Fashfest 2016

Designer applications are out, the dates are locked in and in 2016 FASHFEST will hold more catwalk shows than ever before.

Planning for Canberra’s pre-eminent and largest fashion event is well underway, with the new dates announced as 29 September to 1 October, and the number of shows increased to a total of six, with two per night.

Once again, the event will be held at the National Convention Centre, powered by sound and lighting that will transform the space.

Co-founder Clint Hutchinson says the change in dates was logical.

“We’re now aligned with Australia’s overall fashion calendar and the timing of ‘sister events’ like the major weeks in Melbourne and Sydney,” says Clint.

“And the new dates mean we have more time to prepare for the added number of shows. Each year we get stronger and the event gets more exciting. 2016 is no exception.”

An added bonus, says Clint, is that September is much warmer than May in the capital, meaning guests can glam up without worrying about feeling chilled.
