PASSION FOR FASHION at Eumundi Markets

If you're after original fashion, then put Saturday 23 October in your diary for the PASSION FOR FASHION day at Eumundi Markets.

General Manager of Eumundi Markets Peter Homan says PASSION FOR FASHION is a day focussed on the unique designs of the many talented stallholders in the market community.

"Eumundi Markets is a wonderful platform for emerging designers and Passion for Fashion is our chance to celebrate the talent and skill here at the markets".

"On the Passion for Fashion day, visitors to the market will be able follow a special Passion for Fashion Trail on the day -- a trail through the market that highlights more than 60 stalls with a fashion focus," Peter says.

The Passion for Fashion Trail will include men's, women's and children's fashion, as well as jewellery, hats and other accessories.

A highlight of the morning will be parades of the new spring and summer collections from Boom Shankar, Momoko, Glad Ragz, Fabrigami and Truessence.

The designs will be paraded from 10am on the catwalk at Main Stage (in the centre of the markets, adjacent to the Railway Refreshment Rooms).

The market designer collections will be followed by fashion parades featuring original designs made by the fashion design students of Sunshine Coast TAFE, including Certificate II high school students.

Sunshine Coast TAFE Fashion Design teacher Jodie Araya says the designs to be paraded will include a range of calico wedding dresses, wearable art with a mother nature theme, and a series of upcycled garments that will be auctioned on the day to raise funds for Helping Children Smile.

"The emerging designers from TAFE have been encouraged to really 'think outside the box' with an eye on sustainability when developing their designs", says Jodie. "Taking their pieces to the creative hub that is Eumundi Markets is a wonderful opportunity to engage with and learn from designers within the Eumundi Markets".
