About the Festival
Townsville Fashion Festival presented by Escape Travel
This coming May, Townsville will become North Queensland's fashion capital, full of style, creativity and passion.
The Townsville Fashion Festival presented by Escape Travel gives those who love to be styled, love to look great, enjoy being pampered, and find all things creative to be inspriring, a week of activities that will culminate in a Fashion and Creative show for all to adore.
Held for the first time in 2012, TFF brought Townsville alive in a flurry of fashion, style and entertainment. The TFF has a unique focus of fusion of fashion and all the industries that feed into it. The organisers are a dedicated passionate group of like-minded fashion-inspired local businesses wanting to introduce Townsville to the world of fashion.
The festival creates a vehicle to identify and nurture the talent in North Queensland and by invitation the talent of Australian designers. TFF will continue to assist in the development of the regional creative industries including retail, design, manufacturing, hair & beauty, photography, art, dance and media.
The event has grown to become a programmed product in the regions calendar and now falls in line with the fashion season, events season and Townsville's tropical winter climate.
