    A Canberra girl raised a Catholic is the head designer of an Australian fashion house specialising in contemporary and sophisticated - but still modest - designs for Muslim women. Sydney label Hijab House is well-known among the Muslim community - designs sell-out during the festival that follows Ramadan - but it will be making its debut in a mainstream fashion show at Fashfest in Canberra from April 30 to May 3.

    There has been quite a bit of buzz about who the face of FashFest 2014 would be, and I have to say that from the mere glimpses that the FashFest team were releasing across their social media platforms, I was genuinely intrigued to see who would be the face that launched the event this year.
    On Tuesday this week the mystery was cleared up, and Canberra's own Belinda Riding was announced as the face of this year's event.

    Belinda Riding was attending a deportment class when she was set on a path to an international modelling career in 1987. The face of Fashfest for 2014 was then a Canberra Girls Grammar student, and the Australian Fashion Awards was looking for models for its show at the Canberra Theatre. ''[The choreographer] saw me at a deportment course that I was doing and picked me out of a line-up of girls and said 'I want you to wear the winning garment','' she recalled. Fast-forward 27 years, after a distinguished career on the catwalks of New York, Paris, Milan and Tokyo, Riding has moved back to Canberra with her family and is keen to promote Canberra's next generation of fashion stars.
