It’s Fashion Week in Melbourne this week so dust off your prettiest frock and shine your favourite shoes as Miss Green invites Melbourne to her inaugural Garden Party!Â Miss Green\’s Garden Party is an eco-minded fashion event that will be held in the lush surrounds of The Willows and is part of the official schedule for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 2009.
Local established and emerging designers have been invited to take part in a fashion show and design an outfit worthy of the Spring Racing Carnival exclusively for the event. The difference is they must be created using only eco-friendly materials.

The dream designer line-up includes Jenny Bannister, Nicolangela, BODY by Dainy Sawatzky, Miss Lyndel Yeo, Anna Campbell, Alexi Freeman, Sideshow Design, Leonard St, Made In Donald, Davis Eyes, K.B.A.D, Sara Victoria, Lady Boutique, Tullia Jack, Eva Huynh, Joolz, Hopeless and Hair Fascinators.
Tickets are just $35 and include organic wine on arrival, afternoon tea, goodie bags, fashion show and the opportunity to bid for your very own unique â€˜green\’ designer outfit.
