The Brisbane Fashion Festival is set to return with an expanded program of events. 

The Festival will run from August 21 to August 25 and is expected to draw a crowd of up to 3,000 throughout the week.

Brisbane Fashion Festival director Lindsay Bennett confirmed the full program would be released on May 31. 

“As Queensland’s premier annual fashion event, Brisbane Fashion Festival provides a vital platform to celebrate our local design talent on a world-class stage, connecting designers and retailers with an audience of fashion media, industry representatives, and most importantly, potential customers,” Bennett said.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the festival is a major part of the city’s events calendar, with Brisbane Economic Development Agency returning as principal partner. 

“The Brisbane Fashion Festival is a staple in the city’s events calendar, bringing the streets to life with runway shows, foodie events, and some of our best local and national styles on show,” Schrinner said.

“Each year this event creates a great ripple effect on local designers, retailers, bars and restaurants, while directly supporting hundreds of local jobs.

“We can’t wait to see the festival return bigger and better this year.”

Last year, the program featured 68 designers presenting over 400 new season looks. Over 2,000 guests attended four runway shows while 4,000 viewers across 28 countries tuned into the Fashion Festival runway Live Streams.
