Unwrap that 2013 diary and get ready to save the date, because Fashion Palette is returning to where it all began to celebrate its 5th birthday.

Following a hugely successful debut in New York last year, founder and creative director Sonya Mefaddi has brought the iconic fashion show - which celebrates and nurtures Australian designers - back to Sydney for a one-night-only sartorial extravaganza.

“It was incredible to see ten Australian designers shine in New York last year for the first time and it will be a dream come true to celebrate our fifth year in Sydney,” she said.

We’ve already been given a sneak peak at the line up for the night - leaders of the Australian fashion pack including Leona Edmiston, Bettina Liano, Nicola Finetti, Akira and Alannah Hill will showcase their brand new spring/summer 2013 collections on the night, with the list yet to grow by 15 more style savvy designers.

The extravagant show is set to take place one month before Australian Fashion Week and ahead of major state festivals like L’Oreal Fashion Festival in Melbourne, and is the perfect chance for shoppers to get a sneak peek at spring/summer fashions and trends ahead of the pack!

To secure your spot in fashion’s night of nights, tickets can be purchased for $49, from www.ticketek.com.au.
