As Winter draws to a close, Spring arrives with its entourage of exciting events. This year Melbourne Fashion Week will be in full swing from 28 August to 5 September, showcasing the best international and local talent of the fashion industry. In this C&G blog, we guide you through our most anticipated events, exhibitions and forums.

Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out

It’s Vogue Australia’s 60th birthday and that only means one thing: a full day shopping festival of exclusive offers, runways and live music performances! Grab your girlfriends, partner or family and head to Melbourne CBD on Thursday 29 August. There will be plenty of offers from over 400 retailers, a Spin-to-Win wheel in Little Bourke Street, and fashion workshop in David Jones! Plus a little extra VIP treatment for those who are American Express card members.
