Strut your stuff


By Bianca Licina | 1st June 2022

We know you’ve only just started pulling out your scarves and boots for winter, but the fashion world is way ahead of you. Think forward to strappy sandals and summer dresses and prepare to feast your eyes on the up-and-coming Spring/Summer season collections produced by Brisbane and Australia’s best and brightest designers. 

If you’re like us, you’ve been eagerly waiting for Brisbane’s turn after seeing the glorious catwalk and fashion moments from Sydney and Melbourne’s fashion weeks. Well guess what fashion-lovers, the Brisbane Fashion Festival is right around the corner.

 

 

Our humble city’s growing fashion scene is taking the catwalk by storm this August, with more than 50 designers showcasing their pieces this year, spotlighting designers both big and small alongside cult favourites, Australian classics, and new designers down the runway. 

Taking place in Brissy’s iconic King George Square right in the heart of the city, it’s the perfect setting to showcase Brisbane’s growing fashion scene. From Monday 22 August to Friday 26 August, the streets will be a buzzing hub of fashion and style with the cream of the crop on show for all to see. 

Beginning with the Treasury Brisbane Fashion Show on Tuesday 23 August, prepare to see big name designers, retailers, and cult faves of Australia grace the catwalks. Yup, we’re talkin’ Ginger & Smart, Calibre, Paul Hunt, Camargue, and Samantha Ogilvie. 

 

 

On night two you can feast your eyes on the work of Brisbane’s freshest faces in fashion. Presented by Hancock Prospecting, the Next Gen Group Show will be opened by First Nations designers Myrrdah and Jarawee. You’ll also witness other Brisbane designs from QUT Fashion, Mitch Graham Suit Studio, TAFE Queensland Brisbane, Bella Lusso, and more.  

But it’s Thursday night where all Queensland’s favourite designs will be seen strutting the runway in celebration of our thriving fashion scene. This will feature Calexico + Calexico Man, Urbbana, White Label Noba, Girl and the Sun, Naudic, and Bonita Collective. 

But wait, there’s more! Off the runway, enjoy a high tea hosted by the Museum of Brisbane and a styling workshop at Queen Street Mall.

 

 

Feeling peckish? Take part in the FashionBites initiative where you can enjoy pre- and post- show bites and drinks from Brisbane’s best restaurants to really get you in the mood. Not to mention, the EPICURE Fashion Bar in King George Square will be the go-to place for the who’s who of fashion to indulge in a little pre-show drink.

To wrap up a week of creativity and talent, you're invited to enjoy the Treasury Brisbane After Party on Thursday 25 August. 

Tickets are on sale from today (1 June) from $55 – Grab yours here and secure your seat for Queensland’s biggest and best fashion event. See you in the front row!
