Fashion Weekend Sydney

Sydney Fashion Weekend - Runway show

My first Fashion Weekend Sydney is in the books! It’s an event filled with runway shows, designer sample sales, the latest makeup/hair trends and champagne. It’s pretty hard not to have a good time!

Fashion Weekend Sydney is different than Sydney’s Fashion Week, though. Fashion Weekend is a fun shopping event that has runway shows…but the runway shows include ready-to-wear pieces…so, if you saw a dress you liked on the runway, you can walk out to the sales floor and buy it. Sydney only actually has one Fashion Week, whereas the rest of the major cities get two per year. (Sydney’s is in May.)

If you saw a dress you liked on the runway..you can buy it after the show!

So, this is a fun way to take in Sydney’s fashion scene and also get some heavily discounted designer duds! (Some things were up to 80% off!) Oh, and you can walk around and sip champagne while you shop and get your hair, makeup and nails done – not too shabby at all!

Champagne & shopping – what could be better?

We Are Kindred

I, personally, was a big fan of We Are Kindred. Their dresses were ethereal and many had floral prints (my favorite)…and overall, very classic..in my opinion. I could see myself wearing many of their dresses.


And a close second, for me, was IXIAH. The designs were unique, a bit edgy yet sophisticated. And while I loved the overall aesthetic of We Are Kindred…IXIAH had my two favorite dresses of the whole show! (Pictured below.)

They also had some of the most unique designs. Check out the black crochet dress – wow! I, personally, wouldn’t wear it. But it certainly looked awesome!

The rest of designers featured were amazing as well! Other designers on the runway were: Splice Boutique, Winston Wolfe, SIR The Label, Nice Martin, Bec & Bridge and Rebecca Vallance.

Needless to say, I really enjoyed myself! But like I said in my NYFW post, I really don’t know a whole ton about “fashion” or what’s trendy at the moment. (This is a style blog…I just wear what I like…not what’s all the rage at the moment.) From what I gather from this event, white is THE color for summer in Sydney…and cutouts were popular..as was having your hair braided? Oooh, and everyone was getting eyelash extensions.

I still do enjoy watching fashion and taking it all in, though..despite my lack of knowledge! (And if you were wondering, no, I didn’t buy anything. Haha. I really like to research and ponder before I invest in higher-end pieces…and I’ll be pondering and researching We Are Kindred and IXIAH, now!)


If you are going to be in Sydney next year at this time, give the Fashion Weekend Sydney Facebook page a follow to stay up-to-date on when their event will take place next year (just click here)! And I’m sharing what I wore to this event, here.

Which designer or look was your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

    Champagne and shopping sounds fun! These outfits all look amazing, but I really like the short peach feathery one.

      Oooh I LOVED that one too! So gorgeous! 🙂

  2. Amanda Brezovsky says:

    What a fun weekend! Fashion, getting glammed up, sipping champagne…tres chic! My favorite dress is the one with the feathers on the skirt. The second designer, IXIAH. Wow!


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Oh it was so much fun! And I LOVED that one too! The feathers were such a unique touch.

    We are Kindred is actually my favorite one too, as I love florals. They all look so pretty.
    I also agree that I would take some time to decide on what designer stuff I am going to buy,
    But this looks so fun. So did you get your hair done? 😉

      You can’t beat a good floral dress! And I did not get my hair done, unfortunately. They were offering braiding..like the models have, and I just do not have enough hair to pull that off. Haha. 😉

    Fashion Weekend sounds amazing! Ixiah is very nice, I liked one of the outfits, but you are right, the We are Kindred dresses are fantastic, really etheral! I would love to wear one or more of them 🙂 It’s nice that one can immediately buy a dress, just seen. I would have bought the first picture you showed, what for an lovely and romantic dress, dear Lindsey! Glad you enjoyed it, this event looks so nice! Hope you have a lovely day!

    That looks like such a fun time, and you certainly are a “dresses” girl! Thanks for the vicarious good time, and good luck scoring a desired frock–perhaps the brands will consider a post from you in exchange for one?

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      So glad you enjoyed the post, Bryony! And that is a good idea…we’ll see if I get so lucky. 🙂

    Wow, this sounds like such a fun time, Lindsey! That’s really cool that Sydney has a more approachable fashion week, if you know what I mean!

      Oh, I know what you mean! It’s nice that anyone who wants to attend can go…versus the ever elusive invite for NYFW. It was tons of fun! So glad you enjoyed reading it, Lee! 🙂
