Brisbane Fashion Month at Brisbane Quarter

Styling You The Label: Diversity and Fashion – Thursday October 14
On Thursday October 14, join Styling You The Label’s Nikki Parkinson for an industry chat and runway that showcases why fashion brands will be left behind if they don’t take steps to be more inclusive – in their size offering and the way they market their clothes to their customers. Nikki will sit down with Active Truth’s Nadia Tucker and Stevie Angel, as well as Capriosca Swimwear’s Marcia Pilkington to talk about how creating brands that pay more than lip service to diversity has helped them to build thriving businesses that connect with their customers on a level that is way deeper than the clothes they produce. Then, enjoy a runway show including previews from Styling You The Label’s high summer collections as well as active and swimwear from Active Truth and Capriosca. Your ticket also includes a welcome drink at W Brisbane, canapes and a gift. Nab a ticket here.
