Fashion Council WA
Fashion Council WA (FCWA) is a not for profit peak industry body with the mandate to represent, promote and champion the fashion and creative industries in WA.
Through a series of established annual events and service offerings, FCWA facilitates growth opportunities for the sector across cultural, creative and commercial platforms.
FCWA provides industry members with the opportunity to connect with and gain insights from peers and authorities in the industry via a series of Industry Forums, mentoring and development, and networking opportunities.
The WA fashion and creative sector is represented and promoted on a local, national and global scale via a comprehensive calendar of local events including Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, Swim + Resort Series, and WA Fashion Awards, along with opportunities to access international markets via FCWA’s partnership with global counterparts, including China Fashion Association and Mercedes Benz China Fashion Week.
In 2016, FCWA re-launched HATCH, WA's first fashion incubator and a uniquely curated retail space featuring clothing, art and accessories by WA's emerging and established fashion industry creatives.
Through strong partnerships with corporate, government, education, industry and community networks, FCWA provides extended opportunities for the industry and champions the Western Australian fashion and creative sector.
Fashion Council WA’s Industry Forum Series launched in 2015 as a major component of FCWA’s strategic vision to improve and expand relationships with industry figures including designers, retailers, students and associated fashion influencers and creatives to provide industry sector development and networking opportunities.
