Set amongst cherry blossom trees under the columned entrance of Brisbane’s Old Government House, the show mesmerised guests with a range of stunning floral looks from the local designers.


The show aimed to inspire this Spring’s fashion trends, challenge the boundaries of fashion and work to break beauty stereotypes in the industry through a diverse range of models of all body shapes and sizes.


Local politicians, celebrities and influencers including Brisbane City Council’s Ward Councillor Vicki Howard and Ward Councillor Damien Anthony Rossi were in attendance.

Created by Logan’s Upma Kite, the former Mrs Australia Universal 2019, Ravishing Fashionistas aims to promote female empowerment by encouraging women to embrace their body – irrespective of their age, body type, background, skin colour or culture.
