FASHFEST quickly gained ground as the pre-eminent fashion event on Canberra’s annual social calendar. The inaugural event exceeded expectations and was widely recognised, including gaining a position in the top five, ‘OutinCanberra People’s Choice Awards’—Attractions and Events category. In 2014, FASHFEST appeared in the launch of Canberra’s new brand—CBR.
FASHFEST is strong on collaboration. We collaborated with local artists to create our own swimwear and some individual designers collaborated with other creatives to create metal jewellery and sensational headwear.
