Brisbane Fashion Festival returns to The City this year in our iconic home in the heart of Brisbane, King George Square, from Monday 22 – Friday 26 August.

This year’s program features a thrilling line-up of more than 50 designers – from the hottest labels in Australian fashion, to Queensland favourites and the brightest emerging design talent – presenting in excess of 400 unique, inspiring, and must-have looks for the new Spring/Summer season.
