Where can I hire a formal dress in Sydney, with in-person fitting?

Surprise! I'm going to a black tie event on Saturday night. I have nothing to wear and therefore need to hire a dress. Everything I can find on Google so far is an online order. I would prefer a brick and mortar building where I can try on someone's inventory of dresses; I've done this before in other countries so I know it's A Thing. Where can I do this in Sydney?

Professional dress for an early evening "Gala"

I've been invited to attend an anniversary dinner/fundraiser for a regional nonprofit advocacy group. I'll be attending as a guest of a work-related higher-up, and the event will doubtless involve a bunch of professional networking small talk. They're calling it a gala... but the event starts at 5:30, with dinner at 6:30. What on earth do I wear? [more inside]

How to get a stain out of a vintage dress?

I am the proud new owner of this vintage picnic-checked pink gingham maxi dress, which I picked up for a song! Unfortunately, the dress has a stain on the bust that I need to remove (see the fifth picture in the link), and I am looking for advice about the best method(s) to try without ruining the dress. The dress is missing a tag indicating fabric, and the brand label has been cut out of it. I don't know much about the dress or the stain, but here are a few things I do know: [more inside]

Fancy wool-blend formalwear: dry-clean after every wearing?

I recently acquired a beautiful, brand new designer dress that's much nicer than anything I've had in my wardrobe before. I've worn it once and have been hanging it up to air out. Is it better to get it dry cleaned before storing it, or will it be easier on the fabric to put it away in its worn-once state? I don't want to put unnecessary stress on the fabric from the dry cleaning process, but I really, really don't want to find moth holes in the dress several months from now, either. [more inside]

Help me Swingify my wardrobe.

I've been taking a Lindy Hop class for about a month and I'm really enjoying it. I'm keen on eventually going out to social dances and events when I feel more confident, but I have no wardrobe to back it up right now. I have a vague idea of what swing era fashion is like, but I'd like to do more research on what's hip, cool, and appropriate. Can anyone suggest sites, blogs, pinterest boards, online shops, etc so I can get a sense of what I should deck out in?

Prom dress emergency...there will be blood.

My daughter ordered the prom dress of her dreams-and two days later we learned it was out of stock. Actually, I learned-haven't told her yet as trying to avoid the ensuing drama and more prom dress shopping. Attempting to find it online, or in another retail location, but no luck. Here's a not-great pic of the dress. The tag says it's Fiesta, number 46001, Mint-and she needs an x-small. [more inside]

Summer Wedding In Charleston, Need fashion critiques!

As the title states I've got a wedding in Charleston, SC in July. I'm planning on getting a blue seersucker jacket anyways, so I've been looking on how to put this all together. I've come up with two ensembles that I think would work best. The main differences between the two are the pants really...white pants vs blue. The shoes coordinate appropriately as white shoes/pants wouldn't really work. The shirt choices, white or pastel pink are negotiable, as is the bowtie vs regular tie. I'd likely pocket square it up as well. Opinions? I'm open to any other styles or ways to arrange it all. If it bears any relevance my girlfriend will be wearing this.
