Fes­ti­val back in fash­ion

Run­way ac­tion kicks off to­mor­row

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE | WHAT’S ON -

THE Sun­shine Coast In­ter­na­tional Fash­ion Fes­ti­val is ready for its 11th year, with fi­nal prepa­ra­tions un­der­way be­fore it kicks off on Oc­to­ber 19.

What be­gan as a one-off event, took on a life of its own, mov­ing from a very heavy fo­cus on lo­cal fash­ion la­bels with one high pro­file guest, to an event that show­cases more in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional la­bels than ever be­fore — the ma­jor­ity of which are not show­ing any­where else in Aus­tralia.

A new venue at The Sebel, Pel­i­can Wa­ters, lends it­self to a new di­rec­tion for the event.

With the 2018 theme be­ing “cu­rated”, a greater di­ver­sity in brands, looks and higher qual­ity than ever be­fore will be ex­pe­ri­enced across three shows — Swimwear and Re­sort, Ready to Wear and Cou­ture — and the re­cently an­nounced Aus­tralian Men’s Fash­ion Week show.

The Sun­shine Coast Style Awards, and the Sun­shine Coast De­sign Awards and Hall of Fame move to the Fri­day evening times­lot with drinks and nib­bles.

The Trade Lounge is open to non-ticket hold­ers all day from 9am-3pm, af­ter which it be­comes the ex­clu­sive do­main of ticket hold­ers, me­dia and in­dus­try who can shop whole­sale for most brands.

With guests stay­ing on­site, min­gling and net­work­ing by the pool, on the ter­race, by the many waterfalls and at the bar, ev­ery­thing hap­pens in one gor­geous lo­ca­tion.

More than 19 la­bels will be on dis­play dur­ing the fes­ti­val and two award shows will also be held.

The Sun­shine Coast In­ter­na­tional Fash­ion Fes­ti­val aims to de­liver a full fash­ion week ex­pe­ri­ence in just 24 hours.
