Ashley Graham just announced
American super model, designer, author and body activist Ashley Graham will appear at the 23rd Festival on her first ever visit to Australia.
Ashley, whose influence has reshaped the fashion and media industries and redefined traditional beauty standards, will walk in Runway 4 and headline as a keynote speaker at the inaugural Australian Fashion Summit.
From making history as the first size 14 model to ever be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swim, to being the first curvy model of her generation to receive a major beauty contract, to a suite of titles including Forbes’ coveted “30 Under 30” and Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the Word”; these are events you wont want to miss.
The 2019 Festival will bring focus to the theme Power To The Dreamers, encouraging all to do extraordinary things, pave their own paths and empower others through fashion.
“Every opportunity where I can talk about how my career has helped evolve the fashion industry, or every time I walk a runway, I'm proving that there is a "new normal,” said Ashley.
“We need to continue having these conversations and representation until fashion truly reflects the diverse world that we live in. I'm looking forward to sharing my vision and insights at the Festival in March.”
Don't miss out, book your seat now.
