In just under two months the champagne will be flowing as FASHFEST 2016 celebrates opening night. Tickets were released for sale TODAY! Be quick if you want the best seats in the house.
More than 40 designers will showcase new collections this year; with fashion worn by a record-number of models (140 in total). For the first time, FASHFEST will roll out two shows a night, one starting at 6.30pm and one at 8.30pm.
The ticket structure includes front-row VIP seats for $135 ($185 including an exclusive guided backstage tour, which is heaps of fun). Second-row Platinum seats are $100 ($150 with the backstage tour) and Gold—first two rows of the tiered seating—are selling for $69 (all prices incl GST). Also, for the first time, FASHFEST has released $49 tickets. “We wanted to accommodate students on tight budgets and open the event up to the younger crowd,” says Andrea Hutchinson, a co-founder of FASHFEST. “Group bookings are available for some seats—buy 5 tickets, get 1 free. And if you can’t get enough of FASHFEST, buy the two shows package (gold and silver only), which gets you a 10% discount.”
Check out www.fashfest.com.au for what is included for each price point. No matter what you spend on your ticket—FASHFEST is a great social night out. This must-see CBR event certainly celebrates designer fashion, but it also celebrates the amazing talent of many other creatives, including musicians and DJs, original filmmakers, wow-factor hair and makeup and more.
FASHFEST wouldn’t be FASHFEST without extraordinary sound and lighting, pulled together each year by Darren Russell of Canberra’s Elite Event Technology. You won’t believe you’re in the National Convention Centre Canberra once Darren and his time have worked their magic.
Another creative element to FASHFEST is its themes. Each show is curated around a theme, which ensures a well-thought through guest experience. It puts the event up there with the best Australia has to offer. Themes for 2016 are all described on the FASHFEST website. “Even if fashion isn’t your thing,” says co-founder Clint Hutchinson, “you’ll love FASHFEST for its many other creative elements. I even love it because it’s the best people watching in town.”
