GC Fashion Week has announced the inaugural event (previous known as Gold Coast Fashion Week) will be held at the Broadwater Parklands from Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 November.

Under the guidance of GC Fashion Week’s Creative and Technical Director Andrew Claridge, the event promises an elaborate production, boasting models of an international caliber and a bevy of top Australian designers on show. With a wealth of experience in the Australian and international fashion industry, Andrew’s knowledge spans that of a creative director, producer, runway choreographer and show caller for some of the world’s leading brands. “GC Fashion Week will really push that international fashion show level and bring something different to the Gold Coast,” Andrew said. “Having a fashion week of this level won’t only be surprising to the Gold Coast and its residents but it will push locals to step it up and break out of the typical Gold Coast stereotypes that we are so familiar with.”

The event’s production is already well underway with organisers placing an emphasis on the technical side of the show in order to give the event an international feel. The highly anticipated event will showcase some of the country’s best designers including the likes of Isabelle Quinn, HollyRose Couture, Ixiah, By Kinsman, Duskii, Fairy Floss, Elliatt and Journe along with Jason Grech, Substance Boutique and DISSH.

There will also be celebrations among the runway shows with a VIP media launch and a charity breakfast boasting its own exclusive runway show. On site, guests can expect great music, food and drink, Luxe Lounge, sponsor activations, interactive beauty stations and more. GC Fashion Week is a proud supporter of the Gold Coast Hospital Foundation.
