Melbourne has been incredibly fortunate this August to have seen some gorgeous sun-filled days, which has in turn, made me super excited for all the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week events soon to be upon us. I have been dying to see what the stunning QV Hideaway transformation will look like… A magical forest escape in the heart of QV Square, created especially for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week… How amazing does this sound??

I was lucky enough to experience this “Mother Nature take-over” yesterday afternoon for myself, at the QV Hideaway VIP Launch event. It truly is a gorgeous escape and a must-see when you are visiting the city during MSFW and right through until September 21. The QV Hideaway will be a mecca for all things fashion during MSFW, including fashion parades, complimentary beauty make-overs, workshops, VIP events and free wifi. The perfect retreat to unwind in or get some work done in between MSFW events. Ohh and the other thing I’m loving is that QV is offering $19 all day parking and other parking promotions during MSFW – which is amazing because we all know how expensive city parking can be!

If you were going to check out the QV Hideaway at any stage during MSFW, I would say that his Friday 29th August will be the perfect day to see and experience it coming to life. It is the Opening Night of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2014, so there will be an exciting buzz about town! As well as the late night shopping event, QV will be offering exclusive deals to all of their retailers. You may even get snapped by a street style photographer or two, so be sure to dress your best!
