Bond, Shaken Not Stirred

Just a couple of months after the announcement that the "Designing 007: 50 Years Of Bond Style" exhibition is coming to Melbourne Museum on November 1, 2013, another event is being held here to celebrate 50 years of James Bond.  "Hollowood Costume: Up Late" will hold an event on May 2, 2013 at ACMI (Fed Square) for one night only to also celebrate 50 years of Bond. 

According to details on the ACMI website ( there will be music, conversations and pop-up workshops.  They will also "pay homage to the designer behind the famous gun barrel opening and his latter-day colleagues.  We will question whether the litany of Bond women are empowered or one dimensional. And do not miss Dave Kerr, cocktail master and owner of The Beaufort, who will present us with the history of the Martini and other Ian Fleming favourites."

Sounds very exciting.

ps. Lucky my wife noticed this one
