Newcastle’s very own showcase at FASHFEST

by OutInNewcastle 9 September 2016

Fashion designers from all across Australia, New Zealand and Mumbai will unite in Canberra for the annual three-day event, FASHFEST, taking place from 29 September to 1 October. This year, the fashion extravaganza welcomes more than 40 designers that will showcase their pieces on the runway.

Our very own, High Tea with Mrs Woo, is set to take centre stage with its beautiful artisan pieces as part of the Assemblage Project segment. This segment will be curated by Assemblage Project owner and designer Karen Lee, and also includes another three exciting labels available in store; Eva Cassis, Kowtow and Wendy Voon.

With many new and exciting designers to feature, FASHFEST frequents will be glad to see a few familiar labels on the bill, including; SZN, Sovata, Karen Lee, Zilpah Tart, Melanie Child, Pure Pod and Red Corner Boxing.

New designers to keep an eye out for include, Naomi Peris Bridal (Canberra), Queen Nyibany Designs (Melbourne), Kira Pizzingrelli (Central Coast) and Vitamin by Sonalika (Mumbai).

Although fashion will take the main stage, the event also celebrates music and film. FASHFEST is set to host a record number of 25 musicians this year, including an impressive line-up of female talent. Providing a number of live performances and DJ sets, this year's event will spoil ticket holders with a range of genres including soul, funk, RnB and house.

The event will play host to a number of firsts as well, with Nico Lupo hitting the stage to play his first major Canberra performance, and Mondecreen and Tak-Un-Da introducing their new EPs on the FASHFEST stage.

The experience will unfold over three nights via six distinct shows – two per night (starting at 6:30pm and 8:30pm). To top off each night guests can celebrate at VIP parties, including a massive after-party on the closing night at Lucky’s Speakeasy, QT Canberra.

To ensure that everyone has the chance to be a part of the FASHFEST experience, organisers have included tickets available from just $49 (including GST). So there is no excuse but to make the trip to witness Canberra’s number one annual fashion extravaganza!

FASHFEST 2016 will be held from 29 September to 1 October at the National Convention Centre.
