Spring is so close that every sun-deprived Melburnian can just about taste it. There’s a buzz about town as the weather warms up, and a lot of it is to do with Melbourne Fashion Week.

Even if you’re not in the blogger set, there are a bunch of stylin’ things to do that will make you feel like you are – and many of them won’t cost you a cent.

Here’s just a snippet of the free fashion events happening across the city during the first eight days of spring.

Shopping runway

Emporium Melbourne will stop traffic with its open-air runway show on Little Bourke Street. The opening night celebration will let punters get up close to creations from designers including Dion Lee, Camilla & Marc and Scanlan Theodore. After the show, shop the looks with exclusive offers as a part of Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out.

Style school

See what the future of fashion holds with the RMIT Student Designer Exhibition. The honours’ program final-year students will showcase their designs, along with the methods and approaches to their work.

Indigenous creatives

This striking show is all about empowering indigenous designers from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Island nations. The Global Indigenous Avant Garde Showcase will include daring works by designers including Albertini, Cheremaine Castle, David Roil and Fusing Sands.

Ethical labels

Get sustainable with the Ethical Clothing Showcase. The labels doing the right thing for humanity and the planet will show their newest collections – proving that sustainability is so on-trend.

Independent innovators

Designers and artists across disciplines present their work across the week in the Creative Collective exhibition. Five spaces will showcase work by designers, jewellers and florists, with installations rotating in each day.
