Designers from across Queensland take part and embrace the North Queensland culture through runway, fashion, food and entertainment. The extremely creative team of designers, hair and makeup artists will produce work of a calibre that would not be out of place on a national fashion runway event. Fine food, drinks and entertainment are the support acts to a night of glamour on the runway. Showcasing style, creativity and passion, the Townsville Fashion Festival engages all facets of the creative industries including retail, design, manufacturing, hair and beauty, photography, venues, restaurants and media. The aim is to profile, celebrate, encourage and support the established and emerging local fashion industry.
