Last night, in Sydney‘s historic State Theatre, Australia’s most prestigious awards took place to honour individuals that have made great contributions to the growth, development and global promotion of local fashion. In short, it’s basically the Grammy’s of Australian fashion.
Hosted by drop-dead gorgeous international supermodel, Georgia Fowler (that recently walked the Victoria Secret runway) and comedian Ash Williams, the 2018 Australian Fashion Laureate saw the industry’s best and brightest gather to celebrate this esteemed event.
