Leader of the Australian Sex Party and representative for the Northern Metro region, Fiona Patten, will take her seat for the first time in the Victorian Legislative Council tomorrow.

Ms Patten is a former independent fashion designer who ran her own label called Body Politics in Canberra, during the 1980s.
