What was once thought to be 'sleepy', 'perfect-for-retiries, 'nothing-ever-happens-here', Adelaide is undergoing a serious transformation; from vibrant laneways and gourmet cuisine, to fabulous fashion festivals, Adelaide has never been so alive! One specific creative we can thank is Adelaide's finest, Hue Le.
Fashion Concept is the brainchild of Le, who happens to also be the designer of Adelaide label Willow and Grace, and Nick Kennett and Sarika Young of FTM Model Management. Inspired by the variety of high-quality and innovative fashion designers emerging from Adelaide, the trio decided to create a new platform to help encourage and showcase Adelaide's designers with a premiere fashion event.
"We have Adelaide Fashion Festival, which is an amazing event for local designers but that's only once a year. Adelaide needs more fashion events for designers to be involved with, "says Le. "I want to create more avenue for designers to showcase their designs."
The event will feature fourteen homegrown designers showcasing their latest designs at the Nexus Multicultural Art Centre on Wednesday 11th of February.
With a line up including 2013 AFF Emerging Designer Award winner Georgia Guy, Adelaide favourite Namoi and Ashlee Graham for the ladies, and Created Range, Jean and Crop, and Fools and Trolls for the guys, there's no doubt it will be a fashion packed event not to be missed!
All looks will be modelled by the fresh faces of Adelaide's newest modelling agency, FTM Model Management . Although we have yet to see the agency in action, expect to see some premier models hit the runway!
"Besides the fashion parade by local designers, guests will be treated to live performance by Sarah Llyode, who was feature on The Voice 2012 and Australian Idol contestant. Lets just say that a lot of love has gone into our gift bags with hand made gift for ALL our guests," says Le.
With less than two weeks until Fashion Concept... if you don't already have your tickets, I honestly don't know what you're waiting for! Tickets can be purchased online HERE.
