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:
- Fashion at Altitude S/S 09/10 runway parade at Melbourne’s GPO on Wednesday 2 September;
- returning to Melbourne’s GPO on the same night for the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week VIP fashion parade;
- The Spirit of the Black Dress exhibition at Georges; and
- Marc Jacobs on Film at ACMI.
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, firstname.lastname@example.org and elfeevents.blogspot.com. 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.
