Fitted for Work are hosting a Delightfully Daring Tea Party in QV Square on Friday March 15 from 12.30 until 2pm for an equally unique fundraiser, National Dare to Wear Day. Participants are invited to come to QV Square in their full daring ensembles, where they will be treated to exotic teas from Madame Flavour, a rainbow of unique macarons from LuxBite, the mesmerising vocals of Olivia Bartley, the creative force behind Melbourne act Olympia, and have the chance to win Monster Threads tees, which will be awarded to the most daring ensembles on the day! The square will also be prettied up by plants from Flower Temple.

Supported by L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program, Dare to Wear Day aims to raise awareness and more than $165,000 in funds to help support vulnerable women experiencing disadvantage and looking for work. It encourages participants to be courageous dressing up, and have their friends, family and co-workers donate for the privilege of seeing them wear something cheeky or chic for just one day.

This year's Dare to Wear event also gives participants the chance to win several fabulous prizes, including tickets to L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Week, a goody bag from vintage boutique Dear Gladys and a fantastic pack from Moet Hennessey, containing a magnum each of Moet Imperial, Veuve Cliquot, and Belvedere.

In its third year, National Dare to Wear Day is a one-of-a-kind national-online fundraising campaign, founded by not-for-profit organisation, Fitted for Work. Established in 2005, Fitted for Work has helped more than 12,000 women experiencing disadvantage achieve financial independence by providing free interview-training, mentoring, transition-to-work programs and personal-outfitting services.

Today, 75% of the women assisted through Fitted for Work's unique programs secure employment within three months.
