renowned Melbourne dessert chef Darren Purchese of Burch & Purchese to launch the Lavazza Café in The Plaza. Darren, created five bespoke desserts that were sold exclusively at the Lavazza Café alongside four new coffee-tails for the week long celebration of fashion. Lavazza also partnered with Melbourne illustrators Santiago Sunbird to create the colourful design wrapped around the giant Lavazza cup and Café, which became a meeting point for guests to come together pre, and post show.
