FASHFEST – The Stats

When researching this piece we gathered information made publicly available on the FASHFEST website. To calculate our statistics we looked at all shows presented in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and categorised them as as either a show presented by an independent designer or label or a show presented by a boutique or shopping centre. Some presentations including that made by The Canberra Vintage Collective in 2016 and The Salvos this year, featured vintage or upcycled clothing. These were counted under the non-designer category.

We have also looked at what proportion of the designers presenting are based in Canberra at the time each collection was presented. Some designers from previous years have since moved away.

Emma Batchelor

Emma Batchelor

As well as a near obsessive interest in fashion, Emma is a former scientist, occasional contemporary dancer, avid reader and self-confessed cat lady (she has three). Emma lived in Leiden in the Netherlands as a baby and Leiden ought to have been her middle name had her mother thought of it at the time and not chosen Louise instead.
