Braddon Tailors and Fashfest: Through the Years

With Fashfest 2017 about to kick off for another year, we're looking at our collections and how they've evolved since we started working with the Fashfest team.



For our first show during Fashfest, BT presented beautiful classics with a twist. From garments for daily wear to the classic navy tuxedo, we were excited to show Canberra just what we can offer, and how a made-to-measure suit is not just reserved for A-list celebrities. By far, the most popular garments were our denim suits, made from Japanese denim and cut in a contemporary corporate style for men and women.



In 2015, Fashfest changed and grew into a much larger international fashion show, and our collection also took a different turn. Held in the National Convention Centre Canberra, 2015 was a celebration of the arts, with musicians, DJs, artists and fashion designers all uniting under the one roof.

The creativity of our collection was lauded, pairing vintage tweeds, pastel colours and casual shoes with the stunning jewellery of Tanja von Behrens and handmade Italian accessories of Casa Pavone.




Last year, Fashfest moved to coincide with the Spring Fashion season, and BT was on trend with a collection of blues. Featuring luxury fabrics from our own Acton Collection and from famed French mill Dormeuil, textures, colour and layers were the order of the day. We showed off some exciting ladies pieces, and once again teamed up with Casa Pavone who provided their delightful silk grenadine ties, silk bow ties and handmade pocket squares. We offered pieces that could be worn as part of an ensemble or individually, and it was our most popular collection to date.


We cannot wait to show you what our 2017 collection has to offer, and you only have 4 days to wait! Grab your tickets online at and we'll see you on Saturday 30 September in Canberra.
