Fashion Exposed Now announces The Forum with fashion experts Tash Sefton and Laura Wells


Fashion Exposed Now will return next year, with a weekend showcase at Sydney’s International Convention Centre on the 9th and 10th of February 2019.

The fashion trade fair will feature over 150 apparel, accessory and footwear brands, including swimwear from Polo Ralph Lauren, Lauren by Ralph Lauren and Kenneth Cole, along with swimwear, underwear and socks for men and women from Dsquared2 in an Australian first.

In addition to the trading floor, Fashion Exposed Now has announced the addition of The Forum, a space for a series of talks to be held across the weekend. These will include best-practice tips for retailers and brands alike, spanning digital strategies and retail thought leadership.

The speakers will be handpicked for the audience of fashion buyers, retail owners, stylists and designers. Confirmed speakers so far include:

• Fashion tastemaker and consultant Tash Sefton on trend forecasting in a fast moving market

• Leading Australian plus sized model and environmentalist Laura Wells on transparency, sustainability and why businesses should take note

With more speakers to be announced, the sessions will be divided into business and thought leadership streams to cater for the expo’s diverse audience.

Commenting on previous editions, Fashion Exposed Now head honcho Marie Kinsella said it is shaping up to be an industry meeting point. “In the breakdown of attendees, we found the 75% of visitors were either retailers, stylists or designers. By attending, they were privy to the unparalleled opportunity to spend two days meeting and buying from brands featured at the event.”

Fashion Exposed Now provides a platform for Australian apparel, accessory and footwear brands to showcase their collections. Offerings include emerging, Australian made, European and high-end brands. The show provides an unrivalled opportunity for Australian and International brands to meet with retailers from across Australia and New Zealand and build sustainable relationships.
