In a Melbourne first, QV Melbourne, has stayed true to its unique and eclectic style by building the QV Melbourne Hideaway – an enchanting woodland sanctuary complete with lofty trees, vibrant tulips, an enchanted tree and a specially crafted giant birds nest as an official venue of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.

Featuring a range of activities, the QV Square will be redecorated in a way never seen in this space before. Kicking off on Friday 29th August, the QV Hideaway will open to the public where the entire shopping precinct will be opened late with exclusive deals for all!


The events continue throughout September with a specially curated salon show on Friday 5 September, showcasing some of QV’s best retailers including Incu, Vanishing Elephant, Obus and M Dreams, not to mention free hair workshops to have you ready for the Spring Racing Carnival. Need some makeup advice? QV has that covered too with free makeup consultations that go perfectly with beautifully manicured eyebrows from QV’s Goddess of Nails and Beauty who are providing free eyebrow shaping workshops every Monday!
