The Australian Wool Innovation Campbell Town Show Fashion Parade is back and bigger than ever in 2021.
After the cancellation of last year's Campbell Town Show, the much-loved fashion parade is ready to hit the catwalk once again.
A fixture on the fashion calendar for more than 20 years, the 2021 Campbell Town Fashion Parade is set to be a truly stunning event after the L.A Burbury Pavillion has undergone a $500,000 facelift- just in time for the show.
Taylor Clyne Smith is curating the event, the single biggest fashion show in Tasmania. After modelling in the parade herself, Ms Clyne Smith has stepped up to the role of curator and is thoroughly enjoying working on the other side of the fashion industry.
The catwalk is set to be truly a celebration of Tasmania, with the models themselves all local- a purposeful change of direction from previous years when interstate models would travel especially for the event.
Big in this year's show are autumnal tones, with both wearable fashion and more daring designs set to be featured.
Jan Dineen is back at the Campbell Town show fashion parade with her iconic "wearable art".
Working with Tasmania merino wool almost exclusively, Dineen is a fan favourite at the fashion parade with her unique designs- all knitted by hand.
This year's collection by Dineen is The Pinafore Collection and is set to be a show stopper.
The AWI Campbell Town Show Fashion Parade is an important celebration of Tasmania's wool industry, demonstrating the importance of the commodity for the fashion industry.
"The whole experience is a 'paddock to parade', showcasing our wool growers and where their wool goes to" Ms Clyne Smith said.
Ms Clyne Smith is a passionate promoter of the fashion show for the Tasmanian fashion industry and sees it as a true celebration of the midlands region.
"This is the single most iconic fashion event in Tasmania. It is just such a celebration of our wool, our growers, our models, our suppliers, our designers" she said
"It just comes to life, you've got your growers there with you. There's sheep being judged next door and it just all comes together. It's that real paddock to parade"
A self-confessed fashionista, Ms Clyne Smith has too many favourite pieces to select just one, but her favourite look this season? Coats and turtlenecks are highlights from the collection.
The Campbell Town Show runs from May 28-29.
The AWI Campbell Town Show Fashion Show is May 29 with a show at both 11am and 2.30pm
