Across nine group shows featuring local, national and international fashion designers and retailers, this year’s parades will be held beneath the festival marquee in Queens Park outside Treasury Casino & Hotel in the city. Major names like Akira, Ginger & Smart and Camilla will join Queensland favourites Easton Pearson, Paul Hunt, Pia du Pradal and Sacha Drake, while graduate designs from Australia’s top six fashion colleges compete for the covetable Australian Fashion Graduate of the Year award.
Perhaps take an intellectual approach this year and increase your fashion awareness at Deepen The Conversation, a panel discussion of fashion and cultural identity at The State Library. From millinery to menswear and high fashion to handmade, plan your show schedule and purchase tickets now to make sure you’re first to know what to wear this coming spring/summer season.
