    Spring Into Fashion For City's Week Of Glamour

    Every September, Melbourne's Spring Fashion Week gives retailers, designers and models a chance to put their work on show before the public and the fashion industry.

    This fantastic event has something for everyone. Here you can see the latest clothing, accessories and designs from the city’s top designers. Many top designers sponsor runway events to promote their brands, and business partnerships often form between brands, models and designers.

    During the week there are also workshops for anyone who wants to develop their career in the fashion industry as a designer, photographer or model.

    The week begins on Friday 1 September with a full night of fashion, shopping and entertainment. Event partner Vogue Australia presents Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out, with hundreds of retailers offering exclusive specials and in-store experiences across the city. Little Bourke Street will be transformed into a spectacular open-air runway for a fashion parade.

    Shops and boutiques across the city’s retail precincts, from Melbourne Central to Collins Street, will be abuzz with specially curated retail offers, activations and entertainment.

    Ethical Clothing Australia, working with local textile, clothing and footwear companies towards a more transparent and accountable garment industry, presents a showcase of designs by leading ethical fashion labels.
