FASHFEST is seeking 2017 designers

Ah, Canberra, it’s that time of year again. Although FASHFEST 2017 is a good 6 months away yet, the fashion industry never sleeps – designer applications for the shows in September have just opened up! They’re calling for old and new local designers alike – and I’m beyond excited.

Supporting local designers is something very close to my heart, and it makes me very proud (and a teensy bit teary) when home-grown designers like EDITION, who participated in FASHFEST last year, head off to showcase their talent in the international fashion scene.
