BrisAsia Fashion Festival to Showcase Asian, Indigenous, and International Heritages in Fortitude Valley

For the first time, designers and labels will be showcasing their latest creations at the BrisAsia Fashion Festival with a focus on Asian, Indigenous, and International heritages.

The spectacular fashion event will take place on Friday, 25 March 2022, at the Fortitude Music Hall in Fortitude Valley. 

From 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. guest speakers like Akira Isogawa from Akira, Natalie Cunningham from Native Swimwear Australia, and Sher Lo from Anannasa will be featured at the Fashion Forum.  Two runway shows will run at 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. with the Motorama Group, which represents many leading Asian car brands and is located in highly diverse communities.

An after-party will be held at The Outpost on Warner St.

“The only fashion event in Brisbane, and Queensland, specifically curated to showcase local Asian designers, champion intercultural dialogue and collaborate with Indigenous artists, BrisAsia Fashion establishes a new horizon for Queensland fashion,” BAFF Fashion Director Liz Golding said.

“Queenslanders love to celebrate the homegrown talent and national designers who love their Queensland supporters and now we can do so in a way that embraces the full spectrum of our cultural diversity.” 

In February, BAFF conducted its model search at the Brothers Rugby Club in Albion.

Brisbane fashion influencer Marie Hillard, ‘@thebrisbanegirl’, is the Event Ambassador and BAFF will support local charity Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice, through donations from ticket sales.
