FashFest 2013 – Canberra’s New Look

by The Editor

FashFest F

The New Year has started with a bang for a little project aiming to lift the profile of Canberra’s fashion scene to a whole new level.  Last year’s Avant Garden event by Hannah St James as well as an incredibly well received Kinetic show from the CIT graduating students proved there is an appetite in town for both conceptual and mainstream shows.  Perhaps there is opportunity for something even bigger?

All we have are a few promo shots, a letter ‘F’ and this from the FashFest Facebook page:

FASHFEST is a 4-day festival of fashion that will transform the nation’s capital from May 1st – 4th.

The page creators are listed as Clinton and Andrea Hutchinson.  While Clinton had great success last year with the Help From the Underground fundraiser back in June 2012, we have word Andrea is very much the driving force behind FashFest.

Apart from that, it’s all rumour and speculation.  Perhaps you’ve got wind of the grand plan for the first big show of the year?  If so, keep us all in the loop by throwing the goss in the comments below.
