Whilst Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is an invite only affair, Fashion Festival Sydney is an event especially designed with the buying public in mind.
Showcasing the best of the spring/summer 2013/2014 collections from a dizzying array of successful Australian fashion designers, guests can choose to attend the "trends" show (featuring designers such as Bec & Bridge, Camilla & Marc and Alice McCall), "red carpet runway" show (featuring iconic designers Colette Dinnigan, Alex Perry, Jason Brunsdon and Toni Maticevski) or retailer specific shows (think Sportscraft, General Pants and online retailer Jasu).
The four-day festival offers the fashion savvy the opportunity to witness the new season's aesthetic and mentally picture their revamped spring/summer wardrobe before the collections hit stores.
Bringing an explosion of glamour and style to the streets of Sydney, Fashion Festival Sydney is a "must attend" event, not just for the fashion-obsessed, but for anyone with a genuine appreciation for the design talents of Australian fashion creatives.
