Fashion is one of our favourite things. That and food, which don’t really go together, but that’s why we’re the ones behind the screen isn’t it. Seems the rest of the Coast is quite fond of fashion too and excitingly, we get our very own festival to celebrate it.
GC Fashion Week is happening from November 1st (good day) to 4th and it’s going to be the very best one in the history of GC Fashion Weeks.
The program was released just now and it is jam-packed with eight showcases, highlighting the exceptional talent of Aussie fashion labels.
Under the expert guidance of Creative and Technical Director Andrew Claridge, the event is set to be unlike anything the Gold Coast has seen before with an elaborate production, models of an international caliber and a bevy of top Australian designers on show.
What a time.
On Friday November 2nd, the Retail Showcase will see popular boutiques such as Dissh, Substance and Janine Edwards show current trends by Asilio, Avery, Ixiah, Misha, We Are Kindred, Shona Joy and Thurley (to name a few).
Plus, the Swim Showcase will give you a sneak peek into brands like Mely Swimwear, Pink Punk, Wild Barra, Summer Addiction & Kynobi, Burnt Wolf, Salty Soul and Journe.
Saturday the 3rd of November will see the Emerging Designer Showcase, giving us a look at unique collections and designs from the best up and coming Australian talent.
Collections from Kortni Portia, Koda in Crimson, diploma students from AICD, Rare Muse, Platinum Plus and Catalina Dolls will take the stage.
There’s a charity and lingerie breakfast and exclusive runway show featuring international brands and some tasty treats. That’s on Sunday November 4th, as is the Community Showcase, which will show looks from previous events.
The entire festival is a celebration of both Queensland and Australian fashion and we think it’s going to be a pretty magical time.
Importantly, you can also expect great music, food and bevies, the Luxe Lounge, sponsor activations, interactive beauty stations and more. Yes please.
All profits from this event go to the Gold Coast Hospital Foundation to assist with cancer transport. Which is huge, and really great.
You can get yourself everything from reserved seating tickets to luxe front row with the added extra of a cruise aboard a luxury super yacht. How good.
We’re moving on up in the fashion world friends. See you at GC Fashion Week.
DATES: November 1st to 4th
LOCATION: Broadwater Parklands, Southport
