FASHFEST is a stunning four-day fashion event that shines the spotlight on the city of Canberra’s diverse local design talent.
The inaugural event, held in 2013, was a smashing success and one of the top five picks in the ‘People’s Choice Awards’—Attractions and Events category. And it was fitting that FASHFEST launched in Centenary, celebrating Canberra’s 100th birthday in style.
FASHFEST is first and foremost about the nation’s capital and its talent. It’s the biggest annual fashion event held in Canberra—our classy take on the major fashion weeks held in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
Canberra is bursting at the seams with design talent. A pool of serious designers works and studies here, including at the Canberra Institute of Technology, CIT Centre of Creative Industries, University of Canberra’s Faculty of Arts and Design and the Australian National University School of Art. FASHFEST supports this talent by providing an all-important platform for design work.
This sensational red-carpet event features a different show each night, VIP after-parties, publicity events and more.
