You won't recognise it. Little Bourke Street is being transformed into party central, with the main stage being a fashion runway. See specialty designers on display amid the pumping strains of DJ led music, along with plenty of free flowing champagne bubbles to round out the festive atmosphere.

However, the FREE Little Bourke Street fashion parade is only part of the sprawling gala being held as part of the Melbourne Fashion Week Opening Night party. Several shops and boutiques across the CBD will be offering shoppers a range of exclusive, one-night-only, in-store experiences and special offers.

Enjoy FREE the CTF Curated (Council of Textile and Fashion event) in the Old Met Shop at the Melbourne Town Hall. Here you will meet some emerging local talent, preview their labels, along with their designs, and enjoy an opportunity to purchase something new and totally unique.
