This year’s Fashion Exposed trade event attracted a record number of international fashion labels to the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in March.
As the country’s biggest fashion retailing trade show, Fashion Exposed featured more than 500 exhibitors and thousands of fashion labels and international brands such as Slazenger, Spencer & Rutherford and William Rast – the new label from superstar Justin Timberlake.

The three-day event attracted more than 7000 fashion retailers and buyers from across Australia and around the world, a turnout that Australian Exhibitions & Conferences exhibition manager Elissa Duke was very pleased with given the tough economic climate.
“Considering reports of overseas trade shows tracking at around 30 per cent down on visitors, we were delighted with the steady stream of buyers at this year’s Sydney show,” Duke said.
Held annually, Sydney Fashion Exposed is one of the largest trade shows held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, covering 22,500 square metres of floor space across five of the venue’s exhibition halls.
