ABOUT THE EVENT

The Australian Fashion Laureate recognises individuals who have made a significant contribution to the growth, development and/or promotion of the Australian fashion industry. Established in 2008 IMG and the support of the New South Wales Government and IMG to shine an international light on the talent and creativity within the Australian fashion industry, past Laureate award recipients include Carla Zampatti, Zimmermann, Jenny Kee, Toni Maticevski, Dion Lee and Edwina McCann. 

 

Each Australian Fashion Laureate Award recognises outstanding accomplishments in categories including the Laureate award for Lifetime Achievement, Womenswear, Menswear, Retail, Emerging, Accessories, Model of the Year and Outstanding Creative and for the first time, a new category in 2019: Sustainable Innovation.

As the industry’s highest accolade, Laureate recipients are nominated and voted for by a panel of more than 30 industry leaders including media, buyers, communications professionals, brand executives and designers called the Australian Fashion Industry Alumni. 

The award ceremony will be held on the 23rd October 2019 in Sydney,  Australia.
