The Masterclass: On Trend with David Shah – because your all black everything ensemble is getting boring now

If you are a colour enthusiast or just want to know more about what makes colour so important to our life’s, then who better to learn all about it than from Colour Trend Forecaster David Shah. Together with fashion aficionado Glynis Trail Nash you will learn the science behind colour and all things that it effects.


Slow Fashion marketplace – for the environmental conscious woman

New to the Adelaide Fashion Festival, the Slow Fashion marketplace is a well curated look into the sustainable fashion and ethical lifestyles that will celebrate local and mindful making. Enjoy each designer carefully (no packed racks of clothing allowed) and find yourself an eclectic, yet wearable, pieces that give back to environment. No post-shopping regret after this, promise.


Two degustation lunches – because good fashion and good food go hand in hand

The Mercedes Benz Unley Long Lunch – it’s the perfect opportunity to put in for that well deserved annual leave day. Being hosted on a Friday, this event is the epitome of a long lunch – all while soaking in the latest looks from King William Road retailers and giving back – because fashion is not all about vanity, we all need a little philanthropy too.


BNKR show – where Instaworthy looks will strut down the runway

The labels of BNKR are on rotation in the wardrobes of the world’s biggest trendsetters. Get to see the collection before they do. Beat Kendal Jenner at her own game and bookmark (*cough* Insta post) your next ensemble.

If there was ever an excuse to invest in a new ensemble and get your girlfriends together for a night with bubbles, this would have to be it because Bella said so.
