In response to the booming local fashion industry the first annual Byron Bay International Fashion Festival showcased the emerging ‘Byron style’ to a mixed audience of locals and visitors at the town’s surf lifesaving club on Sunday.

In keeping with the ethos of a subtropical community the outdoor venue was chosen for its picturesque aspect and public accessibility. The production team with its extensive festival and corporate experience ensured a state of the art, high fashion spectacle.

  1. What a life saver? The first annual Byron Bay International Fashion Festival made the local economy a bit more buoyant in the poet-named town in true “Byron style” to an audience of mixed genders at the local surf lifesaving club on Sunday.

  2. Crikey. All those empty seats in the front row. Did the VIP guests not turn up to this International Fashion Festival or did the organisers forget to invite enough people?

    • The secret to getting ahead is getting started and I believe the organisers certainly need to be appreciated for doing so. Its more than anyone has endeavoured to do for the Byron Bay community. Perhaps one needs to get off their high horse and support this initiative to help it reach its potential. You create opportunities by performing, not complaining.
