Established in 2008, the event has grown from strength to strength incorporating Catwalk Shows, a Trade Lounge (pop up spaces with brands selling wholesale,) an industry Q & A, plus the The Sunshine Coast Style Awards, and the Sunshine Coast Design Awards and Hall of Fame.

The organic growth of the event, along with the strong support of designers, dedicated volunteer organisers and the media is what has gotten us to our 10th year,” said Founder & Director Jacinta Richmond.

With local, national and international labels involved, the event is recognized globally for its discovery of emerging talent and the opportunities for such to network with national and international established brands.

The 2017 Model Ambassador was announced as Charles Anthony Hall of Factor 1 Models Australia and Chadwicks Models, while the catwalk line up announcements include Nicola Finetti, Sunflair (Germany), NVK Daydoll (Milan), Myer and a host of others from the Sunshine Coast, Australia and Internationally.  This year also includes the launch of a coffee table book in celebration of the last 10 years.

A focus on quality, national and international brands will see us into our 10th anniversary year. It’s a brilliant opportunity for a select few emerging talent to showcase alongside established labels. With applications to showcase coming in fast from the Sunshine Coast and internationally, it won’t be long until we have filled the line up for 2017,” Ms Richmond continued.

The Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival, held in the millionaire’s playground that is the Sunshine Coast, is not to be missed. Applications to show and pre sale tickets are now available.

Open to both industry and public, the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival offers an exciting, packed full 24 hours of fashion and style for its 10th year.
