Friday night was the Next-Gen Industry Mixer located at Lucky’s Beach Club, Morphettville Race Course which consisted of industry professionals sharing their insight and advice in to the world of fashion, in the many shapes and forms it takes, whether that be beauty, styling, design or even just the social media world of fashion.

Bars were set up at the Flour Shed to get you in the right setting, with SA Gin and Wine pop-up bars topping up glasses all night long.

It was an environment where you could feel the energy, the creativity was at an all-time high and there was an air of excitement in the room.

SA was ready for this.

Sunday the SAFFW concluded at Plant4 at Bowden with a Creative Lifestyle Market, where more designers had their time to shine.  After a weekend full of fashionable fun, rest is needed and time to reflect on the inspiration that SAFFW provided.

I had the privilege of being a partner for the SAFFW festivities which included the backstage crew wearing a custom made SAFFW X FF shirt.  I have to say, I had chills seeing the volunteers running around rocking the tee’s.  Also having Fateful Fashion labelled as a partner with my logo on the Media Wall..

All I can say, is I have no doubt next year’s festivities will be bigger and better, SAFFW is sure set to leave its mark of the fashion world in Adelaide and I couldn’t be prouder to be involved!
