Designers heads up for CN09

Preparations for Circa Nocturna 2009 are well under way, and we are putting out feelers for New designers for next year.

Circa Nocturna is the largest Alternative Fashion show in Australia, with around 14 alternative designers participating from all over the country.

The 2009 show is looking at a number of changes from last year. We have new blood on the team, and are looking at including a larger after party event, a larger catwalk, increased promotion and more sophisticated web presence.

As yet the dates for L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, are not set, though I am told they will be late March, 2009.

Applications will be on the web site ( next week. In the meantime, if you would like to ask any questions, ask here or call Bernard on 0401 561 866. We have limited spots for designers, we restrict the designers on the catwalk to around 14.
