Set in the backdrop of Fairfield School of Arts, various spectators, journalists, and photographers flocked together to witness an event collaboration between Western Sydney Fashion Festival and The Rise Project. The event is the brainchild of Thuy Lanvin, and this is their second year in a row to run the event.
Amongst flashing lights, media coverage and music – there were 8 talented fashion designers. Founded in 2015 by Creative Producer and Events Organiser Thuy Nguyen, Western Sydney Fashion Festival (WSFF) is an annual community event showcasing a fashion runway for emerging and culturally diverse fashion designers. Pioneered by a group of young creatives from Western Sydney, their aim is to emphasize the rich diversity of fashion talents through social inclusion and cohesion.
The Rise Project, on the other hand, was founded in 2018 by Fashion Designer Marky Dong, The Rise Project was set up with the purpose to help start-up fashion business owners and designers to enable them to sell their products to the “ready to pay” customers.
The fashion show supported and showcased a greater number of up and coming fashion designers such as Armando Clothing, GTAB, Iham A Ismail, Lakshmi Bee, Marky Atelier, Public Island, Sew Pretty and The Social Outfit. Congratulations to Thuy Lanvin for organizing such an incredible and entertaining event.
