Three designers will present collections showcasing cocktail glam and elegant bespoke gowns during the first of a series of rolling shows by Fashfest, Canberra's annual fashion event. The high-end show will be held at the National Gallery of Australia and tickets are on sale now. Models wearing voluminous, multi-layered details couture gowns will turn the Gallery's massive escalators in the main foyer into towering runways.

Hajar Gala Couture, one of Australia's most elegant couturiers, will showcase gowns shown at Paris Fashion Week and never seen before In Canberra. Hajar’s Gala’s luxury couture has been featured in the most exclusive fashion magazines internationally, including Collezioni Haute Couture. ‘As a designer I believe there’s a strong relationship between art and fashion,’ says Hajar who creates elegant silhouettes, each with a timeless quality and each requiring tremendous skill to construct.

Megan Cannings Designs will showcase the collection she has just presented at New York Fashion Week. Her new season collection stays true to her aesthetic—feminine, floaty and true fairy tale-like gowns and showstopper evening wear made of special printed silks.

Charly Thorn Designs will showcase her new cocktail and evening luxe collection. Charly is the youngest designer to ever show a full collection at Fashfest. She did so in 2016 when she was just 17 years of age, receiving a standing ovation from guests. Charly, from Cooma, has gone from strength-to-strength and has also showcased internationally. Her resort wear collection was photographed in the Bahamas. This is her third appearance at Fashfest.

Two shows will take place 19 October (same show repeated twice). VIP tickets include one assigned VIP seat, a complimentary cocktail, VIP gift bag, gown exhibition, and an after-hours viewing of the American Masters exhibition. Second row tickets include one assigned second row seat, access to the pre-show bar, gown exhibition, and an after-hours viewing of the American Masters exhibition.
