Brisbane will play host to a never-before-seen fashion event for the River City with the launch of the inaugural Brisbane Fashion Weekend on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October 2016 at the Royal International Convention Centre in Bowen Hills. Bringing a fresh new approach to fashion and shopping, Brisbane Fashion Weekend will offer a combined runway and designer pop-up ‘retail therapy’ experience.
Thousands of visitors are expected through the doors over the weekend, all on the hunt for the latest collections, discounted designer wear and rare designer offers. With the opening of several major fashion labels and stores in and around the city over the recent months and years, it is plain to see there is a genuine desire and emphasis on fashion in Brisbane, and Brisbane Fashion Weekend is sure to help fill this void.
With this in mind, Brisbane Fashion Weekend will create a unique occasion for Brisbane fashionistas to sit front row at The Runway where they will enjoy an exclusive viewing of the latest trends from some of Australia’s most-loved designers and brands, and then have the opportunity to purchase their favourite items right then and there at the adjoining Pop-Up Precinct. More than 50 of Australia’s favourite and up-and-coming designers and labels will sell their collections at Brisbane Fashion Weekend’s Pop-Up Precinct with the promise of sales galore. A selection of 10 to 15 of these designers will also take to The Runway.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to hear from fashion industry experts on Centre Stage, relax and unwind with a mini-treatment or two in the Pamper Room, and soak up the fashion-infused atmosphere with a glass of bubbly in the Champagne Lounge.
A range of ticket packages will be available for purchase online and at the door, starting at $25 and going up to $65 for an access all areas, front row ticket. Information on featured designers and labels will be released over the coming months at www.brisbanefashionweekend.com.au. Tickets will go on sale in early July 2016.
