World of Wonder High Tea with Brisbane Fashion Festival

Share a moment of indulgence as you feast your eyes on the world’s rarest gems followed by a leisurely high tea with decadent treats.

This Brisbane Fashion Festival, join us in Museum of Brisbane for a tour of World of Wonder: Margot McKinney and a traditional tiered high tea inspired by the opulence and splendid colour of Margot’s designs.

Served in the Dome Gallery by established local café, Dandelion & Driftwood, each high tea stand (shared one between two) will include a selection of sweets, scones, ribbon sandwiches and of course, a pot of their specialty tea or coffee.

Take a piece of Margot’s amazing work home with a goodie bag of exhibition treasures, including a copy of the World of Wonder: Margot McKinney exhibition publication, an exclusive poster print and glasses cloth.

Secure your spot at the tea table and bask in the majesty of the opulent opals, lustrous pearls and rare gems that are featured in this exhibition.
