The Australian Fashion
Laureate was established in 2008 by IMG, with the support of the New
South Wales Government, to shine an international light on the
exceptional talent and creativity within the Australian Fashion
industry. Australian Fashion Laureate Awards are nominated and voted on
by a panel of more than 30 industry leaders, including designers, media,
buyers, creatives, brand executives and communications professionals. 

“The announcement of the
2018 Australian Fashion Laureate Awards signals the culmination of
another strong year for the Australian Fashion industry and provides an
opportunity to reflect on and celebrate our collective achievements in
the company of esteemed peers,” said Natalie Xenita, Executive Director
of IMG Fashion Asia-Pacific. “The introduction of new award categories
and a special honouree allows our industry to both acknowledge and
promote the efforts and accomplishments of individuals who contribute to
this industry’s success, both locally and on the international stage.”  
 

“Last night’s 2018
Australian Fashion Laureate celebration was an incredible success. We’re
proud to have gathered the industry’s best and brightest to celebrate
not only their accomplishments to date, but innovation ahead,” said NSW
Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall. “After ten years of
Australian Fashion Laureate celebrations, the NSW Government is
delighted to see Sydney further established as an essential destination
for the global Fashion community.”

The Australian Fashion
Laureate is an IMG initiative, supported through a strategic partnership
with the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency,
Destination NSW, with additional support from Etihad Airways, DHL, Moet
& Chandon, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour, Sanpellegrino and Jan
