Pacific Runway is Australia’s most prestigious platform for Pacific-origin fashion design and this year the sold out show adds more exciting designers, creativity and special guests to it’s line up.
Pacific Runway’s commercial and critical success means that the event has become a highlight for the Sydney venue Carriageworks – now in it’s third consecutive year as host.
An expansion of the fashion event this year will include the collections of Indigenous Australian designers with Indigenous luxury resortwear label Kirrikin kicking off the 2018 show.
A plethora of high profile guests will be in attendance including TV presenter Faye De Lanty, Vogue’s sustainability Editor-at-large Clare Press, SBS Journalist Jan Fran, GQ Insider Jordan Turner and singer Paulini Curuenavuli.
This year’s showcase will launch the Resort ’18/19 collections by top designers from around the Pacific, NZ, USA, France and Australia and worn by models of diverse ethnicities.
Another highlight will be the display of a unique urban cultural hybrid style of Pacific design methods particularly the traditional methods used, making some designers leaders in sustainability and global viability.
Lisa Havilah, director of Carriageworks notes the importance of Pacific Runway.
“It is a privilege for Carriageworks to support such incredible design talent from across the Pacific and we look forward to continuing to grow our partnership into the future,” she said.
Pacific Runway 2019 is on this Friday night October 26th.
