Bespoke Fashion Fundraiser

Bespoke is a unique design event showcasing some of Canberra’s exceptional designers, creative make up artists, models and hair stylists, brought to you for one night in the amazing New Acton precinct.

The event is an initiative of The Fashion Vault (Janette Lenk, Sofia Polak and Daniella Jukic) and hair extraordinaire Leslie Henshaw,and Samara Gentle from Big Ink, and will showcase the designs of Canberra/Sydney duo – Lil and Emm, Alice Sutton, Janette Lenk, Dissonance, Hunter and A.Periodic.



This event is like no other. Six designers will be showing their Autumn Winter collections. Once the models have walked the catwalk, the public will be able to buy straight off the runway. There will be stalls where you can buy the designers clothes and jewellery. Storeowners and buyers will have the chance to source new Canberra designers for their stores.


The other side of the event is a fundraiser. A percentage of ticket sales will go to Kuya Collaborative (with a percentage of ticket profits and designer sales going to the charity). There will be a live auction from a real estate auctioneer, with designer prizes and restaurant vouchers.

The Kuya Collaborative aims to provide life skills to poverty-stricken community members in Manila through facilitated training programs. Training programs are developed and supported by Enactus University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) students, for the Kuya Centre for Street Children (KCSC) in Manila, Philippines.

“This is close to our hearts because we can give back to those who can become skilled and work in the field that we do, hairdressing and sewing” says Janette.


Tickets are $35 and are available from www.ticketebo.com.au/bespoke-events/bespoke. Price includes a glass of sparkling wine and canapés, goodie bag and great music.
