Hosted by Miss Money Penny, an official Melbourne Spring Fashion Week event.
"Forget getting all hot and bothered wading through Op shops, markets and Ebay to get a great designer find. As you sip on a glass of bubbles, Miss Money Penny will put together a salon style showing of top end pre loved designer pieces whilst the team from Makeovers, Manicures and Martinis treat you to a manicure, massage and make-up consultation. You’ll also receive a styling consultation courtesy of Bronwyn Fraser from the Style Establishment. This is the smartest, fastest and most relaxing way to shop for items that are Brand New With Tags (BNWT), Just Slipped On or Vintage Designer fashion; for a fraction of the retail price. Like what you see? Then you can purchase items after the show. Even if you don’t find something you’d like to buy you’ll leave refreshed and revived from your pampering treatments and full of ideas for new ways to wear items already in your wardrobe."
When: Tuesday August 31, 6.00pm to 9.00pm
Where: The Longroom, Georges Building, 162 – 168 Collins St, Melbourne

Readers too far away to make it to the event, fear not, Miss Money Penny has an online 'designer retail emporium' where sellers can earn some extra cash by selling off their pre-loved (and in some instances unworn!) designer garments, and buyers can purchase second hand designer fashion at reasonable prices.
A selection from the collection chosen today include:
Alannah Hill 100% silk cream dress, Size 8 BNWT $180 (RRP $529)
Gucci White Blazer Size 8, Pre-loved, $145 (RRP $1200)
