To celebrate the beginning of Melbourne’s revered Spring Fashion season, Chadstone - The Fashion Capital - is launching the Fashion Capsule on Wednesday, September 19 as part of a five-day Spring Fashion Extravaganza. The Fashion Capsule is an indoor marquee designed to make every Chadstone visitor look and feel like an Alister. The Fashion Capsule comprises four rooms: The Hat Salon, The Beauty Room, The Blow Dry Bar and The Style Room; and will be a hive of activity throughout the week.

The Beauty Room
The Beauty Room is all about primping and pampering as professional make-up artists conduct complimentary makeovers on Chadstone shoppers using cosmetics from Bourjois, Max Factor and Red Earth. Whether you prefer a quick slick of lipgloss and mascara, or have a more extensive make-up regime, learn the best tips and techniques from the experts.

The Blow Dry Bar
Chadstone visitors will be blown away as Joh Bailey representatives perform complimentary blow dries at the Blow Dry Bar, and demonstrate how to achieve professional results at home.

The Style Room
The Style Room will house trunk shows by designers and fashion workshops, including an exclusive style party by Harper’s Bazaar and Madison, in conjunction with Chadstone – The Fashion Capital.

The Hat Salon
A selection of Melbourne’s top milliners, Peter Jago, Sandy Buchanan, Georgina Conheady, Serena Linderman and Melissa Jackson, will appear in The Hat Salon to host workshops and give tips on DIY hat design. Learn what style suits you best, and how to balance and compliment your outfit with the perfect hat. Visitors to The Hat Salon will have the opportunity to purchase unique pieces by the milliners.

The Fashion Capsule will also house the annual Spring Fashion VIP Party, which will be graciously hosted by Yellowglen Jewel.

The five-day Spring Fashion Extravaganza includes a Spring VIP Shopping Night on Wednesday, September 19. Visitors will enjoy exclusive retail offers of up to 50% off, see the latest in Spring fashion on the catwalk, have the chance to win designer goods and much more.
