Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

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.
