Experience a woodland forest at inner-city shopping centre QV. For the much of September, QV Square will be transformed into a forest hideaway to become the official venue of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The Hideaway will remain open for another fortnight after Spring Fashion Week concludes, offering a myriad of ways for shoppers to get creative or simply relax.

Hot on the heels of QV's winter Tropical Retreat, the space will boast an enchanted tree, tulips, and a forest café. A drawcard is the giant birds nest to be used as furniture - which will probably not look too different from the weird hairstyles favoured by the fashion world. It is free to be in the forest space, which is open for the entirety of QV's opening hours over the three week period, but some specific events do have a price.
The Hideaway is not just a shopper sanctuary to relax with a cup of coffee. It will also feature free hair and makeup consultations and free makeovers. String garden workshops from florist Flower Temple and cocktail making classes will also feature.
