Brisbane Fashion Festival 2023

And That’s a Wrap: BFF All Over For Another Year

With 2023’s Brisbane Fashion Festival all over, it’s success can be seen in its runway shows selling out in record time with more than 3,000 fashion fans attending. The 5 day Festival, which ran last week is the first in the country to launch Spring/Summer collections each year.

This year’s event featured more than 50 designers, including local, national and next-gen designers, as well as labels from some of Brisbane’s hottest retail destinations, plus 450 unique on-trend looks for the new spring/summer season.

Festival Director Lindsay Bennett said he was ecstatic to see such a strong show of public backing for the Festival. “This year, the Festival has been an outstanding celebration of the best of Spring/Summer ‘23 local and national fashion. Thank you to the people of Brisbane, our sponsors and our loyal fashion fans for making the 16th Brisbane Fashion Festival the very best yet!”

Along with runways, events included high teas, a movie retrospective and closing charity walk and panel discussion for ‘Dress to Express’ Beyond DV. There were many additional highlights. These included the Star Brisbane Fashion Show, presenting the biggest names and cult favourites in Australian fashion; the Next Gen Group Show, showcasing the next big names in Queensland and Australian design; and a star line-up of Queensland’s most-loved designers in the Designer Group Show.

The Brisbane Fashion Festival has a bit of a history of being an innovator, having showcased the first adaptive fashion range featuring models in wheelchairs as part of its NextGen Runway in 2019.
