THE First Most Glamourous Sustainable Fashion Event in Cairns – is an exciting new “Black-Tie” event, focused on celebrating “Sustainable or Slow Fashion”.

Direct from the hugely celebrated Afterpay First Nations Runway at Australian Fashion Week in June, Cheryl Creed of Murrii Quu Couture brings this high-end fashion event to the Shangri La Hotel on August 28.

Ms Creed, whose collections have been exhibited on runways all over the world, has curated an incredible runway of local Cairns designers and organisations, celebrating the emergence of “slow fashion”, a trend that rejects the principles of fast fashion and highlights a more sustainable approach to creating clothes.

“I want to help the planet, and help people understand that there are options out there for high-end fashion right here in Cairns, if you know where to look,” says Ms Creed.

The runway will feature 14 exciting collections from local “slow fashion” designers and charity organisations.

“Cairns is in for a real treat, and people will be very surprised to see what our region has to offer when it comes to fashion” says Ms Creed.

The event will be MC’d by Mrs Yolonde Entsch of Empowering Women Empowering Communities, and will also feature a special reunion of Cairns urban pop duo, Shakaya, who shot to stardom in the early 2000’s.

Attendees will also be treated to special guest speakers within the fashion industry here in Australia and also zooming in from Milan.

Cairns Local News announced today they would partner with Cheryl and signed on as a media sponsor for Fashique Runway.

In announcing their sponsorship, Cairns Local News’ Editor Peter McCullagh encouraged other Cairns businesses to dig deep and support this amazing fashion event.

“Cheryl is an amazing designer and ambassador for fashion here in Australia.

An event like this is such an empowering opportunity for the models and designers, they deserve our support, and we are always pleased to lend our support to amazing Indigenous women,” he said.
