The City Heart Fash­ion Event will show­case Toowoomba as a ma­jor fash­ion shop­ping precinct on Septem­ber 9 with more than 40 cloth­ing shops be­ing in­volved in the event at the Ar­mitage Cen­tre, Em­pire Theatre.

Or­gan­is­ers of the event, Beau Min­nett and Chris­tine Coorey, have re­vamped the run­way event to cater for the city’s grow­ing pop­u­la­tion with the goal be­ing for peo­ple to stop and shop in Toowoomba.

“We have so many unique bou­tiques in the city and we want to show­case the city as a one-stop shop for all things fash­ion,” Beau says.

“There has been a grow­ing trend in Toowoomba, across the Dar­ling Downs and south west for the past few years of peo­ple shop­ping on­line.

“We want to en­cour­age peo­ple to come back into the city to shop.

“We are com­pa­ra­ble to any big city — we have the in­fras­truc­ture to cater for all de­mo­graph­ics and we want to help pro­mote the city as a shop­ping precinct.”

More than 30 lo­cal mod­els will take to the cat­walk for the event, so not only will it show­case lo­cal fash­ion houses but also our lo­cal tal­ent pool of mod­els.

“We also have some spe­cial guests who will take to the run­way — former Toowoomba lads from the band In­terim fea­tur­ing Alec Snow who was known as Matt from Home and Away will take part in the event,” Beau says.

Alec, who de­cided to leave Home and Away at the start of this year to con­cen­trate on In­terim, said although the boys haven’t been on a cat­walk be­fore they were look­ing for­ward to coming home and giv­ing back to Toowoomba.

“We are thrilled to be coming back home to take part in the City Heart Fash­ion Event and to be a part of the com­mu­nity that sup­ported us from the start,” Alec says.
