Another week, another festival. This time it’s Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (1 – 6 September) and despite the fact that it’ll be my first week in my new job, my diary is packed with events:

There are many more events on during Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, two of of which I’m going to mention:

  • A shout out to my beautiful and ever-stylish friend Alex, who is the brains behind Eco Fashionista, a new online boutique for luxury eco fashion from Australia and around the world. She’s a fashionista who likes to live green, so she’ll be at Eco Luxe Fashion Expose (ELFE) on Wednesday 2 September, one of the people bringing eco, sustainable fashion beyond dreadlocks and tie-dyed hemp.  During ELFE there will a special prize draw to win a beautiful Cylk dress from her boutique (valued $500) and the first 250 visitors will receive an Eco Fashionista discount voucher in their goodie bag. Tickets for ELFE are available via 0421 411 114, and Eco Fashionista opens it doors on Wednesday! For MEL: HOT OR NOT readers, you can receive 15% off your first order if you enter the discount code ELFE at checkout before 14 October 2009.

  • You’ve heard me rave about Thread Den before and on Friday 4 September and Saturday 5 September, the Thread Den ladies are hosting the Killer Queen catwalk parade. Tickets are $12 (plus booking fee) at the Thread Den shop plus you go into the draw to win a pre-show makeover and dinner at Sosta Cucina, bar tab at the after party and accommodation for two. I hope they’re showing a new range from Oh Bluebird, as lots of people have been admiring my Lucy in the Sky dress.
