Community connections are in fashion

Healthway’s partnership with the Fashion Council of WA will encourage community connectedness through this year’s Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.

The Festival will take place from 6 to 17 September with the positive mental health message Act-Belong-Commit playing a key role for the first time.

Lovers of all types of fashion will be drawn together to share their interests at the festival with Act-Belong-Commit featuring prominently at Fashion Central and the Festival’s Cultural program.

Fashion Central in Perth’s Forrest Place appeals to young people and will feature an Act-Belong-Commit wellness pod, a place where festival goers can gather and get involved in activities designed to help them feel great about themselves and to connect with others. Fashion Central runways will showcase fashions by Aboriginal designers and those from different cultural backgrounds.

The Festival’s cultural program features events and workshops about the fashion industry which provide an opportunity for participants to get together and share their fascination and inspiration about fashion.

Festival Creative Director, Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan, said: “Fashion is much deeper than just what you wear.

“Feeling great on the inside is when you look your best, that’s why Act-Belong-Commit is such a great message for the Festival and, with the myriad of free events this year, there are more opportunities than ever to get involved and let your creativity shine.”

In the lead up to the event, there will be an Act-Belong-Commit social media competition to engage and encourage people to Act-Belong-Commit.
