The October 8-10 event, presented by VOGUE Australia, will take over Rundle Mall and Rundle Street for the fourth time, with special activations and shopping offers by clothing, skincare, homeware, jewellery and hospitality retailers.
This year’s Festival will also be honouring one of Adelaide’s own who is recognised as one of Australia’s fashion icons. Paul Vasileff, the designer behind Paolo Sebastian has curated a retrospective of his designs and will be signing sketches for the public from 1-3pm on each day of the Adelaide festival.
