Fun, frivolity and fashion at the Royal Canberra Show

As part of the frivolity and fun at the ACTEW AGL Royal Canberra Show, Verve Promotions hosted a series of fashion parades for the fourth year running.

Each year the parades showcase looks from a set theme and includes looks from Canberra Show stall holders. This year the showcase focused on Ladies Autumn/Winter and featured local and sustainable labels.

The show opened with regional label Planet Fab which uses re-purposed fabrics to create warm and long lasting winter jackets.


Looks from local labels Karen Lee and Pure Pod- both stocked at Assamblage Project in Braddon, were stand outs with their clever design lines, textured fabrics and their versatility to suit all shapes and sizes. The beautiful tailored garments were styled with gorgeous leather bags from Sash and Belle.

It couldn't be an Autumn showcase without featuring Autumn racing milinery in the lead up to the Mercedes Benz Canberra Black Opal Stakes race day which will be held at Thoroughbred Park this Sunday. Local and well-loved label Christine Waring's creations brightened up the runway with a retro yet feminine flair featuring clochet hats and a fabulous bonnet with carefully cut flowers in felt.

The models stunned in make up by Canberra Make Up Academy and donned a different hairstyle each day created by Entrepreneur and Hairstylist Julie Okley from Dilkara.

We can't wait to see what to see what theme is in store for next year's Canberra Show!

In the meantime check out the BTS action!
