Since its inception; fashion weeks have been some of the industry’s most highly regarded and anticipated events known to international fashion enthusiasts. The week-long event is the partnership and collaboration where fashion houses, brands, models, hair & make-up stylists, and fashion event leads display their latest collections and talents on the runway to buyers and the media. The most prominent fashion weeks’ current known internationally include the ‘big four’:
- Paris Fashion Week,
- Milan Fashion Week,
- London Fashion Week, and
- New York Fashion Week
When it comes to Australia, the entire country comes together for Australian Fashion Week which is an annual fashion industry event that features seasonal collections from both Australian and Asia Pacific Designers. This event is intended for retail buyers to purchase forthcoming collections directly from designers and manufacturers further supporting and showcasing smaller more independent brands.
In addition to the nationwide event, individual cities have also begun to create their own events to further support and promote local designers and industry professionals; including events such as Melbourne Fashion Week and Brisbane Fashion Month.
Thankfully, due to the work done by the Gold Coast Fashion Project, the Queensland tourist destination city of Gold Coast will now have its own Fashion Week to promote, support, and celebrate the incredible talent of its local industry professionals.
Pear Collections is proud to officially announce that we will be showing at this year’s Gold Coast Fashion Week showcasing our Capsule Collection which is specifically designed and created for Pear Shaped and Curvaceous Women by a fellow Petite Pear Shaped Woman, Angie Martin.
The brand couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to officially welcome Pear Collections and its community to the world of fashion during this event which will showcase some of the incredible talents our local Gold Coast has to offer. More importantly, we are thrilled to be able to represent Pear-Shaped and Curvaceous Women during this event to further support our community and champion for change within the international fashion community to accurately represent female and male curves.
The Gold Coast Fashion Project was created in South East Queensland where the community enjoys a sub-tropical climate and fantastic opportunity to explore a unique sense of art and culture. The Gold Coast community is lucky enough to host Home of the Arts (HOTA) which continually brings Hollywood knocking at our door.
Given the city’s incredible culture, climate, and A-List tourism base, the Gold Coast Fashion Project was formed to showcase our incredible local fashion community to bring an inclusive look at our indigenous and diverse cultural influences.
Something wonderful about our local Gold Coast fashion community; it is uniquely and distinctively coastal which offers new energy and a sense of creativity to the traditional Fashion Week’s. Due to this incredible opportunity, the Gold Coast city is proud to host a new generation of local fashion designers, influencers, and community members.
