Brisbane Fashion Festival, Queensland’s premier fashion event, has announced its highly anticipated program for 2023. With an impressive lineup of local and national design talent, along with a range of exciting new events, this year’s festival promises to be a celebration of style and creativity.

In collaboration with the Brisbane Economic Development Agency, the festival will return to the vibrant King George Square in the heart of The City, running from Monday, August 21, to Friday, August 25. Over 50 designers, including the hottest labels in Australian fashion, Queensland favourites, and emerging design talent, will present a total of 460 unique and inspiring looks for the upcoming Spring/Summer season.

Festival Director Lindsay Bennett expressed his pride in presenting the program for the Brisbane Fashion Festival 2023, highlighting the importance of the event for the local fashion and retail scene. “Behind the beauty of the runway shows and events, the Fashion Festival is serious business,” said Bennett. “It promotes our local fashion industry, raises their profile, and boosts retail sales. As the first fashion event in Australia to launch new Spring/Summer collections, it cements Brisbane’s place on the fashion map and establishes Queensland as the ultimate destination for celebrating fashion.”

Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner praised the festival as an opportunity to showcase the city’s burgeoning fashion credentials. He emphasized the positive impact the event has on residents, visitors, and the local economy. “Events like Brisbane Fashion Festival are an important part of our jam-packed annual calendar, which keeps making Brisbane better,” said Mayor Schrinner. “We can’t wait to see Brisbane come alive to celebrate fashion and design, with a flow-on effect to local retailers, bars, and restaurants, boosting our economy and supporting local jobs.”

The runway program of the festival will kick off on Tuesday, August 22, with The Star Brisbane Fashion Show. This showcase will feature designs from leading Australian designers and cult favorites, including Camargue, Bonita Collective, Samantha Ogilvie, UNE PIECE, Edward Street Brisbane, Wintergarden, QueensPlaza, Carla Zampatti, Bianca Spender, Ginger & Smart, sass & bide, and Gail Sorronda.

On Wednesday, August 23, fashion enthusiasts will be treated to the Hancock Prospecting Next Gen Group Show, featuring the newest and brightest emerging designers. The show will present a diverse and original mix of creativity from designers such as Rachel Burke, TAFE QLD Brisbane, YLD Design, Fashion360, QUT Fashion, Lightning Boy by CJ, KG BOLD, Balaquin, Analia The Label, Desert Lily Vintage, Practice Studio, and Kamara Australia.

Thursday, August 24, will bring a spectacular showcase of some of Queensland’s most-loved designers and retailers. The lineup includes Sonia Stradiotto Couture, Gina Kim, White Label Noba, Naudic, Mea Culta, POL, Astille, Sacha Drake, JOAEN, I Am My Husband’s Mistress, and ShiloLydia.

In addition to the runway shows, the festival will feature a range of special events. The indulgent High Tea and Designer Salon Showing presented by QueensPlaza, Wintergarden, and Edward Street Brisbane will take place on Monday, August 21. New additions to this year’s festival include the Palace Cinemas Fashion Film Retrospective on the same day, featuring a special screening of Prêt-à-Porter, and the Queensland Ballet High Tea & Costume Panel Discussion on Wednesday, August 23.

Brisbane Fashion Festival is also proud to partner with Beyond DV and support Dress to Express Day on Friday, August 25, in solidarity with survivors of domestic violence. This initiative aims to raise awareness and support for an important cause.
