Three Events, One Weekend and a Whole Lot of Style

With an array of local SA designers ready to walk the Fashion in the Port runway on November 23rd as part of the South Australian Fashion Focus Weekend (SAFFW), this is certainly the fashion spectacular you do not want to miss!

Fashion in the Port is the second of a trio of events part of SAFFW, and will attract local guests to Port Adelaide to embrace the fantastic designers and talent we have in our state.

From the bright colours and patterns of Mifufu! to the delicately designed garments of House of Campbell, each designer who was individually chosen to take part in the fashion-forward showcase offers a diverse and eclectic style true to their own taste.

Director of Ellery Events Australia and event organiser, Katelyn Ellery, said SAFFW aims to create an opportunity for local designers, models and creatives to get involved in a professional fashion event.

“The South Australian Fashion Focus Weekend was the clear next step for SA’s fashion events. We’re aiming to re-energise the fashion industry with small business in mind,” said Ellery.

Each person involved in SAFFW, whether they’re a model, photographer, make-up artist or volunteer, is from South Australia.  

“Never before has there been an event like this, run by the people, for the people. We’re seeking to shake up the status quo and create educational and showcase opportunities for our Adelaide fashion community,” she continued.

Twenty-two local designers will walk the SAFFW runway, some planning to reveal an entirely new collection!

“Fashion can be loved by all, there is no clique when it comes to events run by Ellery Events Australia. We create a welcoming environment for all to enjoy,” Ellery said.
