The final selection is complete and a range of exciting designers will launch new collections at Fashfest, the biggest fashion event to be held in the nation’s capital in 2014. Four nights.
The line-up includes top local designers from the inaugural event, as well as a range of new designers, all with a connection to Canberra. Also to appear are graduate designers, in line with Fashfest’s strong commitment to support emerging creatives.
Stay tuned for news on the release of ticket sales and book early for this awesome, red-carpet showstopper.
Special thanks to the team of well-known, independent fashion experts who reviewed designer applications this year and made recommendations to Fashfest organisers. Fashion consultant and business owner Sarah Kelly, educator and designer Shelley Campton, and high-end retailer Susan Taylor, who owns Department of Exterior in Manuka, provided very stylish support indeed.
In 2013, FASHFEST made it into the top five, ‘OutInCanberra People’s Choice Awards’—Attractions and Events category. The inaugural event exceeded everyone’s expectations and the support from the city of Canberra, and those who live and work here, carries on to this day. Thanks Canberra.
