Brisbane Fashion Month: My experiences of BFM 2016.

A change of plans meant I would be in Brisbane during October and this coincided with Brisbane Fashion Month.  The events I chose to attend were as follows: Undress Runways – Sustainable Fashion Show. I loved this show for the commitment of so many new brands to think about fashion in an ethical and sustainable way which is so important for this industry going forward. This show also had the best and biggest audience of all the shows I attended. Everyone was there from well before the show, right till the last model walked the finale and genuinely supported the creative efforts of all involved. Resort on James Street I liked catching the vibe at this street party and shopping event. My favourite part was chatting to people at the stores and meeting the featured artist Gary Winfield at Red Sea gallery and discussing his art on consciousness. Brisbane Designer Q Red Carpet Fashion Show at St Paul’s Cathedral in the City was by far the most elegant of the shows. Put on designer by Nikki Teljega it showcased Brisbane emerging and established designers ranging from sportswear to jewellery and whimsical to glamorous evening wear. Brisbane Fashion Weekend was the last show I attended. This one I connected with the least as it felt a lot more commercial than creative with an emphasis on purchasing clothes at a market after the short catwalk event, but was still an enjoyable experience.
