FABSOC Fashion Event



On Monday 13 February, we had the pleasure of attending the Australian National University (ANU) chapter of the Fashion & Beauty Appreciation Society (FABSOC)’s first fashion event of the year. As a proud ANU graduate myself, and with many ANU grads part of Team Leiden, I was pleased to attend this fabulous event.

Founded in 2016, FABSOC is dreaming big this year with plans to stage many more fashion events throughout 2017. To get the ball rolling the FABSOC ANU team lead by president Fernando Goh, staged a runway presentation featuring four young designers.


Millenial Watches

Minimal, affordable watches created by young entrepeneur Riley Tanton.



Esparanza Streetwear

This high quality streetwear label, created by Fernando Goh, officially launches later this year however we got a taste of what’s to come.




Designed by eighteen year old Kathleen Kershaw, the collection from Kershaw was strong featuring pieces exploring the intersection between fashion and art.



The Student Budget

You don’t have to sacrifice style if you are on a budget. The FABSOC ANU team showed us how by styling a range of looks from students own wardrobes combined with op-shop finds.



If you are a student at the Australian National University make sure you head to the FABSOC market day stall on Wednesday 15 February, they’ve got some great giveaways!
