Fashion Week struts to the shores of Avoca Beach

Avoca Beach on the Central Coast will transform into a festive fashion runway to celebrate local style and talent powerhouses. The inaugural Central Coast Fashion week is kicking off Wednesday 22nd March, at Bombini restaurant on Avoca Drive. There will be a series of workshops and free events with leading fashion designers and influencers including, Elle Ferguson of They All Hate Us, By Weave, and Bohemian Traders taking part.

The five-day fashion event is a celebration of style and creativity, and fashion enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get up close with local fashion designers and influencers. The brains behind the fashion festival are renowned designer, Weave Dibden Neck of the By Weave Label, and Emily Berlarch of Bohemian traders. Together they recognised the fashion talents flourishing in Central coast, and decided it was time to put a stamp on its credentials to launch an event that celebrated home-grown talent.

Alongside By Weave and Bohemian Traders, the Central Coast has borne many of the country’s leading fashion pack, now style leaders of their own right on the international fashion stage, and many are heading back home to take part in the Central Coast fashion week.
