About Brisbane Fashion Month.

Brisbane Fashion Month, presented by Wintergarden, is Queensland’s largest showcase of local designers, with more local labels on show and in store than any other event.

As the premiere festival for networking, supporting and developing the Queensland fashion industry, our month-long series of events each October aims to showcase the best of the Brisbane and Queensland fashion community as part of our city’s booming cultural event schedule.

Brisbane Fashion Month encompasses multiple runway shows across Brisbane’s most iconic venues where audiences can see curated collections from emerging designers, sustainable fashion labels, bespoke and custom garments, resort collections, through to our most established names in fashion.

BFM Workshops

This year we continue our signature business workshop, which enables like-minded fashion business professionals to share and connect. This year’s events include pop-up stores in Brisbane City’s Wintergarden shopping centre and the burgeoning West Village precinct, providing truly invaluable retail exposure. Also included are the illustration workshops and a new sustainable fashion walking tour.

Presented by Wintergarden

Brisbane Fashion Month presented by Wintergarden is our industry’s opportunity to grow together. We are proud to have the support of a dedicated group of businesses and industry groups who have come together to see our design and creative talent thrive.
