INGHAM will become the home of hair and fashion this month as the town prepares for its annual Australian Italian Hair and Fashion Show.
The show will present an array of talented hairdressers, fashion designers and wearable art at the Hinchinbrook Shire Hall on Thursday, July 30, as part of the Australian Italian Festival.
The popular local event aims to show the hidden talent of upcoming fashion designers, models and hair enthusiasts.
It originally began due to public demand for fashion houses to be able to show their designs to the local community.
It has since expanded into a platform for aspiring models, fashion designers and artists to present their creative flair to the community.
There is a range of categories for participants to enter on the night, including the local model search where the winner will receive a professional modelling course from sponsor Rhonda’s Final Touch Modelling Agency.
Event organiser Donna Zanotto said locals were also in for a surprise this year as they had managed to secure the Queensland Multicultural Week to be a part of the show.
“We have been quite privileged this year … this is the first year that out of Brisbane the Multicultural Week is going to be launched at our festival,” Ms Zanotto said.
The Australian Italian Festival celebrates its 21st anniversary this year and will hold various traditional events in Ingham throughout the weekend of August 1 and 2.
General tickets for the Hair and Fashion Show are $ 40 and are available through AMELIA CLOUT- STEN, 23, NORTH SHORE Dress: Myer $ 80 Shoes: Zu $ 80 Bangle: Equip $ 10 Necklace: Equip $ 10
